DIY SCREENS

Pretty sure at some point most people who have thought about getting T’shirts made have also thought about trying to print them on their own.  Well now you can.  We offer the unique service of exposing (burning) screens for you.  That is by far the most crucial part of screen printing.  If you don’t have a good screen you don’t have a good print, no matter what level of a screen printer or artist you are. Check out our pricing and art guidelines if you feel like diving into the world of printing.

When contacting us please specify what it is you would like to print.  ie: shirts/fabric, posters/paper, rigid materials/ etc.  Also what type of ink you are going to use, ie: plastisol or waterbase (recommended for home use-NO solvent clean up) That will help with what mesh of screen we will put your image on.  Another thing is the detail of your art.  Generally fine detail goes on a higher mesh and bold images and text goes on a lower mesh.

Standard Screen sizes are 20″ x 24″ Call for Larger sizes

 Other sizes and Mesh counts available. Please call. 

110 or 156 MESH Average detail Art     $70.00

230 MESH Fine detail Art    $75.00

Each screens comes with film and exposure.

Recommended FILM/PRINT size is 14″ x 16″ but you can do whatever blows your hair back.  As long as it fit’s on the screen.
