Colton Robertson (BFA 2015) completed an internship at Pan Ector Industries in Fall 2014. He had already learned the basics of acrylic screen printing on paper in his classes at UNT, and in his internship learned to differences of printing with plastisol on apparel.  Colton's responsibilities included activities such as reclaiming and prepping screens, printing on a manual press, sorting print jobs, and helping with live printing events.  As he was competing the internship he applied and got the job for a position at Pan Ector.  He was so exited to leave his dead-end retail job, but even more  excited to work in the commercial printing industry.  Congratulations, Colton, on your position at Pan Ector Industries!
