Made to Make It is DIY Print Shop’s rally cry; it’s about believing that each of us is a maker by destiny, and with the power of screen printing handy, it’s easy to unleash your creativity, and become the maker you are, you were, and you wanted to be.
The history of screen printing dates back 1,000 years. It’s one of the earliest forms of artistic expression that has heavily influenced artistic innovation throughout the history of manmade art. Ironically, it wasn’t considered ‘art’, until the 1960’s, thanks to the help of, Andy Warhol, screen printing finally became a highly recognized art form, and screen printers became artists.
Fast forward 50 years, to 2012 when the DIY Print Shop was founded by two screen printers named Ryan and Nick. Both of them had similar roots, both started screen printing as teenagers, by making & selling diy band tees & posters. Today Ryan and Nick have their own screen printing based companies. Before they became industry leaders and master printers, they logged countless hours printing thousands of T-shirts and gig posters with improvised equipment and a lot of guess work.
One day these two companies got together and decided to look back their DIY roots, and why they started screen printing in the first place. They realized they could give more people the power of screen printing, and also make it high-quality, affordable, easy, and fun to DIY. This is why the DIY Print Shop® Screen Printing Kits exist. To give people all over the world the ability to DIY, screen print, and create.
In honor of what screen printing has done, and continues to do for the world, DIY Print Shop is celebrating by giving away two, of its premium, DIY Print Shop® Original Print Shop KitsTM — totaling over $600 worth of all the essential tools, needed to set-up a complete diy print shop — we want to empower you — the maker to use do-it-yourself screen printing to grow your dream, create a brand, share a voice, or even inspire a movement!
