Scott Fresener

Aaron: Welcome to the show Scott. Instead of a bio, we want to start with the time machine. Tell our listeners about the early days… making your own transfers… How to Print T-Shirts for Fun and Profit book… Tell us how it all began.

Terry: Let’s talk about your brainchild, FastFilms separation software. First, for our younger listeners, what is it? And second, how did that software come to be?

Aaron: By the time I got to US Screen your hands-on screen printing classes were well underway. Let’s talk about the evolution of that concept, and how you saw that need in the industry.

Terry: After the break let’s talk about the beginnings of DTG and white ink, and of course what you’re doing these days.

Aaron: You reinvented US Screen while Terry and I worked there. What made you believe Direct-to-Garment printing would be so revolutionary? Talk to us about the T-Jet.

Terry: White ink took DTG printing from a novelty on white shirts to a viable decorating option. Let’s talk about white ink for DTG.

Aaron: You’ve been responsible for some earth-shattering developments in our industry from separation software to DTG printing. Tell us your prediction for what’s next.

Terry: I’m pretty sure US Screen was one of the few businesses with a soundproof band room. Talk to us about what you’re doing in your spare time now.
