Screen printing at home with StencilPro and PhotoEZ

Screen printing is a useful, exciting and fun craft. Traditional screen printing is expensive, messy, and requires a lot of space, making it difficult for non-professionals to screen print at home. Not anymore! StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ Kits and Screen Printing Sheets are unique and specifically designed for use in the home, studio, or small business. They are cheap enough to use once or hundreds of times. Now it is possible to make one, twenty or hundreds of t-shirts.

The StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ kits were designed to screen printing at home without the need for expensive screen printing equipment and supplies. Flexible pre-coated screen prints eliminate the need for the user to cover the screens. The sun is used to develop (burn) the screen, eliminating expensive exposure units and machines. Alternatively, screens can be developed with full spectrum daylight fluorescent tubes or bulbs, or with yudu machines.

StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ screen printing sheets do not use heavy frames. This allows screen printing on curved and irregular surfaces (such as wine glasses and furniture) as well as flat surfaces. Cleanup is a breeze in a typical household sink without those big, heavy silk screen frames. Platens (flat printing forms used to attach silk screen frames) are also not required, another cost benefit.

StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ are professional quality screen prints that can be used hundreds of times with a single design. The stencils (screens with developed images) are not recoverable, the process of cleaning the screens with chemicals and solvents to reapply emulsion to develop a different design. This makes StencilPro™ and PhotoEZ™ screen prints safer for children and adults, and makes them eco-friendly products.
