My first screen printing project, logo patches for our football team shirts.

Evolution of the logo:

Keijut -logo_orig

The original sketch (anonymous artist)

Modifications by Juha Kärkkäinen

Two-color design that was transferred on transparencies

Finalized by me

Silk screens

Real silk! ...and photoresist. Exposed by ultraviolet light through two duplicate layers of photocopier transparencies. The frames are hardwood photo frames that were on sale, 2 EUR each.

Two-color prints (on small pieces of black cotton)

Patch, pigment and opaque printing paste

Not perfect registration of the colors, but what the heck. Also the pigment got stuck into the raster that was too fine.
