According to Enid News & Eagle, Taublieb brought his best —teaching shop employees new techniques and skills and setting them up for apparel-printing success.
Downtown Threads offers a range of custom apparel, accessories, and promotional products in addition to online stores and graphics design services.
Owner Brandi Schieber met Taublieb at one of his workshops and decided to host him for a week at her shop, which isn’t anything new for Taublieb. He travels the world helping shops be their best. With over 45 years of experience in the custom apparel industry, his work includes all things screen printing — from helping shops get organized to teaching procedures and printing techniques.
“The thing with an automatic screen-printing machine is that you can adjust everything from speed to pressure to angles — all geared to getting the print the way you want it to look,” Taublieb tells Enid News & Eagle. “Part of my reason for being here is to get everyone to understand the adjustments you can make in order to get the optimal print out of this.”
To illustrate the unique capabilities in screen printing, Taublieb printed scented shirts. Before he visited Downtown Threads, he saw a Facebook post from Schieber about barbecue shirts, so he wanted to help take that print to the next level.
“I called up a company I work with and asked them to send me some barbecue scent,” he tells the news outlet. “I dug through my artwork, pulled out a pig, added ‘Enid, OK BBQ’ to it, and we added the scent into the ink.”
The scent infuses with the ink and sticks around for about 15 washes. Taublieb and Scheieber opted to add studs and foils atop the print, creating the ultimate BBQ T-shirt.
