21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Best places to buy cheap shirts for screen printing on: April 30, 2005 04:55:56 PM
if you aren't against giving wal-mart your money, they have tons of different colors of hanes shirts for very cheap, around $4 I think. target has cheap shirts too, but the colors aren't as good, IMO.
a lot of times I buy blank shirts from thrift stores or buffalo exchange.

you probably aren't gonna get the ink out without ruining the screen.
my suggestion, when you reuse the screen, place your transparency over it so that the area with the ink will be an area where the emulsion will burn into the screen anyways. I don't really know what else you could do.

and in the future, if it's a dry or a hot day that might make the ink dry in the screen  quickly, get some speedball screen retarder base to mix with the ink, just follow the directions. I used that stuff in phoenix and it was a great help.

thank you.
ironically, the heart print was more inmportant to me and I threw the bamboo in to take up space on the screen, but it is easily my favorite ever!

I love love love that bamboo shirt! I'd snatch that up in the store in a heart beat! I'm soooo jealous!

send me a shirt and a few bucks and I'll print one for you.

with any diazo emulsion *speedball is diazo* I've had excellent luck with the following exposure:

120 flood bulb in a clamp light 18" from my 16x20 screen for 60 minutes.

it's perfect everytime.

be sure to put black fabric under your screen to prevent light from reflecting back underneath the screen:)

jaquard makes a bunch of colors called neopaque which are supposed to be specifically for printing on dark fabric. I have a jar of red, but I havn't had a chance to use it yet, you might check them out.

check out the jaquard inks, they make lots of metalics

don't rub the emulsion, not only can you make pin holes, but if you have a lot of detail with little corner, you may actually start to peal the emulsion off.
use the garden hose with the gun attachment or just put your thumb over the end to make a hard stream. it will probably take 10 minutes to rinse the emulsion from the screen this way, but it's much safer. I also know people use high powered hoses at car wahses, but these can put holes in the screens.

you should always tape your screen before printing. just hold up to light or a bright window and cover all the pin holes with masking tape or scotch tape.
