The time has finally come to get this book printed. We’ve come a long way, thanks to you, the fine supporters of Screen Printing On The Cheap. The book is written, edited and (beautifully) designed. And now, we’re going to ask for a little more of your help to make it real.

If you can take a minute, please stop over to our page at and pledge your support.

Thank you,


With a tornado just over a mile away we printed away on BVDs and tees over at Hoolie Fest in NE MPLS. Hung out with some cool kidos, listened to all sorts of great local music and got our hands inky.
