Screen Printing Equipment And Supplies Check List

Okay so I finally put together a comprehensive list of items needed to screen print tee shirts. I always get asked about this and people will throw out a very vague question like, “what all do I need to screen print?” There are many levels of screen printing so the answer to this question can vary. But here’s a list and rundown of the basic supplies and equipment you might need to screen print tee shirts. It’s brand new so I’ll refine it and add anything I discover I left out or want to include that I didn’t think of in the future. Here’s the link for the page on my ecommerce site.

Screenprinting T-Shirts: How Many Times Can Screen Mesh Be Re-Used?

Here’s another educational screen printing video about the longevity of screen mesh. I did a video very similar to this one a few years back but I wanted this topic to be easily searched and found since I still seem to get this question very often. In this screenprinting tutorial video you will learn about screen mesh and how long it will last. Here we answer a few questions you may be thinking about when you buy premade aluminum screens. We discuss haze and stains as well as mesh tension and frame quality. I also touch on your return on investment for screens. This video should help you understand the minimal investment a screen should be. If you are finding that screens are a costly part of your business, something is very wrong in the shop. Take a few short minutes and watch this tutorial screen printing video that will teach you about screen printing T-Shirts. Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Screen Printing Bella + Canvas Tee Shirts And Hoodies With Review

Here’s another educational screen printing video about some Bella + Canvas products. Bella was very generous and sent me some samples to print a few new tee shirts and hoodies for myself. Of course I used the world famous Catspit Secret Society Logo since I have not used it in some time except for teaching. They sent us a few different styles and colors to do some printing with.

Check out the Bella + Canvas YouTube channel:

Here are the items they sent and a link for each:

Bella + Canvas 3001- Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tee
https://www.bellacanvas.com/product/3001/Unisex-Jersey-Short-Sleeve-Tee.html

Bella + Canvas 3413 – Unisex Triblend S/S Tee

Bella + Canvas 3739 – Unisex Fleece Full-Zip Hoodie
https://www.bellacanvas.com/product/3739/Unisex-Fleece-Full-Zip-Hoodie.html

All of these garments felt well-made and had a nice drape making them all feel very comfortable to wear. The print surface was nice and the poly dyes in the blends seemed to be pretty stable. Check out the video and see what I had to say about a few of these including the hoodies. Take a few short minutes and watch this tutorial screen printing video that will teach you about screen printing T-Shirts. Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Manual Screen Printing Press Systems Upgrade

We are finishing up news designs for the Vista Series 2 presses from Ranar. These new designs along with some other bench top press modifications will universalize all of the press attachments for Ranar. Soon the single station bench presses will take all the same accouterments as the rotary floor presses or rotary bench top presses. This will make it much easier to use the same attachments on both styles of process and it will allow you to upgrade from a single station to a rotary station while still using all the same attachments. Stay tuned…

Screen Printing Tee Shirts: How Long Does The Stencil Last On Screen?

Here’s another educational screen printing video about a question I get asked almost every week. I have probably answered this in other videos as well but again I found it time to make this video short and easy to access. As you know we can use one color ink and clean the screen off to later be used with another color ink. But a lot of people wonder how many prints they will get out of one stencil or how many years will it last. The fact is a screen is a minimal investment that should have a huge return on that investment and this video explains a bit about the capabilities of a screen printing screen. It’s all about proper preparation, storage and usage. A screen should be the last thing you worry about as far as cost. Hopefully I have included enough information in this short video to help you out in understanding screen usage. So take a few short minutes and watch this tutorial screen printing video that will teach you how to screen print T-Shirts. Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Screenprinting: How Long Does An Unexposed Coated Screen Last In The Dark?

Here’s an educational screen printing video about using a question I get asked almost every week. I have probably answered this in other videos before but I figured it was time to make a short video that would be easy for people to access and find by topic. This may sound like a no brainer but it’s actually a very valid query. Generally speaking we can see much different shelf lives of the same products under different environments. So while this video gives you a general idea. There are always exceptions and occurrences that will contradict. But if you’re just starting out as a beginner in screenprinting tee shirts then this video will give you a much better idea of the shelf life of emulsions in the bucket and on the screen. You’ll see that the answer is logical and simple. So take a few short minutes and watch this tutorial screen printing video that will teach you how to screen print T-Shirts. Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Vinyl Plotter: Cutting, Weeding And Applying Custom Stickers To Vehicle

Here’s an educational screen printing video about using a vinyl plotter or cutter to make a custom sticker and applying it to a vehicle window. This is a re-edit of the original longer version where we introduced the Saga vinyl plotters and cutters. Here is the meat of the video with just the action in an abridged version for your viewing pleasure. You can follow along as the vinyl sheet is cut, weeded, and has application tape applied. Then you can see me apply it to the window of my van. A vinyl plotter is an easy way to do your own branding or offer stickers to your existing customers. You can also do storefront window signage and vehicle signage. Doing it on glass makes it easy to remove but you can of course go all out with vinyl graphics on a car or truck. Just remember for larger volume sticker orders, you will have to weed out each sticker yourself and apply the application tape for the customer. That can be a lot of labor. This sort of service is better for larger sized, low volume stickers for business branding and advertising, etc…
