Exposing a Screen versus Imaging a ScreenThis month’s newsletter examines the difference between obtaining an image on a screen versus exposing the screen completely.  Underexposure is a common process in screen rooms to obtain details.  Find out how to avoid underexposed screens that perform poorly on press. Spanish Version

Step Test to Determine Proper Exposure Times A simple method to achieve the correct exposure time for the mesh and emulsion you want to test.

What you can’t see is important in screen making Screen room personnel often use sight and touch to determine the environment a screen is stored in or when it is ready to shoot, but quite often it is what we can’t see that affects the final stencil.

My screens won’t reclaim easily, Why? When a emulsion ‘locks in’ a screen it can be very difficult to reclaim.  The cure is prevention and following good screen making techniques.

Successful Emulsion Coating The emulsion exposure strength and image quality is dependent on proper coating techniques.  Emulsion coating is the key to achieving just the right thickness to be durable on press and to image the finest details in the art.
