On Monday me and Aniqah met to start print screening on our cards. Over the weekend Aniqah painted the cards ready to be screen printed so all we had to do was to set up on screen and start printing. I got in a bit earlier to expose the screen again so that we got the best results from each print and spoke to the technician to make sure we had everything correctly set up.
It was the first time I had screen printing since my college course but as soon as we got going it was really easy. A few mistakes were made but a talk with the technician set us back on the right path and we got into a good rhythm creating around 40 cards in about 30 minutes. By 1pm we had printed all the cards that were painted and we left them to dry before collecting them later on.
Throughout the rest of the week we will continue screen printing cards and we also plan to meet on Wednesday and Thursday to create some chocolate cards ready for our presale on Friday in the Zen bar. It will give us a good idea of how well each product sells and if we’ve priced them correctly, it will also give us a great opportunity to promote our sales event on the 9th February.
