 +=====Notes =====  
 +  * [[members:peteprodoehl|Pete Prodoehl]] has been appointed Area Champion for the screen printing area. If you have questions, please ask him. 
 +  * [[members:tomgondek|Tom Gondek]] is an expert user, in fact, he 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, spray glue, and possibly vinyl and transfer paper. Please make sure you replenish what you use. 
 +  * 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. 
 +  * If you are using vinyl (or another temporary masking/template solution) and water-based inks, feel free to use any of the blank screens kept in the screen printing area. 
 +  * Make sure you turn the heater off (and unplug it) when you are done!
