Well, I just found out my Future Sister-In-Law has one that she’s never ever used and I think we’re going to use it to make bridal party t-shirts. That way we can wear them at the rehearsal dinner.

We screen printed tote bags for wedding favors and our table runners for the reception.

 

The tote bags are screen printed with trees and tied up with a piece of twine so they sat on the table like a tree – sorry, that’s the best pic I can find right now.

 

 

The table runners I sewed from burlap and Darling Husband screen printed our monogram on.

dishtowels, bags for your Bridesmaid or Best Man, ties, hankies, table runners, curtains for behind your cake, tshirts for getting ready…

stocking for christmas, holiday table cloth…

I didn’t even know what one of these was… it looks like an awesome tool! Where do you get one and how much do they cost? Also how complicated was it to make those runners? I am crafy but not super crafty…

@ehsquared:  sorry… am not on here often anymore.  my Darling Husband is actually a screen printer by trade, so he printed them at his shop, not on a yudu.

i’ve never actually worked with a yudu (but will admit to being smitten by their late night infomercial), however it looks to be the same process.

as far as your thick ink on your invite attempt…  you probably just need some thinner.  i would go to an art supply store (like a Blick Art) and speak with someone there (as opposed to a craft store where they sell the yudu, because crafters aren’t likely to know how much thinner and what kind to use).  bring a bottle of the yudu paint with you, so they know what the base material is.

the other thing to keep in mind is it takes very, very little ink to actually squeegee across the screen to print the image through the screen…  and a lot of pressure.  so perhaps try it again, less ink – more brute force!

good luck and have fun!
