Tamas S. Frecska
Tamas Sandor Frecska was born in 1939, Budapest, Hungary. In 1956 he participated in the Hungarian uprising against Soviet occupation and subsequently escaped to the West. He’s lived in the US since 1957 and is a graduate of Beloit College (1961/ BA in industrial design) and LaSalle University (business management). Frecska is the author of many important technical articles for the screenprinting industry. His book, Troubleshooting the Printed Image, has been a mainstay of screenmakers and printers for many years.
Tamas spent all of his adult life working directly or indirectly for companies producing screenprinted goods. He was a production- or department-manager for American Decal, Chicago, IL, Stewart Warner, Chicago IL, Fosco Fabricators, Dixon IL, and Pro Arts Co., Medina, OH. His fascination with screenprinting drove him to become a self-educated engineer and soon started designing both equipment and production programs for his employers.
