Looking for old, used, stretched but UNRECOVERED, wooden screenprinting frames.

Size - biggest I can find.

My primary source has been ebay but "used" have been hard to come by lately and thought I'd put out some feelers here.

I will of course pay for shipping costs.

I'll check back here periodically or you can pm me.

Thank you in advance for your time and any info or leads.

i don't know if this is any closer to what you're looking for.

lots of new wooden, but you said used.

txs for the link, bri.
look like great deals! - But they don't click so you can see them?

Actually, really like the older, thicker, sturdier wooden ones. I paint on them and, the "leftover" screen printing (water based) ink image (using acrylic to paint) adds an interesting dimension.

Txs, though. Bookmarked the site for future reference:D

(here's an old painting on one)

mame, I am going to get in touch with the printmaking department where I went to school, and ask them to put up a notice that you are willing to buy old screens. It can't hurt, and I will give them my name and address instead of yours, and then tell you what kind of bites I get :) I know they had a big closet full when I was there, and that was only a few years ago. Have you put up a notice at BSU yet? You might also put up something on some of the printmaking community web sites.
