  • Class tees

    Hello All,
    I am working with class tees and already ruined 3 screens.
    Does any one have any tip or trick to washout the screen after being burned. I don't want to apply too much pressure so I just use a normal hose with gun attachment but it seems that in some areas I am not spraying correctly and not al the letters in some names are coming out. Help..
    by the way, I'm using a 110 screen and have around 300 names on the shirt.

    Hi Joe,

    Sounds like you may be trying to resolve an image with to much detail on your 110 mesh. Do you have a 156 or 200 mesh screen you can try this on?

    Also, do you have the 21 step exposure calculator? What are your results using that?

      I have 160 screen, but since I am running white ink, I thought 110 would be better.
      I don't have the 21 step exposure calculator... is that something I can download?

        Here's the exposure calculator! Agreed, increasing your mesh count should help and don't be scared of water pressure, it's going to help on that fine detail, be careful and stand back a bit. Wet your screen after exposing and let it sit for a few before washing out your image. This will help loosen the emulsion a bit. I imagine the font size of 300 names on one shirt is really fine detail!
