Ryonet loves working with partners who open their shop to share their story and help people hone their skills and passion for screen printing! Shirt Agency, co-founded by Cole Lundstrom in 2012 alongside his partner Joni, first began by brokering screen printing work to larger companies. With a small customer base, they moved into a commercial space the following year and began manual screen printing in Downtown Los Angeles. Since that first space, Shirt Agency has expanded into a 7,000sqft facility in LA with 2 automatic ROQ presses. In 2017 they are opening another smaller operation in Rancho Cucamonga. Whether you have never printed before, want to learn about the newest inks and techniques, need a refresher on the basics, are ready for more advanced printing techniques, want to cut your prep time down, or ready to see what the next step in screen printing is...this is your class!
Meet Your Instructor!- Cole Lundstrom
Prior to starting his business Cole worked in 3 separate screen printing facilities learning how to manage full-scale operation day-to-day. When asked why he got into screen printing, Cole said, "I love working with customers on exciting new projects each week. It's so satisfying to take a concept and turn it into a premium product".

Frequently Bought Together
Intensive Interesting Information
I've been trying to self-teach myself the silk-screen printing process. I've purchased no less than three very expensive books about textile surface design techniques. None provided me with what I needed to know. I learn best by watching, and doing. In the Cerritos class there is intensive, hands-on instruction. I now feel I have an excellent base of knowledge to realize my designs, and the class also provides practical knowledge about effective business practices. For me, the class paid for itself in the first day.
Totally Worth It
Coming all the way from Nigeria for the ISS, I stumbled upon the Screen Print Experience in LA and I knew I had to be there. Today I knew I couldn't have made a better decision. There are probably loads of people like me who have been following Ryonet's YouTube educational channel and indeed learned a lot, but I have to about that nothing beats a hands-on, physical interaction in a Screen print Experience class. This is totally worth it.
Support and Encouragement
I wanna thank Screen Print Experience and Ryonet for their help, their support, and their encouragement. The instructors were wonderful people to get to know, and because of them, I finally know how to print out a shirt. I hope to continue with this process later on and someday get to experience designing these shirts. Thank you so much SPE, it was a great pleasure attending this class.
