Prague is a great city for a variety of reasons, however there are certain times when you feel like you’re dialing a number on an old rotary phone from the 1970s. Trying to buy specialty items such as photo emulsion for silk screening can prove to be a somewhat trying experience. I’ve hunted down a few different places that offer “sitotisk” and all of them so far have just offered their services as printers, and not as suppliers of the actual tools needed to silk screen. So I went to Amazon (which supposedly is going to open a distribution center outside of Prague in the fall) and then I realized that you’ve got to add 20% on top of every order sent to the Czech Republic to cover the VAT tax which is on everything. So at this point I’m unfortunately looking to just take the train to Dresden (which only takes about 2 hours from the main train station) to get my supplies. I would like to offer bands a service where I could offer both the burning of a stencil into a screen, and help with learning how to print, however I still don’t have a steady flow of supplies to make this possible. I don’t want to be constantly selling all of screens, and having to go to Dresden just to restock. So please if you know where to buy silk screen materials in Prague let me know!
Found a few.
