what's your your set up & experience with it?

one thing i can say tho is don't let yourself get frustrated or discouraged easily, it takes a lot of time and experimentation to get good at. do not expect to just have the equipment and be able to dive in and start making quality prints

also there are forums dedicated specifically to screen printing, they'd probably be more helpful than hb

Word. A quick google search will turn up with a lot of methods and techniques.. Also check out YouTube for tutorial videos, you will learn a lot.

But as he was saying. You will get a lot more from hands on experience than anything else. You'll encounter a lot of issues from registration to ink application, but you will learn from trial and error. 

Be prepared to throw away a lot of tees, have a lot of old tees on hand so you can experiment and test methods/pressures and such. 

Best of luck to ya.
