Scott and Mike Fresener have announced the 2018 Spring and Summer workshop dates for their popular Printers Boot Camp. The Freseners have been teaching classes on garment printing since 1979 and have had well over 15,000 students attend their popular training workshops. These intensive Boot Camp style classes are hands-on and are held at their training center in Bowling Green,Kentucky. If you are starting a business or already print - they have something for everyone. Their Boot Camps cover the entire process from A-Z about screen printing and decorating T-Shirts.
The Boot Camps are three days and cover everything from basic artwork preparation and computer graphics, to screen making, how to use inks, printing and press setup, the business, marketing and selling, pricing, the industry and more. Students even learn about using specialty inks like puff and glitter and how to make heat transfers and print multi-color images on black shirts.
The Fresener's three day T-Shirt Printing Boot Camp is followed by a one day Sublimation Workshop.
Here is their schedule:
3-Day T-Shirt Printing Boot Camp
1-Day Sublimation Boot Camp
In this hands-on class you will learn about the machines and inks available, how to print on textiles and non-textiles like mugs, mousepads, tiles and more. You will learn about marketing and pricing and how these processes fit into an existing screen or embroidery business.
Classes are geared towards all level of printers from startups to experience garment screen printers. In many cases two people attend from the same company or family.
According to Scott Fresener "We have had great success with these classes over the years and we know from the feedback that we take people to a new level. Whether they are beginners just starting a business or already printing and wanting to move to the next level."
