Fantastic Screen Print Experience
by Tristan Wogoman
This class is a must for anyone in the industry of screen printing. The staff at Ryonet is awesome, and very helpful. With the hands on teaching style you will walk away with everything there is to know about screen printing. After taking the class I feel like I have a family in the screen printing community. You get a lot of one on one time with with the staff to answer any questions you may have. They will also ask the questions you haven't even thought of yet. This is the best investment you can make.
Thank you so much for facilitating my visit to Ryonet. I left with my head spinning at all of the possibilities. I thought that I knew quite a bit about screen printing, but Ryan and the other team members exposed me to way more than I could have ever imagined! I think that anybody wanting to know about the world of screen printing, whether they are a teacher that was given a press by the local screen printer who just retired, or an established business looking for new ideas, everyone can learn a ton from Ryonet.
Best Path to Success
by Antoni Fouche
This class has by far set me up on the best path to success imaginable. The hands on skills and interaction with the equipment has provided me with the fundamentals to hit the ground running. But most of all is the connections, wealth of knowledge and family from this point onwards that is invaluable. Thank You.

The environment and the staff IMMEDIATELY made me feel comfortable and even empowered about my journey in screen printing. I was surprised at how exciting and energetic the whole process was. No dull moments, and no forceful sales pitches. I highly recommend this program to anyone that is new or looking to creatively expand on their skills.
Ton of Information
by Jonny S.
The team did an incredible job both days of covering a ton of information while still making the class enjoyable. All of their enthusiasm and positivity was infectious and helped everyone in the class feel more comfortable. I'm looking forward to staying in contact with Ryonet for all my printing needs.
