DIY Screen Printed Wedding Coasters

RSS

Spring is in the air! No really, today marks the first day of Spring, which means it's wedding season!

I am recently engaged and I couldn't be any happier! Until, I realized how expensive weddings are. Yikes! Of course I want the big white wedding, but at what cost? I will definitely be cutting corners and "DIYing" any aspect of my wedding as I can, to save as much mullah as possible. So, I started with coaster designs. I have created one so far that will be screen printed onto wood coasters. The process is SUPER easy, I don't know who wouldn't DIY their wedding!

I searched online for design references. Using a WordDoc, I created my own custom wedding design and picked out a simple 4"x4" wood coaster. Blank coasters can be found at several sources, including online retailers and local craft supply stores. Once I made the stencil (Look here to see a tutorial on making an EZScreen stencil) I screen printed 10 coasters in a row using Speedball white screen printing ink and Standard EZScreen stencils.

I will also be screen printing mason jars to use as drinking glasses and also as flower vases. A "screen printed mason jar" tutorial will be coming soon!

    Yes, for this project I did use the mini stencils. A 2" squeegee in included in the mini kit, along with 4 mini stencils and the small exposure board.

    Thank you very much! Just to confirm, you’ve used the mini stencils? And also do you sell the squeegee in the kit?

    Hi Thi! I screen printed multiple coasters in a row using the same small stencil. I don’t have any photos of this project in particular, but I have another blog post titled “St. Patrick’s Day Wood Greeting Sign” that shows the stencil being used on a similar wood coaster. Here’s the direct link: http://ezscreenprint.com/blogs/news/88489988-st-patricks-day-wood-greeting-sign
    Hope that helps!

    Hi, I’m planning on screen print on to cork coasters for my wedding as well. Just wondering, when you said you had screen printed 10 in a row, did you screen print one coaster at a time with the small stencil or did you screen print 10 coasters in one go with a big stencil. I hope you can help me with my wedding diy. I need to make 250 coasters :/
