How To Screenprint Air Dry Ink: Plastic & Poster Board Signs

Here it is. Finally. The long awaited… yes, I said long awaited, video about printing air dry inks on poster board. That’s right. I was finally able to make the video I have promised many people I would make. I had a project that I wanted to do that suited making the video well. So I decided to combine the project by printing not only poster boards but also corrugated plastic signs. So you get a hybrid screen printing video which will be valuable if you want to print paper or plastics. This video actually features a very cool ink which can be printed on both of these substrates and more.

The video is called, “How To Screen Print Air Dry Ink: Plastic & Poster Board Signs.” This is a hardcore, raw look at printing signs and posters in a textile shop on a tee shirt press. It’s not something I do every day but I can easily print signs on poster board or corrugated plastic. As you can see in the video my shop isn’t really set up for this type of printing but once in a while If I need some signs or such, I’ll do it myself. I have no place to put flat work to dry really but I managed. I printed these Catspit signs on a large pallet with my 6 color manual rotary textile press. Most flat work would be printed on a graphic press but in this case for a small job such as printing some signs for my company, it works out just fine. I think you can see in the video how I basically flew by the seat of my pants to get the job done. I relied on my experience and screen printing skills to feel my way through a type of printing I don’t do very often. In the end, I liked the results and was very happy with my signs.

The video really didn’t turn out as I envisioned it but I think it is very effective as an educational screenprinting video. I hope it answered and satisfied a lot of your questions or queries about he matter. I know many of you have been waiting a long time for this. Remember there is more information about screen printing tee shirts on the website. Thanks for your patience and continued support. Thanks for reading!
