Get off the computer and get ink on your hands! Graphic designers Stu and Nicky Alden open the doors of Ink Lounge, their creative studio in Denver, Colorado, for a peek inside the world of screen printing. This overview series shows just how involved the process can be. From sweet T-shirts to bigger-than-life posters, you'll discover you need space, equipment, and a lot of practice to get to the final product. For more in-depth guidance and hands-on experience on how to do it at home, we suggest attending a local class or workshop to enjoy this rewarding process for yourself.
