The new video is called, “Screen Printing Tip: Caring For Your Prescription Eyeglasses.” This tutorial screen printing video is a quick tips video for those of us who wear eyeglasses and screen print. This is something most people do not think about unless you wear eyeglasses. All of us who are near sighted or far sighted know how expensive prescription eyeglasses can be so this video gives you a few tips on how to protect your costly spectacles while screenprinting tee shirts or other substrates. There are two instances in the screen printing process that may be destructive to high end lenses with premium coatings. We know that spray tack is one of the dangers for eyewear due to the fact that it mists out into the air and settles on most everything in the shop including eyewear. You can simply switch to water based pallet adhesives or you can do what I explain in this entertaining educational video about textile printing. The other instance is when we work with screens in the washout booth. Any splash backs from those chemicals can get onto the lenses of your glasses. Degreasers will be the most benign but what about reclaiming chemicals and haze removers? With these few tips you won’t have to worry about that anymore.
