Can you really screen print with Coffee Grounds?


Please find some links and notes from the 2 Regular Guys Podcast. As many of you know, but Terry and Aaron are fans of coffee and our 2 Regular Guys Coffee Mugs are a hit with all the REGGIE awards winners. When we came across Coffee Printed on Twitter we just knew we needed to have them on to talk about their process. This will be a fun coffee-fueled discussion where we ask the question; Can you really screen print with Coffee Grounds? PLUS we will be announcing the 2016 REGGIE Awards Categories.

Alex White: Screen Printer / Designer. Been at it for 6 years now. This is actually my second career, I spent 12yrs in the classroom teaching High School History down here in San Diego – with a series of budget cutbacks I found myself getting pink slipped every May so I decided to make a professional transition towards my passion in design. This soon morphed into an apprenticeship as a screen printer because everyone knows that screen printing is the easiest way to get rich quick!
