Member Introductions / Hello from Sevenlives Designs
« Last post by Sevenlives on December 19, 2018, 04:37:04 PM »
Hello, my name is David Torres. I'm a freelance designer operating under the name "Sevenlives Designs". I've been working professionally for over a decade now in the graphic apparel industry and have designed (and still do design) for clients such as Disney, Universal Studios, Star Wars (Lucas Arts), The Simpsons, Marvel, and more throughout my career.

I actually used to be in "another tshirt forum" but that's been giving me troubles logging in. Fortunately I found this site and it seems interesting. Pleasure to meet you and hope to someday do business with you guys. God bless.

The one technique I use most often is parenthesis.  If you don't use parenthesis then the words you search may or may not appear in the page, by searching for example "low cost" "graphic design software", you can guarantee that the page will include both low cost and graphic design software.  However a search for low cost graphic design software, could in theory show up "low graphic design", makes no sense but Google doesn't discriminate as to the order of the wording.

Will add that to my book list of tools, thanks.  I find I tend to like using web based apps like this.  They're often a lot quicker in some cases.

Hello friends

I am new to screen printing. As you guys will probably assume, I've been going through a tough learning curve, came across various problems, and have many questions.
Decided it would be a smart idea to join this forum to learn and eventually help others learn as well.
Hoping to build relationships here where we can share our experiences (good and/or bad) together!
Excited to see how my future unfolds in this industry :)

Much thanks,
Kevin

Hello my fellow thetshirtforum community!

I am getting into screen printing and starting from the very bottom of understanding the entire process. As you guys probably will assume, I've come across various problems and questions.

I am having trouble resolving my most recently problem. When I print my design (which will be placed against my screen before putting the screen and design in the exposure unit for the emulsion to harden around the design) there is a dark clear background on my transparency even though in photoshop the background is transparent (the checkered background). It's still clear but it's not the same clearness as the transparency paper. I'm wondering how I would be able to get rid of this darker clear background that gets printed with my design.
I've attempted to play with the settings but nothing gets rid of that clear dark background around my design.

I am using a Epson Surecolor p400
and "Rite Film Premium Waterproof Film - 13x19in" as the transparency paper

Any advice or thoughts would be extremely helpful
Thank you in advanced!
