Question Screen Printing troubles

I've been looking online for a while for a small screen printing package. so far i've found this: http://www.allartsupplies.com/item.php?articleId=900.

I was wondering if this is a good package for me to make a few shirts for myself?

oh yeah, would i need any fancy things like a computer printer for making my film positives, or negatives?

I had one of those packages when I was a young'un. You don't need a computer printer because you have to paint the stencil by hand.
Steady nerves and a steady hand is what you need. And you'll need to be a good artist to paint the image in negative form.

Thumbs down Re: Screen Printing troubles

It really depends on the type of art you want on the tee-shirt.
That screen print package you had the link to looks (to me) really cheesy.

Just what is it you want on a tee?

Lightbulb Re: Screen Printing troubles

If you plan on running a business with that, don't. It's just for crafts like if you wanted to print 1 or 2 shirts. If you're talking about getting a computer and such, you'll want a real rotary press. That's something they sell at Michael's for the craft crowd and the WOW of making a shirt for yourself one time.
