Making a stencil is key in screen printing.
We know that you know that. And, for all time, it’s been a time-consuming process with many steps that include: creating a film positive, applying emulsion or using capillary film, exposing the screen, developing the screen and then letting the screen frame dry.
But, now, there’s a new and improved method to create a stencil with RhinoScreen 2.0 Dry Stencil Film. This process has literally revolutionized stencil-making. And, created a whole big crowd of happier screen printers who are liking this new, 2-step method that eliminates the need for a film positive, emulsion, capillary film, exposure and drying time. The image on the right was created with this latest system.
Once completed, we began the screen printing process. This is what we did next:
- Placed the screen onto a 4/Color – 2/Station manual, a textile printer from RhinoTech
- Screen printed design w/Plastisol ink onto a black t-shirt.
- Placed shirt on the Conveyor Dryer.
- Added BLUE, Textile Metallic Foil by heat pressing on top of the design.
Final result – a Tee with added dimension, a pop of color and appeal (for the customer) and a higher price point for the business owner.
