A tea towel tour.

An old post but still, I'm pretty sure, just as interesting as the day I first posted it so... if you've not seen it before then take another look.

Have you ever stopped, right there in your tracks, and just thought to yourself 'blimey, I wonder how those amazing guys at TOWTT, turn their tea towel designs in to actual tea towels'. YES, YOU HAVE? Then wonder no more, all is about to be revealed...

First, we have to use our artwork to make a screen (they are screen printed after all). The screen looks like this:

Then, the screen is popped in to this machine, where the colour is added, in this example, red. The colours are all mixed by hand to make sure we get the exact shade that we are looking for.

Once the colour is added, it covers the whole screen and then it imprints on to the tea towel (you can't see it but there is a lovely new unprinted tea towel sitting right under that screen).

And there it is. It comes off the printer and goes in to the dryer.


Then we all stand back and admire our handy work.


And that is how you make an Original Wedding Tea Towel! Don't try it at home kids.
