    my first screen printing gig (a sports shop), that's how they did all the numbers for the jerseys. easier, cheaper and quicker than burning a screen. they had this giant, old stamping machine that they would use to cut numbers out the paper. pretty wild.

    Paper stencil. universal least favorite assignment, followed very closely by drawing fluid. That said, I will never complain about... ...anything technical again. Thanks for sharing!

    Any idea what ink he uses?

    For a brief period I worked as a temp as a press assistant in a shop that was owned by a big grocery store chain. We printed all their signage, like the weekly specials signs that they hang in the front windows of grocery stores...."GROUND BEEF: $1.99 per LB!".....that kind of thing. All those signs were done with cut paper stencils....on a huge M&R automatic press....with an auto-take-off and UV conveyor. It was sort of the lowest of tech being printed on the highest of tech. We'd go from printing those to process color mailers. It was boring as hell. Haha. But cool to use such a wide range of techniques.

    I've never seen it done like they did, that was pretty awesome. I've always cut it like a spraypaint stencil to keep it all together or cut everything out and then I'd manually have to place any islands. That was very cool to see, its like weeding a piece of cut vinyl. Always learning.

    My first forays into screenprinting were hand-cut paper stencils:



    I took a course at the art gallery and everyone was doing one colour stencils, but I found that too limiting so I was doing 4 colour ones.
