Hello Jonathan and the Gang,
I have a screen with a image I want to keep, and reprint at a latter date. I have "screen tape" on the print side (see photos) and took the tape off
the ink well side.
I run masking tape in the ink well sides because it is a large image. My squeegee comes close to the sides and I get ink on the inside of the frame walls. When I'm done printing it is easier clean up (in my opinion) all I do is peel off the tape and most of the ink comes off the walls of the ink well sticking to the tape.
My question is, is it OK to keep the "screen tape" on the print side for storage?
The "screen tape" has a lot more tack / sticking power and almost feels like you are really pulling on the screen when you take it off.
Thank You in advance!
HEY JONATHAN WHAT SIZE T SHIRT DO YOU WEAR? I would like to send you something.
