screens for screenprinting

SCREENS

Pre-Press Services
We  offer a coat and expose service for those looking to have a ready made  screen to print without the hassle and equipment investment of having to  do it yourself.


Ordering Is Easy

Simply  order a frame from the stock sizes listed below or bring in a new frame  and email in your artwork. (see artwork guidelines).   Include any special instructions such as image placement in the email.

A few things to consider before ordering a screen:

  • Mesh Count:  If you are unsure of the mesh count you will need, you can refer to the  ink mfg. specs on the ink you will be using.  There is usually a range  of mesh counts you can use with a specific ink.  The amount of detail in  your artwork will also be a factor in determining the mesh count you  should use.
  • Artwork Size:  As a general rule you should leave a border of 3 to 4'' away from the  inside of the frame.  Attempting to print your image too close to the  frame may result in excess force being  used to push the ink thru the screen, which could result in smeared images.
  • Stencil: All screens are coated with a high solids, dual cure emulsion. Dual  cure emulsions will work with solvent based, UV, and most water based  inks.
