Screen printing is a very tedious and time-consuming task. This process includes washing out, cleaning and coating screens. For this entire process, you will need a dedicated shop. And for this, we have a dedicated an entire article for coating a screen for screen printing.
A washout sink:
First things first. For coating a screen you will need a dedicated washout sink with both cold and hot water available. You will also require a filter system to remove other wastes and other impurities. If you already have a septic tank you might want check with a local expert with the chemicals you will be using might be harmful to your tank. You need to need use tepid water so it is necessary that you have both hot and cold water.
Choosing the right edge screen:
There are two options available as far as the edge of the screens is concerned, round edge and sharp edge. Experts prefer using rounded edge screens with a mesh count from 60 to 140 and sharp edge screen with a mesh count of 162. The reason for this is, for most jobs which involve fine details and small halftones don’t require a deposit of heavy ink. Also, you should be able to wash out the image on the screen easily.
Do not overfill or you might spoil the emulsion because of its tendency to run off the sides. For this fill the coater only up to three fourth. It is also a good idea to use a table covered with old newspapers while doing screen printing. This will ensure an easy cleanup. After filling the emulsion started on the print side while tilting the screen for about 30 degrees. Place the coater in such a way that it will allow the emulsion to touch the screen. Now turn the screen upside down and repeat the same process but only apply one coat of emulsion this time.
Using scoop coater:
It is very important that you use scoop coater while doing emulsion. A scoop coater is generally made up of aluminum trough made specially to hold emulsion from spreading during the coating process on the screen. Instead of using scoop coater if you use cardboard to apply emulsion it will result in a mess. These are some of the important steps that you need to follow before you start coating.
Coating the screen:
Before you start any screen make sure you have safe lighting. Yellow bugs lighting will also work wonderfully. As emulsion is photosensitive you should not have normal lighting in the room. This will expose the emulsion and it will not work properly. If your room has windows than coat the windows properly. This will prevent the light entering your room. Also, make sure you switch off the regular lighting. Read More
Mistakes are inevitable in daily life. But they are more so when you talk about screen printing because that will cost you money. Although there are many mistakes which are bound to happen some common mistakes can be always avoided and thus will save your extra loss. Here is the list of common mistakes that can be avoided:
Not cleaning your equipment:
We all know how important is cleaning and when it comes to equipment cleaning is the first thing you should look to do. There are many instances where you might have left little fleck of ink left from your last print jobs, greases, and smudges that you might be left affect the quality of your equipment. To avoid this, clean your equipment regularly and decrease it between the projects. Also, clean your hands before using the equipment.
Check the print:
Once you start using the print one common mistake that many do is not checking it regularly. Make it habit of checking your press before each and every run. Many skip this task in order to save time but it can have serious implications for the printer. Doing this will ensure that your printer is working fine. Because over a period of time the bolts might loosen up from the pallets which will cause blurred images.
Not changing the mesh count:
This is one of the most common mistakes that happen with almost everyone. Over the years there has the system where 110 mesh count is to required and used for every job. This information is then passed to the novice printers and they also start using 110 as a mesh count. Well, this count is true for most of the runs but it is not an ideal number for every job. You should this beforehand that which jobs require how many prints and you will avoid making this mistake.
Trusting internet sources or word of mouth:
In this day and age, everyone wants to sell their products online. People have started to forget the traditional marketing and selling methods. This might be true for some but not everyone can be benefitted by this type of marketing. I think old and traditional methods of selling should be used by the printers again. Start making calls. See what the people want. See the prices offered in the market. Knock on the doors.
Not using spot gun:
We mentioned how cleaning your equipment is essential. But there are many stains that can be removed using spot gun. If you are not using this than there are chances that you could be throwing away many products needlessly. Besides stains, spot gun can also clean grease spots, pin print of ink and stains.
Not using outdoor resources:
There will be many times that you won’t have resources to handle the job. But that doesn’t mean you turn that away. You could always outsource jobs for a very nominal fee. For this, you could pair up with the freelancer or any large print shops.
