Frequently Asked Questions

How do we login to the event?
You will receive a confirmation email when you register. This email includes the Zoom meeting link.  If you don't receive the email, it's your responsibility to reach out to me. You can contact me here.
What do I need to have prepared before the event?
There are 2 things you need to do to prepare for the live event:

  • Gather all of the supplies outlined above.
  • Cut and weed the provided design. You'll receive an email with more details on how to cut the file.

Please do these 2 things before the event, so we can jump right into the screen printing process and finish the project during the our live. If you have any questions about these steps, contact me here.

What if I can't make it at the last minute?
Your enrollment in this virtual class will include a Zoom replay.  If you can't make it live, you can watch the replay anytime.  If you have questions that aren't answered in the live, I still want to help you!  You can contact me anytime.
Will I really learn how to screen print in this 1.5 hour session?
I have taught thousands of people how to screen print during my in-person trainings.  I'm excited to offer this virtual experience with the same goal in mind – to teach you all of the basics to start screen printing successfully!  I have found that jumping in and working through a project from start to finish is a great way to learn.  To get the most out of this experience, I encourage you to follow along using the recommended supplies and ask questions!
