How To Screen Print: Metal Vs. Wooden Pallets

I uploaded a new screenprinting video today but I have been so busy with other projects I didn’t have time to blog, tweet on Twitter or post to Facebook. Until now… So if you haven’t subscribed to my YouTube channel yet that means you may have not been informed of the latest video. That’s a great reason to subscribe! And because it means a lot to me 🙂 Anyway… this is all really based on manual presses because an automatic will come with metal or honey comb type pallets. But in the video you get to see the pallet I burned a little while back… LOL. I know it’s funny, wait no it’s not…

The video is called, “How To Screen Print: Metal Vs. Wooden Pallets.” This screen printing tutorial video describes the pros and cons of metal and wooden pallets. Most metal pallets are made from aluminum and most wood pallets are made with some sort of press board and a “Formica” top. You know these days they are probably not really Formica but it’s the same type of counter surface you find in kitchens. The educational video will compare the differences between the two while explaining why wooden pallets warp and metal ones do not. Find out about pallet rubber and how humidity can affect your wooden pallets. You will get to see what a wooden pallet looks like after it has been burned with a flash cure unit. You also get to see the warp of the wooden pallet compared to the very flat surface of the metal pallet. This is an excellent screen printing video for anyone looking to buy new equipment and contemplating aluminum pallets.

Well don’t laugh at my burnt pallet. It happens to the best of us. But if it happens too often then there’s a problem… LOL. Once every couple of years or so is ok 🙂 Thanks for stopping by the blog and reading my nonsense about printing tee shirts and such. Learn how to screen print with Catspit Productions, LLC!
