Learn the Techniques of Screen Printing

  • August 14, 2019

The majority of techniques in the screen printing process involve print strokes. These include squeegee angles, pressure, speed, and release. The standard trend of a new printer is to finish the ink through the screen by pulling the glass cleaner across the screen at a very low angle.

When using thin ink, this technique can work because ink passes through the screen easily. If you are searching for Denver screen printing online then you can navigate various sources.

However, if it is tried with white, you will not only have difficulty in inserting ink through the screen but also has a very blurry image because you are pulling the mesh screen so hard. Your squeegee should be around 80-85 degrees facing you. You also have to focus your pressure repeatedly on the mold and not on pulling the squeegee to the net.

Many new printers back out of the press, you have to stand on the press to focus your pressure down and not return. When your pressure is focused down, you can simply move the rubber cleaner over the mold.

With the right squeegee angle, all ink will cut the image and pass your screen correctly. You should be able to direct your finger to the design after printing and almost no ink appears on your finger.

Now let's talk about your print speed. When we instruct the printer to use the right angle and pressure squeegee, the first impulse they have is to move the squeegee about the speed of the turtle.

If your speed is too slow, you will not be able to release and delete the screen correctly. After a faster punch, you should almost give the screen a little pop to get the mesh to bounce back and leave a fine crisp print on your shirt.
