Asap introduces new screen printing course

Starting in the winter season 2017, ASAP Screen Printing Inc will be offering industrial screen printing courses to entrepreneurs and hobbyists alike. Benefit from over 30 years experience in the screen printing trade. In three four hour sessions, we teach you in depth how to create and print commercial quality images. We use industry standard software, machinery, and media to show you how screen printing is done at a commercial level.

Mohammad Shiekhy, owner of ASAP, has been at this for over 30 years, learning the ins and outs of how to efficiently produce amazing quality screen printed products. On the prepress side, Stephanie Diederich is a designer with over 15 years experience in working with Adobe software to create eye-catching artwork to industry specifications. David Coca, our master screen printer with over 20 years of experience, will show you how to pull the perfect print every time.

In this course we will teach you...

How to prepare your files

How to prepare your screens and media

And of course how to actually make screen prints on real shirts! In addition, we teach you how to clean and maintain your screens and inks so that screen printing is a breeze every time.

By the end of the session, you will print your own design on a complimentary shirt.

You will learn to take a design from prepress to press to production; the chemicals, inks, solvents, and tools to print; and upon finishing the course a vendor list will be provided to you, and you will receive support from us on your screen printing questions so that your enterprise is off to a successful start.

Our introductory offer is $400 in 3 installments or $300 in one payment up front.

A September Evening With Rafael of SRVD

Tonight we spent time with Rafael Jauregui, Veteran, Entrepreneur, Philantrhopist, and Happy Customer!

Rafael stopped in on Thursday with an impossible job: Print a "Pro Expert" silk screening design that he was hoping to make himself at D.C.'s famed Tech Shop. He got overwhelmed by his deadline, and called ASAP on the advice of his screen printing teacher. Rafael had a design for athletic shirts the Check6 team would wear for the Navy Airforce half marathon this weekend in D.C. The shirt had a 2 color front, 2 color back, and two 1 color sleeves in patriotic colors. It was quite the job, but seeing the finished product, you can tell this one is special.

When picking up his shirts, Rafael told us about his work, and we were fascinated by SRVD's mission to help service members "recharge" by interacting within the military community. It started as a simple idea to hearten veterans: SRVD is a community bringing together men and women who have served their country and now serve each other.

We were so proud to serve someone who has served not only our country but also those who protect it! Thank you Rafael, for your service and your camraderie.

Introducing Stephanie Diederich:
Our New Team Member in Creative Services!

We are pleased to add Stephanie to the ASAP Team in August, 2017!

Stephanie will be working with us as we transition Jonathan to his new work in education. Stephanie has big shoes to fill, but luckily she has size 11 feet, and over five years experience in the print industry, to help her as she transitions to her new role in helping our customers as well as Jonathan has.

Stephanie graduated in Illustration from Virginia Commonwealth University, and specializes in design. An Adobe tinkerer since 2002, she is an expert in digital media and bringing creative ideas to reality. If it can be printed, Stephanie knows how it’s done - she has even dabbled in preparing files for dye sublimation printing on fabric (her star design pictured above right), and 3D printing (her steel "record crate" pendant pictured below right) in her design career. She enjoys music - both listening to and playing (on her miniature guitars Yakko, Wakko, and Dot) - and has an annual pass to Skyline Drive. Feel free to stop by and get to know her during business hours!

As a designer, Stephanie is great at typesetting for all your needs. Check out this menu she designed for one of our clients from a rough drawing (pictured below). She can do this and more, and she is at your service at ASAP Printing.

Stephanie will also be working on this website as well as the new website Jonathan started this year. It’s a sad goodbye to Jonathan, but as he moves on to better things, he is confident that Stephanie will pick up where he left off with panache.
