Silkscreen: Another Alternative Method

I learned a new alternative silkscreen technique: using a sign making vinyl cutting machine to cut the silkscreen stencil from iron-on vinyl.  The vinyl was ironed directly onto the silkscreen mesh.  It held fine and washed off well.  Edges silkscreened nice and sharp.  This was an improvement from using adhesive shelf liner but the vinyl stencil is permanently bonded to the screen.  One small drawback is making sure you stretch the silkscreen mesh evenly.  Overall, I was really impressed with this method.
