Screenprinting Paper Posters With A Textile Press And Vacuum Pallet

Postby Catspit Productions » Fri Nov 04, 2016 11:55 am

In this educational screen printing video we take a look at how to screen print paper posters using a manual rotary textile printing press and a special vacuum pallet attachment. For the most part you can print almost any flat substrate on a manual rotary tee shirt press as long as it can fit under the amount of off contact range you have. But with paper posters we really don’t have to worry about that much and we can use a vacuum pallet to hold the paper in place while we print and pull the screen up. Follow along in this video where I give you a basic rundown of the entire process. I had to add quite a bit of retarder to the poster ink and it made it a bit gray but also remember the camera is affected by the surrounding white paper which makes it look a bit softer gray than it actually is. Poster ink without any additives is usually very rich, flat and deep in its blackness. However the entre halftone came out pretty well and you’ll get to see the print close up in this tutorial poster printing video. Enjoy!
