In today’s day and age, social media is one of the most powerful tools for building your print shop.

Facebook Groups have become an impressive communication system for getting involved in the screen printing community.

Joining several groups and regularly participating will improve your influence, reach, and experience running a print shop. The possibility for engaging with these groups is immense.

As New York's legendary Pete Junior says: "I've made hundreds of thousands of dollars on Facebook." Connecting with the right people at the right time is tremendously valuable – you never know who you're going to connect with or who they have connections with.

Using Facebook Groups will help you:

  • Expand your network organically
  • Find easy access to answers
  • Troubleshoot problems
  • Boost your brand
  • Help colleagues
  • Buy and sell screen printing equipment
  • Discuss what’s new in the industry
  • Share impressive content and prints
  • Challenge one another 
  • Gain isights on your audience
  • Increase website traffic
  • Reach new contract printing clients

...and really, so much more. There's always an interesting conversation, disagreement, image, or joke to be had within these groups. If you're not part of them, you're missing out!

Here are Facebook's top screen printing groups (in no particular order):
