I have to say the Catspit learn how to screen print forum is a great place for video ideas. This video is such an example. There are many great questions posted to the Catspit forum. I encourage you to use the forum to post your questions because it is very difficult to answer them in detail in a YouTube comment. I am sorry to say I can’t do a video answer for every question but I will create videos based on some of the posts on the forum. So if you want to see a video come to life, post the question you want answered on the forum. If I don’t answer it there someone else will and if it is a popular enough topic I may create a video about it.
The new video is called, “Screenprinting Tee Shirts: Using The Sweet Spot On Your Screens.” This educational video was inspired by the very users of the Catspit Productions learn how to screen print tutorial forum on the Catspit website. There were at least two posts that lead many of us to believe it might be time to discuss how big of a design you should put on your screen. Many people these days will demand a much larger print than usually has been done in the past for screen printing logo wear and other garments. So we find that many new screen printers and probably some experienced but not well seasoned printers will max out the size of any given design to near the edges of the screen frame. In this educational video about screenprinting tee shirts Jonathan shares with you his knowledge of the “sweet spot” on the screen with you. This will teach you how to properly place your film positives on the screen so as to avoid the frame edges and thus on press printing problems. You’ll learn about the different mesh tensions a screen can have in different places on the mesh. And you’ll find out why. If you’re having any issues with too much ink and/or too little on the same design and perhaps bleeding, flooding or poor coverage, you may want to watch this video.
