Fabrics for Screen Printing

When it comes to screen printing, natural fabrics seem to do better than synthetic ones. Simply because they absorb liquids better, leaving a vibrant print behind. The second group is usually made out of plastic and oil, which have a tendency to repel water. Since they are very small particles, you’d still be able to print somewhat onto them, but the result won’t be as spectacular as it could be.

Furthermore you don’t know what kind of fabric to pick, stick to cotton. It is the absolute king. Understandably, you won’t always be able to use 100% cotton since they tend to be more expensive. Then your second best choice would be a blend of cotton with something like polyester. 80% – 20%, 70% – 30%, 50% – 50% — the more cotton it has, the better the end result will be.

Finally keep in mind that even if you use 100% cotton, the end result may vary depending on the consistency of the fabric. Thicker materials are heavier and tend to absorb more ink, resulting in rich colours that will outlast those of thinner materials. Finer and shinier fabrics absorb less ink which results in a ‘washed out’ print.   

MANUAL  Silk Screen Starter kit

As the name implies, this process is done by hand . Above all It can be performed by just one person or for better results, by two people. One person uses the squeegee, while the other one holds the screen, for example. The quality of the garments is not affected if it’s done by hand or by machine, in fact, some people may argue that the manual labour has a better finish since it is done with more care.
