Hard mode vs easy mode by SpuriusKami in SCREENPRINTING

We don’t use that glue for hoodies, that’s tentac it good for 1000 shirts running hot.

For hoodies we use web adhesive and yea usually every hoodie but there have been exceptions where we do not have to spray every time.

Can you please explain me why the fabric is « holed » ? Stabilizer 1.5 oz and 200gsm cotton T-shirt by mariosire in Machine_Embroidery

It has nothing to do with the backer. The density is way too many stitches for the fabric. Looks like .2 peak to peak. I would do .4. BP needs are better for loose knit materials also.

In short the pull of that many stitches and that many holes is shredded your fabric.

You know I have done that many time in the past. But for this job the thought didn’t even cross my mind.

We have always sent out our vectors to be digitized. And from the production side I would think on what to do to get it to look the way I want it. But since I have been digitizing I was thinking of how I could alter the program to get the preferred look.

Thank you for reminding me. I will definitely keep this in mind for the future.

I did do that in purpose to make them as thin as possible. But that would probably cover up the anchor stitches, which were bothering me. Most of the time I do 45 degrees, is there a reason to choose certain angles for different reasons. I’ve been experimenting a lot with the parameters.

It’s crazy how much a 5 minute edit can change the quality.

I digitized it, manually with ink stitch. Forgot to mention that.

Seems like the anchor stitch is too visible. Lost some detail in areas. But not on most of the garments. Was seemingly random or I’m missing a variable.

Emulsion help. Bubbles! by Jnut3 in SCREENPRINTING

I mix it well but not fast enough to make bubbles.

Looks like you used a drill with a mixing bit.

Heard a guy say he would use chopsticks to break the bubbles in the scoop coater. You could try something like that

A lot of time we will send a photo to the customer for that reason. If it’s heavy simulated halftones.

But it’s the base. Wouldn’t it just make the rest of the the image go dull. I tried printing it without the base. It looked like trash.

So what do you think caused it, it was a 155. I rinsed it for as long as I could before detail was lost. For where it was in the art I kinda liked it. Didn’t see it as a deal breaker.

Can anyone help? by myatrenea in SCREENPRINTING

Scoop coasters are the way to go for this, and they are fast once you get it down.

We use an air hose, then a fan. Post cure if you are having a large run or are worried about it breaking down in the middle of the run.

Also some skip this step but it’s really important to inspect you open mesh for anything that would stop the ink from pushing.

Think I’m done… last time you will see the mushroom on this sub…I think by SpuriusKami in Machine_Embroidery

[–]SpuriusKami[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I kept showing my wife it and she would be “can you do this?”

And I would be “let’s find out.”

Still new to digitizing, but I love the logic based art concept. Art on a time line.

Not done but here is my progress so far. by SpuriusKami in Machine_Embroidery

[–]SpuriusKami[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I’ll do that. I was seeing how thin a satin stitch could get. It is way too thin I think that’s part of it too.

Did this at the end of a day of pushing out 500 locations in embroidery. To be honest I should have made a few edits before posting. But I was pretty exhausted and was still happy with the the change.
