It’s true what they say: a good screen print starts with a good screen. This seems simple, but high-quality screen creation is actually one of the more difficult processes to master. With variables like humidity, temperature, aging emulsion, and variations in exposure units, it’s important to really dial in the specifics of your screen making process before jumping into the deep end of screen burning. You can put block out and tape on a screen, trying to salvage it for an hour, but nothing beats a good screen done right the first time. Your customers will notice the difference, too. For the best results, make sure you take proper care with each step, and maybe even implement a few tricks along the way.
