Select your silkscreen frame size, desired mesh count, screen printing ink type, and the substrate, or surface you will be printing on. Then upload your image so we can create a ready to use pre-burned silkscreen of your design. Your film positive is included with your silkscreen order.


If your image is too large for the screen size selected, we will downsize your image so it will fit appropriately within the silkscreen frame ordered. We do not enlarge images to fit the screen size selected. So if you are unsure, please include the image size desired as part of your order notes upon checkout.


The image transferred to the silkscreen is the image that is black, grey, or in color. Any part of your image that is white, or transparent will not be burned on the silkscreen. Color images will be grey scaled, unless four color process work is requested.

Where to buy Silkscreen supplies?2009/8/26 23:14 I live in Maebashi, but I'm going to Tokyo this weekend. I'm 99% sure that there's a silk-screening or screen-printing supply store somewhere in Tokyo. There has to be. Does anyone know of a specialty art supply store in Tokyo? I'm looking for photo-emulsion, polycarbonate screens, frames, etc.... Not stationary, paintbrushes and crayons (which is all I can seem to find). Any details would be awesome-sauce.

This Instructable will show you how to make your very own reusable silk screens for printing on fabric or paper. The silk screens you will make will produce a high quality image that will save you time and money. Unlike most silk screening Instructables I have found, this method allows you to silk screen without messy photo emulsion paste. One day I will get a fancy silk screen station machine and use the paste, but today, I am broke... A Cricut cutting machine is great to have for these projects but you can easily make your own designs without one. If you want to get started, just click through the steps!


The first step is to assemble the tools and items you will need. You may have most of the things you need around the house. If not, a trip to Michael's craft store or Jo-Ann's Fabrics may be in order.Here's what you need to make the screens: -As many frames as the number of screens you are making. (I recommend several since you will need more for multi-colored designs.) I used painter's canvas on pre-made wooden frames from Michael's. You can use old picture frames or make your own. The overall plan is to have a wood frame, 1" or more thick, that is sturdy and absolutely flat on at least one face. It must be flat so you get the best seal possible against your project. -A good sharp utility knife. -A medium to light duty staple gun. -Sharp sharp fabric scissors. -Small hammer. -Blue painters tape, the wider the better. -A fine mesh material like the one shown. I believe it is a nylon drape. Any fine mesh that is sturdy will do. Silk is obviously the original, hence the name. I purchased mine from Jo-Ann's Fabrics for about $6 per yard. (It was 50% off at the time, from $12) The fabric was in the Home Decor section on a large roll. 1 Yard should make quite a few screens. (I have tons left over after making 2.)Then, to silk screen, you will need: - Silk screen supplies to include whatever ink or paint you want to use, a squeegee (Which can be improvised with many different household items.), and garments or paper to be printed on. In this Instructable, my wife and I are making "onesies" for our soon-to-be newborn.


In this step you will be creating the design for what you will silk screen onto your article of clothing or paper. This is where a Cricut machine comes in handy, but you will see that you can draw and cut any design you want.Note: This is also the point where you would start using expensive and messy photo emulsion paste. Basically this stuff, while very versatile, will shorten the life of, if not completely render useless, your screens. The idea here is that I can use these screens many times and I never have to use photo emulsion paste, or remover, or any of that. In this example I am using vinyl adhesive sheet, cut as a stencil, in the Cricut. You can also use shelf liner contact paper, which is cheaper. Since it is sticky on only one side I had to use the "flip" setting on my Cricut to cut it out in reverse. Then I stick the design to the flat side of the frame, the side where the screen will be touching the project. I then use the painter's tape to block off the rest of the screen area. In case you haven't guessed yet. The paint or ink will only come through the area that is not blocked off. If you are careful when you ink and scrape, you do not have to block the whole screen off like I did. But alas, I am a klutz... The second photo shows the side that you will be working on; and as you can see, the image is now reading in the proper direction.


Now you are ready to silk screen! Using my left over canvas, with the rough side up, I create a pad for my garment to lay on while it is being printed. When screening a cloth garment, consider using a piece of cardboard inside the clothing so paint and ink do not bleed through. Lay the garment in a suitable fashion so it will lay flat and there are no wrinkles in the project area.


I used fabric printing ink from Michaels. It can be found near the screen printing supplies in the store. I used the ink for the YUDU screen printing machine I believe. Not sure if they still sell that...


These kits were assembled by Jonathan from Catspit Productions using the same RANAR made equipment he uses in the YouTube videos. They are designed to be an honest, fair value based on what you will need. With any of the kits below you will be able to silk screen print tee shirts and other garments with ease. These startup kits and starter packages are built around performance rather than price point. They include all of the supplies and accoutrements that Jonathan would have for himself within each shop set up. Some kits focus on water based inks while others will be set up for plastisol inks only. Our YouTube videos and website will assist you in the learning curve. And Jonathan is always available for assistance.


There are several main features of screen printing, including its ability to be used for mass production, the variety of colours that it can print, the durability of the print, and the cost-effectiveness of the process compared to other printing methods. Screen printing is also able to handle a wide variety of fabrics, including cotton, polyester, and silk, which makes it a very versatile technique. Finally, screen printing can be applied to a wide range of products, including clothing, accessories, promotional materials and more. 041b061a72
