Each year we host SkillsUSA – a state wide screen printing competition for high school aged students that have a printing program. We judge the competitors on how well they’re able to step into our shop and shoot a screen, set up a job, and print a shirt. We wrap it all up with sandwiches from Ruebens Deli in downtown Atlanta, and a Q&A. It’s a pleasure hosting these guys each year. Hopefully they’ve left inspired to explore a career in the arts.

Ed enjoys working, spending time with his family, and has been screen printing since 2002. When he’s not doing any of those things you might find him in his yard making it look oh-so-nice. Overall, he’s a boring guy really.
