Screen Print Experience Class SAC
"Hi, my name is Andrew Nguyen and I am a partner at Garage Champs (previously known as A1 Trading Co) in Sacramento, CA. Although, I find myself wearing many hats during the day my primary responsibility at the shop is making sure orders get done correctly and on time. Throughout my time as a shop owner I have learned that printing is as much a science as it is an art. I am constantly educating myself on new techniques and trying to gain deeper knowledge in everything from stencil creation to the finished cured product. We decided to partner with Ryonet's education department because it gives us an opportunity to meet and collaborate with others who're passionate about screen printing."
Meet your instructor!- Brian Richards
Brian Richards started screen printing just out of high school; printing shirts for college clubs and organizations with a Ryonet starter kit out of his two-car garage. He developed a love for the process, committed himself to learning the graphic design aspects of the business and spent 7 years in the industry before launching his own business. After three years in operation, Brian sold his company to an existing group of young entrepreneurs, originally called A1 Trading Co. now Garage Champs. Full circle, he is now teaching to artists and entrepreneurs who are interested in learning and developing the craft of screen printing. Together they are committed to helping others learn and be successful.

Brian was a great instructor. He answered all of the nonsense questions with ease. I definitely recommend that anyone interested in screen printing make it a priority to come to a class.
Gave me confidence
I am completely new to the screen printing world. Coming to this class gave me the confidence to go home and start printing. This class gave me pretty much all the info I need to start screen printing and hopefully make a good business doing it. Also, Brian made the class fun and he explained everything in a way a "beginner" would understand. I'm super happy with the class and I would definitely take more classes if they are available.
