As a printer I am always interested in meeting other printers, getting geeky over inks and mesh counts, curious about their set up and seeing how they do stuff, so I've decided to take this further and put together a Zine where I would like to include interviews with as many different screen printers as possible from someone printing in their basement to commercial business'. Basically anyone who bloody loves it.
Feel free to promote your business, include website and email address' and whatever. Think of it as free advertisement, just more personal and in depth.
I would really appreciate you taking a few minutes to answer the questions as best as you can, they may be edited in the Zine but feel free to get carried away!
Also if you know anyone who might be interested, please forward this to them. All replies need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know if you have any questions, would like to be sent any copies of the Zine to have or to distribute.
The questions are as follows:
Who are you?
Where are you based?
What do you print?
Describe your setup
Who are your clients?
What's your normal run, and the largest run you have ever done?
What kind of music do you listen to while printing?
How long have you been printing? How did you get into it?
What part of the process do you enjoy the most?
What part do you dislike the most?
What inks do you use?
What materials do you print onto?
Do you have any ecological, environmental or other ethics you put into practice when printing?
How much money have you put into printing- buying equipment and stuff?
Do you have any awesome tips you can pass on to other printers?
Please include a photograph of your workspace and an example of what you print.
