Screenprinting Tee Shirts: What is “Sawtoothing” And How To Prevent It

Here’s another educational screen printing video about poor print resolution caused by emulsion’s inability to bridge the grid pattern of the screen mesh. This is often called “sawtoothing.” Most of the time we see this on 110 mesh counts and lower. Usually this is not much of a problem since we put less detailed artwork on lower mesh counts. But it can be a problem if you experience this when trying to achieve fine lines, curves, circles and any type of smooth, high resolution artwork. This video explains exactly what sawtoothing is and how you can prevent it. I included some of my own home made graphics to help you visualize this as well as a few up close images of a 110 mesh screen with an emulsion stencil. Take a few short minutes and watch this tutorial screen printing video that will teach you about screen printing T-Shirts. Enjoy and thanks for watching!
