Jacquard Screen Printing Kit – Semi-Transparent Colors

Silk screen printing is a form of stenciling. It has a long history and has been traditionally used by the textile industry and commercially for poster reproduction. The process involves a piece of fabric mesh tightly stretched over a wood or metal frame. The fabric originally was silk, but more durable polyester is commonly used today. A stencil is applied to the screen by various methods. One of the easiest and most versatile methods to create the image in the screen is with photo emulsion. After making the screen, the inks are pulled over the stencil image with the squeegee, leaving your image deposited on fabric or other surface. This kit provides what you need to create your own screened prints with this traditional technique.

Two screen printing kits

Jacquard Products has two screen printing kits featuring Jacquard Professional Screen Printing Inks that will appeal to beginners and professional screen printers alike. The Semi-Transparent Colors Screen Printing Kit is designed for printing on light backgrounds. The Opaque Colors Screen Printing is designed for printing on dark backgrounds.

Tips and Troubleshooting.

a. Pre-wash any fabrics that you will be printing on to remove any sizings.
b. For T-shirts, put foam board or papers inside the shirt so that the ink does not bleed to the other side of the shirt.
c. If the photo emulsion won’t adhere to the screen, wash the screen with warm water and a little dishwasher powder. Let dry completely and try again.
d. If too much emulsion washes out, possible causes:

  • the screen was not exposed long enough.
  • the water pressure was too forceful or too hot in the wash out.
  • the screen was not completely dry before exposing.

e. If the emulsion won’t wash out of the image areas:

  • artwork was not opaque on the acetate.
  • the screen was exposed too long.
  • image was not completely flat against the screen.
  • the screen was placed on a reflective surface while exposing.
  • the screen was exposed to too much light and/or heat before exposure with artwork.
  • wash out was incomplete.
