Can I use a vinyl cutter to make silk screens for printing? Answered
I have a vinyl cutter and have been using this to make tee shirts for about six months now. I have recently been asked to make a couple of hundred tee shirts for a local charity so need to be able to make them as cheap and quickly as possible. I was therefore wondering if I cut use my vinyl cutter to cut a 'stencil' for blocking out a screen for screen printing. The design includes some very straight lines and some small detail as well as some text.
My idea is to cut out my design as a negative and somehow stick that to the inside of the screen as the blocker? Or would I need to use it to 'block' my blocker?
Has anyone successfully used a vinyl cutter for this purpose?
Thanks in advance.
