How To Screen Print Tee Shirts: What Is Stencil Drag? What Causes It?

Okay so I had to do a reshoot for this video because after I slept on it I didn’t like how I explained parts of it. So I did a reshoot for those scenes and re-edited the video again today during store hours. I usually like to do that late in the day or evening and do the render overnight. But you know how it goes. Make sure to look out for the awesome sound effects in this video 😉

This is an instructional video that was recently requested by someone I spoke with by phone about screenprinting. This educational printing video discusses what stencil drag actually is, how it happens, and how it affects the print result. In doing this you will also learn how to prevent stencil drag and keep your prints looking crisp and fully registered. There are a few things that can cause stencil drag that you should be aware of so that you don’t accidentally create too much stencil drag unknowingly. Here we talk about the 3 main causes and what this problem does to the print result. Follow along as I demonstrate what happened when the stencil drags and how the stencil moves in relation to the pallet and your print position. This video will help you keep resolution and registration in your screen printing endeavors. If you have been having issues with blurry prints or registration problems, then take a moment to watch this tutorial video and see if we can’t help you out. Enjoy the video and thanks for watching!
