Are you familiar with classic screen printing?

Then of course we don't have to tell you how much time will be spent in the preparation. Think of degreasing the gauze, drying, applying emulsion, allowing it to dry overnight, making screen printing film (or outsourcing it), lighting in a dark room, rinsing in the rinsing unit, drying and only then can you start screen printing. Unless something went wrong with the emulsion or with the lighting, because then you can start again. And what about the space that all screen printing frames can take up. And how much work it takes to remove the emulsion from the window for the next image.

We have the solution… our Ready To Print screens!
We place your image on the window and you can immediately start screen printing!

How does it work?

1. You send us an image via email. This can be a .jpg, .png or .pdf file.
2. We make your Ready To Print screen and send it to you by post.
3. You can immediately start screen printing at home.

The Ready To Print screens are stretched on the frame with special double-sided tape and you can screen print. Afterwards you rinse everything under the tap. You can remove the screen and directly paste another image on the frame. You can make about 500 prints with a screen, often even more. Keep the screens out of the sun and keep them in a display folder in an order. And you can store hundreds of screens in 1 order (you can also buy them from us).

Please note ... these are not templates that you can cut yourself. This is screen printing mesh where we put the image.

What is possible?

In fact, anything is possible, just like with classic screen printing. Images such as drawings, illustrations, photos, but of course also texts and logos. So it is no different from the classic silk screen frame. Take a look at our YouTube channel, where we show the possibilities in various videos.

How do you deliver the files?

You can make a drawing on the computer or just on paper with a black pen or marker. You take a photo or scan of it and we can convert it to a silkscreen frame.
 
  • The file is a .PNG, .JPG or .PDF file
  • In 100% black and white, so no shades of gray
  • The image is actual size
  • Max 19,5 cm x 30 cm
  • The lines are tight, so no pixels (see image of the duck), unless that is the intention of course
  • Minimum 300 DPI
  • Send large files (larger than 1 MB) via www.WeTransfer.com (free)
  • If the image consists of several colors / layers, you send us the file to be printed per color (you must therefore split the image into colors yourself - see our manual via this link and our YouTube channel)
  • Screen size is ± 27x39 cm, image = print area is max 19.5x30 cm.

You will receive exactly what you send us on the screen, so double check the image, we do not provide art work.

Tip! Watch our videos on YouTube about the possibilities of the Ready To Print screens. There is also a video on how to split colors in Inkscape. On the Tips & Tricks page you will find more information about 'DPI' and 'Resolution' and where you can find that information.
 

What should you pay attention to?

If you are not yet familiar with the principle of screen printing, it can sometimes be difficult to understand certain things.
 

Photos


For example, a photo is possible, but only in black and white, and not with shades of gray or color gradient like a print from the printer. The mesh of a screen printing frame is open or closed, so not 'slightly' open. Ink may or may not pass through.

After receiving your photo, we will convert it for you so that it is suitable for screen printing. You will receive an example from us by email for approval. We do not provide extensive artwork. You can also convert a photo to a raster / halftone yourself (this is possible with various photo editing programs, we do not provide support for this).
.

Are you going to screen print photos on a light background or on a dark background?


It is also important to know whether you are going to print the photo on light materials or on dark materials. Because then we need a negative of the photo (if you are going to print white on black). Also watch the video about this on our YouTube channel to see the differences. Because printing a photo on a white or black background gives completely different results.
 

Are you lacking inspiration?


You can also buy images and illustrations via various websites (so-called stock images). Are you going to print series on items (eg a clothing line) with those images to sell? Then it is important that you buy the correct license from the publisher, which is often clearly stated on the relevant website how this works.

Of course your own copyright rests on your own drawings, so you can do whatever you want with them. And that is of course much more fun! Or drawings made by children, also great fun to make a Ready To Print screen!
