Screen Print One Colour Yin Yang Fish Image on T-Shirt by Vinyl on Self-Tension Frame with 250 Mesh

Screen printing is the century-old technique in which ink gets transferred to a surface to achieve a specific design. To ensure accuracy, an emulsion gets infused into a mesh screen, forming a stencil that blocks ink from reaching areas outside the design.

In this video Riley from Lanford Agencies shows you how he screen-prints a t-shirt on flat surface using a self-tension frame with a 250 mesh. Only one ink colour was used here.

Select and setup your design on the vinyl cutter software.

Cut out your design by making use of the V-Auto Superfast Vinyl Cutter with Automatic Contour Cutting.

Remove the excess vinyl that you do not need on your design.

Cut out some backing paper and stick it onto the vinyl. Trim off the edges so that it fits onto the self-tension frame. Press down with a card.

Apply the vinyl onto the self-tension frame with 250 mesh.

Add tape on each corner of the self-tension frame.

Apply a generous portion of green ink onto the screen.

Take a squeegee and run the ink back and forth, across the entire screen.

Once you are satisfied with the results achieved.

Let the T-shirt air dry or simply use a heat gun to have it dry quicker.
