Approved Members


  • Tom Gondek is an expert user and owns the machine.
  • If you're not an expert, please use only water-based inks, not the Plastisol inks!
  • There are a number of consumables such as ink, tape, and transfer paper. Please make sure you replenish what you use/donate to the area and appropriate amount for the space to replenish it with area funds.
  • Clean up! Screen printing is messy, especially for beginners. Make sure you clean the squeegees and screens and the machine itself. Don't leave a mess for the next person.
  • Make sure you turn the heater off (and unplug it) when you are done!
