Domingo Gigante — Gomas

Algunos comentarios tras el post de ayer de Tom sobre la goma: – La goma (squeegee) es probablemente el elemento más subestimado en casi todas las tiendas que he visitado. Puede arreglar muchos problemas pero es casi imposible hacer una buena impresión con una mala goma. – No confíe en la compañía que fabrica su…

More About Squeegees

A few comments  of my own after Tom’s longer post on squeegees yesterday. –       Squeegees are probably the most underrated item in almost every shop I have visited.  You can overcomes many problems in a shop, but it is almost impossible to do good printing with bad squeegees. –       Don’t trust the company that makes…

HOARDER ALERT!

Do not watch this video if you are a hoarder. Tom and I have some hoarding tendencies, you can see us fidget a bit as Paul Gallagher, successful CEO of Hirsch International and a most zen individual, tells of his making the Hirsch offices more efficient and by doing so, his elimination of “things.” One…

La Cuisine de l’Encre “Pas à moitié cuit, traité.”

There was some controversy to our post on American Apparel yesterday. We are certain that the following interview will straighten everything out.    

TBT – Not Following One’s Own Advice

In honor of my post on American Apparel, here is my TBT post from my old blog, musing on procrastination and on equipment. It was inspired by head manufacturing dude at American Apparel Marty Bailey. Fact: We have one of the most reliable presses ever built, an MHM SP4000. The SP3000’s and SP4000’s we have…

A Visit to American Apparel

  The  Ink Kitchen aims for the quick jab, a paragraph and a photo and back to your day. Occasionally a subject will deserve a longer form. A day long visit to American Apparel is such a topic. From time to time you’ll see these longer pieces, probably about once a month. You also are…

Super Gel

My good pal KC Hruby did the art on this piece. It is a great example of being creatively thinking about some artwork and how it can go on a shirt, instead of either just sticking existing artwork on a shirt, or even picking from an existing bunch of techniques.       The artwork…

TBT – Old and New Friends to the Rescue

This week’s Throwback Thursday post– Our business of slinging ink is a sleazy one. The rag trade tends to the dishonest, the penny pinching, and the unethical. It has been mused that it came from the fact that screen printers historically plied their trade printing license plates in prison. I don’t buy that explanation, as…

Our mate Joel Taylor is owner of PSI Screen Printing and he hales from Currumbin Waters in Queensland,  Australia. His shop is not far from Brisbane, which is a long way from Long Beach, CA where Know-It-Alls Tom and Rick interviewed him for The Ink Kitchen during the recent ISS show.  His wife luckily considers…
