Every aspect of the business
I went from someone who is along for the ride with their spouse to wanting to be involved in every aspect of the biz. Great weekend of information from a great set of peeps. Fun atmosphere.
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.
