A bit of ghetto-printing class in Hanoi

We are wanting to introduce screen printing into our production team, so I have been scouring Hanoi to find suppliers of screens, ink and someone who can expose them for me. So far I have found screens and ink. The screens range from $2-5 each. Kind of a crazy dream really. It is hard to find the rest thou as even with a translator, words like 'exposure' can translate to funny meanings! Even getting the man at the ink shop to answer my questions about the type of ink was difficult... he said 'it's a long story, you will have to pay me'So just for fun we had a go with paper. The end product at the moment is for the amazing carbon activated facemasks  that Blue Sphere invented for the motorcyclists in Asia.
