Meet your instructors! - Erin Moore / Justin Moore

Erin and Justin are co-founders of Barrel Maker Printing. Together, they bought their first silver press from Ryonet in 2009 and created their first business in the middle of their living room. Eager to get business going, Justin began marketing professional services all around the city, and they quickly outgrew the house they started in. After moving into their new commercial space, they started doing big jobs for corporate brands, local schools and even the government. Erin loves the satisfaction that she gets when the many variables of screen printing come together to create a perfect product and Justin's passion for his work is infectious, "I love screen printing. Every job is different. There is always trouble shooting and problem solving. I love that you can achieve the same results in many different ways."

Great hands on experience

by

We are a brand new start up with no experience in screen printing. After two fun days with Erin and Justin at Barrel Maker Printing I came away feeling more confident. They made the process of screen printing seem much less confusing even though there are many challenges in the industry. They where very patient and fun. Very knowledgeable. I loved being able to have lots of hands on and actually doing the different types of screen printing processes.

The entire team did a fantastic job answering all questions and customizing the class to all different levels of screen printers in the class. They were friendly and very approachable in making us feel like no question was stupid. Great experience! A must do prior to screen printing.
