Attention: Next Generation of Screen and Graphics Printers – Enter to Win Student Printing Competition

Tom Frecska Student Printing Competition sponsored by the Academy of Screen Printing Technology (ASPT)

The ASPT is dedicating its Student Printing Competition to Tom Frecska. For those of you who didn’t know Tom, we want to tell you that he was a gem of a human being; a nice guy who was in his element as editor of ScreenPrinting Magazine before his sudden and unexpected death in 2009. Tom was an especially ardent supporter of educating young people in the important art of screen and graphics printing, so the renamed award is a poignant and apt tribute.
