Nothing bad ever came from the perennial process of trial and error. If you caught up with Part 1 of HBTV‘s T-shirt printing series, we linked with ICNY Sport founder and designer Mike Cherman who iterated the simplicity of making your own graphic tee. Connecting with Alex Dondero of New York’s leading printmaker, LQQK Studio, the two industry veterans show us how to elevate the printing process by drafting your own design from a photo of your choice and rendering it as a hi-resolution grayscale image on Photoshop. Taking special transparent inkjet paper, the logo is then prepared in a light-sensitive emulsifier before being printed on a tee and layered with plastisol ink or a water-based finish.
