This week’s Photo-Friday image is of Glen printing a 64-color job on a Lawson Trooper automatic screen printing press. It’s a time-consuming and arduous task, but the end result is a wonderful Multi-Tech Plastisol Standard Color Chart to send to our customers in order to help them decide the perfect ink colors for their next screen printing job.
Don’t want to prep, coat and expose a separate screen for each and every one of your colors? Glen’s got a trick for that! Here he is utilizing only one screen for up to four colors by adding hand-made channel-spacers in between each color on the screen to keep them separate. He’s then using a custom-cut V-squeegee to stroke in each channel simultaneously. This technique is called “split screening.”
Do you have a job that requires that one special technique you haven’t quite mastered yet? Are you looking for ways to improve your shop’s quality and productivity?
