Screen Printing T-Shirts: How Long Should Emulsion Dry before Exposing?

Hello Screen Troopers! Here’s a quick tips video to help out with a common question. Many people ask me how long should they let their emulsion coated screens dry. There are a few variables to consider and I know many of you need to rush this process. In this short and casual tutorial video I share my thoughts on the best practices when it comes to drying your emulsion coated screens. Take a few minutes to hear what I have to say about this topic to potentially save yourself wasted time and materials. Remember, eliminating variables will make things easier. Now I’m off to help others in the Catspit Screen Printing Militia. I hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!

Screen Printing T-Shirts: What Are These Patterns In My Print Surface?

Hello Screen Troopers! Here’s a quick tips video to help out with a common but minor issue you might encounter when screen printing your t-shirts. Even when you have all your ducks in a row you may notice imperfections in the print surface from time to time. While there are many reasons a print may have imperfections in the surface, there are a couple that are easy to overlook. This video briefly touches on this topic and gives you the knowledge to avoid it. It may be something more likely to happen when printing on lower mesh counts and high deposits of ink in wide open areas. And automatic presses may or may not experience this at all. Well I hope it helps someone out. I had a few people with this problem recently. Now I’m off to help others in the Catspit Screen Printing Militia. I hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!

AWT Accu-Print High-Tech HL/RP™ Flatbed Press

The Accu-Print High-Tech HL/RP™ flatbed printer combines the leading attributes of the High-Tech HL™ and RP™ printers. The result is a four-post microprocessor-controlled flatbed printing system for high-speed production of virtually any rigid panel (glass, wood, metal, etc). It offers exceptional ease of operation and print quality along with the ruggedness to handle heavy panels.

The registration system has one electric eye for missed sheets. Further enhancing its versatility are features such as automatic transport, parallel peel control and vacuum system with blowback.

APHT_HLRP-1

The remote diagnostic feature, which uses a phone modem connection to link the onboard microprocessor to the A.W.T. diagnostic computer, reduces costly service calls and cuts downtime by up to 80%. The print area ranges from 22 x 30″ (56 x 76 cm) to 52 x 120″ (132 x 305 cm), with print speeds up to 500 pieces per hour.

The Ranar Scamp DX-200 Satisfies The Most Demanding Home Printers

Check out this review that came into the ecommerce site today. It’s about the little mini belt dryer from Ranar. The Scamp DX-200 is a 110v that runs on a 20-amp breaker. It’s what we call industrial 110v. In homes 20 amp breakers would be found on lines going to the kitchen and/or garage. Usually they are installed in those places because home builders know that is where plug in appliances or tools will be used.

DX200_004

Have a quick read:

“This conveyor dryer has increased my in-home shop’s production immensely! It heats up very quickly and offers a very consistent cure. This is a SOLID machine and it is very evident that this thing is built to last. If you are using a flash dryer to cure your plastisol prints and are looking to take the next step then you NEED this conveyor dyer. You won’t regret it!”

– Ian

Screen Printing T-Shirts: What’s The Best Squeegee Durometer & Size?

Hello Screen Troopers! I had a different video planned for this week since I need to print a few Catspit tee shirts for my brother. This is another of our “best of” series where I answer questions that I receive very often. In this tutorial video I discuss what’s the best squeegee durometer to use when screenprinting tee shirts or other fabrics. Many people look for an all in one solution to things like screen mesh, ink and this is the same case with squeegees. This educational screen printing video will also briefly touch on what’s the best size of squeegee to use. If you’re just starting out I’m sure these 2 questions have crossed your mind. Take a moment and watch this short instructional video that will help your DIY efforts thrive with a little insight on this topic. Now I’m off to help others in the Catspit Screen Printing Militia. I hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!
