Tips for Creating Crisp and Clear Screen Prints with Fusion 180° Ink
Creating eye-popping screen prints that stand out with Fusion 180° is simple by following our three tips.
Start with High Resolution. Quality artwork is key to success in creating a print that is crisp, clear, beautiful, and bold. Make clear guidelines for providing artwork to your shop, recreate the design from scratch if needed, and don’t forget to proofread your artwork.
Substrate Does Not Matter. With low temperature ink, it does not matter what substrate you are working with. It is easy with our ink to create the look you want whether it be a tight weave or not! All you need to do is lower the temperature of your dryer and you will be able to screen print on all fabrics without running into any problems. The low dryer temperature enables you to screen print on 100% cotton covering fibers, 100% polyester and sublimated polyester blocking dye migration, 50/50 sweatshirts preventing scorching, nylon and non woven preventing melting or shrinking, and raincoats adhering to thicker fabrics.
Screen Printing. When it comes to screen printing images with half tones using Fusion 180° ink, we recommend using a 280 mesh underlay with a 45 line dot. The color screens that we use are 305 mesh. Please use quick flashes to gel. Don’t forget to set the dryer at 240°F to 260°F for 40 seconds. To guarantee matching the correct colors, I suggest switching to our pigment based matching system.
