Screen Print Experience Class TX
This screen printing class in Texas offers the viewpoint of a successful automatic screen printing shop grown from nothing...and a little bit of rock and roll!

Meet your instructor! - Brett Bowden
Over the years, Brett Bowden split his time between rock-n-roll and screen printing. Screen printing won out. He prides himself in offering the best information and helping to guide all that ask. Screen printing is a community and Brett embodies that. “Printed Threads knows how to deliver the right product at the right time, and to custom tailor every order to meet the customer’s needs. This is not just a job...it’s a passion, as well as an art form.”

I wish I would have taken this class BEFORE getting into screen printing! It was a great gateway class into understanding the world of screen printing. Printed Threads staff was knowledgeable, helpful, and sincere in their endeavor to “spread the wealth”.

I came into this class feeling in over my head. By the end of the weekend, I felt empowered to go home and get started. Thank You!

Can't say enough good things about Printed Threads. Brett was awesome and definitely went beyond my expectations to make sure every single persons questions were answered or directed them to someone who could answer them. The materials provided were top notch and got to basically print every type of job you will be exposed to running your own shop. The fact that someone was willing to open their shop to us and see how it's really done on a large scale, and allow you to run their equipment being instructed how to do it every step of the way was worth the money alone.
