Screen Printing Halftones Like A Pro

Geno from Wichita Screen Printing and LearnHowToScreenPrint.com is back again to show you how to print halftones, using the Alternative Go-To Tee (style 1070). You can get some really amazing printing detail if you do it just right, so we’re here to help you get the best results possible.

If you’re wondering what halftone printing is though, here is a brief summary. This method is a one-color process that uses a series of dots varying in size or spacing, which combines together to form a gradient of that color. Those gradients then help to form the final image.

The number of halftone dots in the print is measured in LPI ( Lines Per Inch ), which is the number of dots per linear inch. The amount of detail and smoothness of your print will be determined a lot by the LPI.

In the video above, Geno will show you the difference in the results when printing using 35 LPI vs 55 LPI. He’ll also touch on the importance of screen tension, and using the right mesh to get the best results.

Gildan Brings Down “The HAMMER!”

When we think of a “hammer,” we typically imagine a heavy metal object swinging down on top of nail. NOW, you’ll be thinking of the ALL NEW heavyweight Gildan Hammer Tees instead.

Available in short sleeve, long sleeve and also with a pocket, they have a slight classic fashion fit and a little more weight (6oz.)  to them then the average retail tee (typically around 4 oz.). Combed ringspun cotton adds that softness we all love in our tees and a Tearaway label makes “The Hammer” a complete package!
