Screen Printing T-Shirts: What Is The Platen, Pallet, Palette Or Shirt Board?

In this short quick tips video about screen printing I’ll share my thoughts on what to call the shirt board, pallet, palette or platen. In my many years of screen printing tee shirts I have heard people refer to the board we put the shirt on to print as many different things. The most common of course are pallet, palette, platen and shirt board. But which one is correct? Which one should we sue when we discuss screen printing in person and online? In this short but fun educational screen printing video we discuss that very matter and take a look at some of the definitions of these words or terms. And in my humble opinion each one of them has their own definition that could lend the appropriate properties to screen printing tee shirts. So in the end is there a universal dictionary for screen printers? You’ll have to watch this tutorial video to find out what I think about the subject. Check out the video, learn and enjoy!

Don’t forget I offer FREE SHIPPING on screen printing equipment anywhere in the continental US and all crating or boxing fees are included in the pricing! PLUS no sales tax except in California. Enjoy the video and thanks for watching!

Throw Back Thursday 4 Color With Halftone Screen Printing Job

Here’s a look back at a pretty cool job I did when I was printing commercially. This series of pictures shows the print progression of a 3 color on a white under base. The black screen has a halftone for the bottom of the snake’s skin. Check out the close up for some awesome detail and a very close look at the tight registration. We also did a video on this where you can see a test print being done. I was able to cheat the black a little bit by doing a double stroke.  Sometimes that can be a problem with print resolution but in this case it worked out just fine.

You can see the video here:

Screen Printing T-Shirts: Substrate Side Or Ink Well Side Of The Screen?

In this short quick tips video about screen printing you’ll learn the definition of 2 very different terms that refer to the actual screen itself. Sometimes when we speak about or teach screenprinting we need to differentiate from one side of the screen to the other. One side is called the ink well side while the other is known as the substrate side. Do you know which is which? Have you ever heard these terms and didn’t know what people were referring to? Or maybe you read a screen printing article and did not understand what the author meant by using these phrases ink well side and substrate side. Then this educational video will help you out in understanding the difference and why each is called what they are. This video will help you sound more professional while helping you understand and absorb information about screen printing more easily. Check out the video, learn and enjoy!

Screen Printing Equipment: Cheap Imported Screen Printing Presses?

Are you shopping on Ebay or Amazon for screen printing equipment? Yes, the imported kits are cheap. It’s true they offer a lot and promise the world. Sure you can get a lot for your money… Or can you? Does it have magnets to hold up the print head? Is it designed poorly? Is it made well? Do they offer service and parts? Can you see it in person? Will it last? Does it have a lifetime guarantee?

Trust me. If you’re in the Phoenix area or anywhere in the continental US and you’re looking at equipment on Ebay, Craigslist, Amazon or anywhere else then stop and take a moment to evaluate what you are looking at for what it is.

Elite-Print-Head-ISS
Yes, my manual rotary screen printing presses will cost you more than cheap imports but they give you more. Simple, reliable designs, heavy duty build and a lifetime guarantee. Free parts for as long as you own it. You cannot go wrong. All steel construction made in the USA by American workers feeding their families.

Some imported items are good products of course but when it comes to screen printing equipment you should look at my generous offerings. I even beat out other American made presses with my free shipping, no credit card fees, no sales tax except in CA, and a lifetime press guarantee. Only available from Catspit Productions!

DriverMod Industries Performance Car Enthusiast Meet: Tempe, Arizona

Here’s a short video about a drive we took to the DriverMod Industries performance car meet in Tempe Arizona. This is a social gathering where car enthusiasts of all types come together to hang out and discuss cars. You’ll find a couple old American muscle cars, new high performance cars, and a lot of smaller engine imports with modifications like turbo and ground effects. You’ll also see modified Corvettes, newer Camaros and Mustangs. There’s also a small selection of exotic imports. This event has a much younger crowd than your usual American muscle car meet up but it’s well organized and very mellow. Everyone seems very respectful of each other and the cars. It’s peaceful, family friendly and you can tailgate a bit in that people hang out with coolers and lawn chairs. We took our 1979 Z-28 Camaro with the 406 Stroker this week and had a great time. Besides one other older low rider pickup, we had the oldest vehicle there. The video was taken at night so it’s not as sharp as it would be with full daylight but it’s a great look at this local Tempe, Arizona automotive meet.

Combine Screenprinting And Airbrushing On White Tee Shirts Or Black Satin Jackets

Here’s a very cool photograph of a white tee shirt that has a black ink screen print on it but also has some air brushing. So the black line art is screen printed in black ink and the color is all airbrushing. The translucent airbrush paint does not cover or alter the black screen printed ink. Therefore you can airbrush right over it and there is no problem. The result is a tee shirt with a design on it in full color. Airbrushing can be minimized for larger print runs and it’s an inexpensive way to be able to charge a lot more for a 1 color tee shirt print run. Think about adding only 1 or 2 colors for ease and consistency. Paper stencils may also be used to help guide the sprayed paint onto the desired areas. You can also do this with black satin jackets of any kind where you screen print white ink and then air brush the white ink. The translucent airbrush paint will disappear into the black satin jacket shell. It may also work on other dark nylon jacket shells. Be sure to do testing before you promise anything to your customers.

Ross

Thanks to Ross Schneider for watching our videos and sending in this shirt. You can check out the airbrush stuff he used here:

Another Recent Product Review: RANAR 4 Color, 2 Station Bench Top Press P-4200BT

Posted By Jamie

“I have a new shirt printing business and was looking for a 4 color press that would be solid and reliable, with the ability to upgrade to 4 stations. With my Indiegogo funds, I was able to purchase this Ranar 4/2 press, and I couldn’t be more happy! I’m a stickler for good equipment, being a NYC trained illustrator, it had to be top notch. Great purchase!”
