Headline for Make your own Screenprinting Frame

This is a great way to save money or launch a small business. Thank you to CharliMarieTV for the instruction. Her YouTube channel is HERE - take a look! Many projects found wings by promoting their work on t-shirts, posters, stickers, and even tote bags. The first step to success is buying or creating a screenprinting frame. A do-it-yourself approach will save you money in the long run and hopefully give you more opportunity to experiment and develop your own style. This is the MATERIALS LIST for the exercise.
