Lon Winters, president of Print This, Inc., Colorado, US, shared his views on the efforts of his company to use the 'Cowboys of Faith' quotation from a belt buckle of a cowboy outfit for creating high-density print concepts for infant and women's wear. The belt buckle was converted into a full front printed design for garments by the company in an effort to develop creative designs. The company imported the high resolution scan at 300 dpi into Photoshop to create the design the high-density design for garments. It put the background in black, as it wanted to print the design on several shades of gray to black. The company emphasized on creating a dimensional font and arching it around the outside of the buckle imagery as it wanted the new version to be a bit different than the first version. Source

The Christian-Edge.com part of the business tries to be involved in a number of outreach and other Christian projects. Once all colors were converted to spot colors, the printed out separations right out of Illustrator. Once in the RIP, one would make sure the process colors were turned off and only those spots were to print to film. Two screens would be exposed on one of our standard size retension-able roller frames. The black was long but not all that wide and the white was relatively small, so only the one screen would need to be oversized. The company laid the entire shirt right on top of the platen, not threading it as they would when loading a more traditional print. To get the Ts to stay together, workers at the company sprayed a simple heavy starch into the middle of the opened. All garments would have labels cut out and the ATA brand printed into the neck. That was the easy part, whereas each size, country of origin and contents would also need to be in each shirt, which is a different label. Source

Lon Winters, president, Print This, Inc., US, discussed topics including future line development, pricing, production schedules and the project to be shared with the company's clients that manufactured several branded clothing lines. The participants in the meeting stated that it was essential to focus on performance with a purpose. It was found that the efforts of the design team resulted in the long-sleeve performance running shirts turning out clean and matching the paper proofs from the design department very well. These efforts helped the partners in the project to cover its costs and improve their performance with a purpose. Source

Lon Winters, president of Colo.-based Print This, Inc./GraphicElephants. com, shares views on a project to print an image of SGT Sara Davis and SPC Jessika Williams standing in a Hummer in Afghanistan, where they had been on a mission. The project was begun by opening a color photo into Photoshop. It was simply an emailed jpeg image in fairly low resolution form. For the project, a gray scale or duotone of the photo was to run, so it was required to turn the full-color photo into a black and white. The Image and then Adjustments and Hue/Saturation from the top menu were chosen with the image open in Photoshop. Adjusting the saturation slider all the way to the left, at 100 percent, and bingo, the color was gone but the tonal values remain. There was the gray-scale image. The oversized gray film was exposed on a new, larger static framed screen with 305 meshes stretched to 20 N/cm. The balance of the plates went on 230s all at 20 to 25 Newton. Source

Designers Lon Winters and Don Hendricks explain how they started their clothing business. They decided to print two whites and a black on the red bandanas. The first white would be exposed on a 156 tpi mesh at a tension of 35 N/cm. This film would get an eighth-point overall choke to compensate for any gain we may get on press. They set this screen up first, followed by a flash and cool station. What began with white migrated into black and finally red bandanas. With the opacity set at 50-ish percent and the new layer locked, they were able to see the new lines as they drew and recreated the image. The point of the beak would be our first anchor point, then others were set around the shapes until it was built around the mascot's colors. This way, when the fill box would fill in the shapes with color, it would be ready to be output to film on the inkjet. Source
