Stretching S and LX Meshes: These finer meshes require fine tuning your stretching process and handling techniques. A handy guide to understand how to stretch S Mesh

Using S Thread Mesh from Murakami S-Mesh from Murakami has significant advantages for easier transfer of ink due to a greater percentage of open area.  This open area requires less squeegee pressure to print that conventional T mesh which lays the ink on the surface of the shirt for more opacity and a softer hand of the ink.

Murakami Pre-stretched Screens Murakami offers precision stretched screens on overbuilt aluminum frames.  Our proprietary stretching machine results in uniform tensions across a set of screens with similar mesh count and aligns the threads square to the frame to allow common halftone angles to image moire free.  We also stretch on the bias, or with the threads at an angle to control fine line print quality in horizontal and vertical lines.
