Warped screen frames

Postby sandyclaws » Sun Jul 23, 2017 5:52 am

What kind of problems present when trying to use warped wooden frames? And is there a way to still use warped frames effectively?

They will be difficult to work with since they won't sit parallel to the pallet. You can have print clarity issues as well as different volumes of printed ink. Also the mesh tension is likely to be poor and you'll lose more print clarity and use more ink than is needed.
