Choosing the right screens and screen printing screen mesh counts.
Our standard screens are aluminium framed, as it provides the durability and longevity needed when printing large runs. Also, when exposing frames to water in a dip tank or washout booth aluminum frames will not warp (unline wooden frames) ensuring you keep flat frame and mesh. Aluminum frames can also be stretched and re-stretched many times, therefore making the process more cost effective.
If you are stuck on which mesh count to choose just remember; higher mesh count = higher detail. The higher the mesh count means the finer the threads and holes are in the screen. The size of the mesh has a lot to do with how detailed your image is and the viscosity of the ink.
110/43t: Considered to be a course-medium screen, this is known as the mesh that does all! It’s a highly popular mesh for general screen printing but not used for very fine detailed prints. Good for printing text and solid prints.
