Does the screen printing peel off after a few turns in the washer? Any tips on preventing this?
Dec. 27th, 2005 04:59 pm (UTC)
No, it doesn't peel off like iron-ons. It's more of an ink and it gets soaked deep into the fabric.

i just randomly decided that i wanted to know how to screen print a few minutes ago so i googled screen printing. this entry was a first page result, and it was exactly what i was looking for. awesome!

First off, just wanna say that your tutorial is awesome. I googled, "Screen Printing" and your tutorial popped up. I even got a Livejournal account just so I can ask you this quick question.
I went to Michaels and asked the lady there to help me locate Screen Printing ink for making shirts and she gave me Block Printing ink and said they were the same thing.
I tried it out but the ink is way too thick and doesn't seem to go through the fabric too well.
Should I go back and look for Screen Printing ink or is it really the same thing as Block Printing ink?

I have no idea what block printing ink is, so I'd try to hunt down some screen printing ink.

Speedball brand screenprinting ink for fabric, or acrylic pain mixed with a textile medium.
Dec. 27th, 2005 04:50 pm (UTC)
bless you!
:D i've been searching for years for those super expensive screen-print machines without looking at the diy way of things.

this is a great, great help. thank you so so so much.

;D i just wanted to pop a question along the way....
can the ink you print on your shirt be any other colour other than black? can you print two colours on the same design?
Dec. 27th, 2005 04:57 pm (UTC)
Yes, the ink comes in colors other than black, and yes I'm sure you can split up a design to be two or more colored, just get creative :o) Good luck!

A quick screen printing question
Well, I read through a lot of the comments, but not all, so don't hate me if this has been asked. I am just curious as to whether this stuff has a long wash-life, as in, does the ink remain on the shirt after many washes? Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with your instructions in the near future!

Re: A quick screen printing question
As far as I can tell with some of my older shirts I've made, the ink really works into the fabric, and it actually gets all nice and soft almost - it does fade slightly, but nothing like the peeling, faded mess of iron-ons

Hey, this is one cool tutorial. I was thinking, i really hate tracing stuff on paper i dont want to imagine how anoying must be doing it on fabric... so i came up with an idea.

What about using transfer liquid to transfer the image on the paper onto the fabric? I think it shoudl work, im gonna give it a try soon.

Alright I went out and bought everything, but I now I realized I bought Block Printing Ink and not Screening Printing Ink. Is that bad? It's the Speedball brand though. And it says water soluble so would that mean I couldn't wash it? I guess I was just so excited about finding it, I didn't pay close enough attention. Thanks for this tutorial though, it's amazing.

Yeah, you're going to need the screen printing ink. Hobby Lobby and Pearl Arts carry it.

This tutorial is fantastic. My shirts came out great. Thank you!
