AFAIK he has had the boards perfectly silk-screened. But now it's about 
small batch and saving money. Silkscreen printing is NOT cheap for small 
to non existent series: You have to make a screen, adjust everything, 
get the ink mixed etc. The screen can be kept for a long time. But every 
time you want to use it, you need a certain amount of ink which will be 
lost. And the time for adjustment etc.
So silkscreen printing is the opposite of flexible. But it's fun to do 
and you can produce WONDERFUL results.
