20"x24" Screen 110 mesh or equivelent (12XX)
Ink (Black, Red, Yellow, White)
Photoemulsion (I used Speedball Diazo)
6 Inkjet Transparencies
Step 1: Trace Design
i have included the JPG and the vectors as SVG, AI, and PDF
Step 2: Seperations and Arrangement
the WARRIORS text is 3 colors: white background, red text, and a black outline on the text
the winged skull is 5 colors, but i used 4: Black, White, Red, and 2 shades of yellow, but i put in stripe halftones to act as the darker yellow.
i included a JPG, a PDF, and an AI (don't print the jpg, it will have bad edges)
Step 3: Printing Transparency
Illustrator: (see Image)
you can then drag the box around to use the least amount of Transparency. keep in mind that setting the orientation to portrait or landscape may help you out.
Acrobat Reader: (no image)
File>Print>Page Scaling>Tile All Pages
once you've printed your transparencies(i had 6) you can tape them together with clear pacaging tape or similar.
Step 4: Coating and Exposing Screen
exact process i followed.
once i coated, exposed, and washed my screen, it came out messy around the edges. i fixed it with masking tape. keepin mind it will take longer to expose a bigger screen as the light bulb will be further away. mine took about 40 minutes@150W but don't hold me to that.
Step 5: Ink
Step 6: Printing
-trace the outline of the screen's frame on your table
-trace the outline of the screen on the transparency as you exposed it(seen in picture)
-line up rectangle on transparency with rectangle on table
-place vest under transparency with the desired componet in the desired place while maintain rectangle alignment
-remove transparency from the vest
-align screen to rectangle on table without moving vest at all
-print component of design on vest(mask undesired components with 3m masking tape)
-repeat until finished
so, as long as your carefully aligning, you can get perfect alignmet this way.
It worked great for me, all of the components were within 1/16th of an inch.
I dried my vests with a heat gun in between prints.
