Screen Printing starts of by you printing out artwork in black onto vellum artwork paper. You use colour separation software to produce multiple pieces of artwork if you wish to print in more than one colour.

You simply choose the size of screen which you require and follow the steps below to create your finished screen. Screens are like a mesh stretched out onto a wooden or aluminium frame to the correct tension.  You can buy them usually ‘off the shelf’.

Screens are available in different ‘mesh counts’ depending on how detailed you artwork is  - e.g. 43T for standard designs or 90T - 120T for more intricate work (where ‘T’ stands for ‘Threads per centimetre’)

Degrease Screen before
applying Emulsion

Apply Emulsion
(in subdued light)

Place artwork on top of screen and expose to light

Wash screen (to reveal the
areas which will allow you to push
the ink through onto garments
using a squeegee)

Dry screen thoroughly using
a simple device such as a hair dryer

Apply and flood the screen with ink and
print!

If using air drying inks, simply hang your garments and let them ‘air dry’ naturally. If using Plastisol inks’, use a heat device such as a Spot Dryer or a hand held heat tool (the latter will be more time consuming when drying inks).
