Screen Print

Screen printers have access to a dedicated, light-safe room suited for all screen preparation needs. Coat, expose, washout, reclaim, dry and store your screens all in one convenient room.

The main print studio has multiple hinge clamp stations fastened to large, mobile tables designed to handle screens up to 31×40.

Art Gym’s screen print area is designed and set up for flat stock, fine-art printing using acrylic ink. Art Gym is not a t-shirt printing studio.
