Question about surface area

Posted on Thu, 30 Mar 2006 at 18:15

First let me say that this site is a wealth of information regarding our mutual hobby, and I appreciate any help or advice that anyone would be willing to give me. A few friends and I have started our own screen printing business, and many designs we have in mind use a large surface area of ink on the t-shirts. A problem we are seeing is that there seems to be a clumping of ink on the side of the screen that comes in contact with the shirt and on the shirt itself after application, which distorts the design . Are there any ways to avoid this without changing the design to lessen the surface area? Perhaps we are doing something wrong in the application or maintenance of the screens? Is there a particular kind of ink we could use to avoid this problem? Again I appreciate any help that could be given.

Thank You, Frank
