Screen Printing with Vinyl Quick Guide
Prepare your design and cut it using your cutting machine.
Remove (weed out) the areas of the design you want the ink to go through.
Apply the included transfer tape sheet on the prepared vinyl sheet.
Remove Vinyl from backing paper.
Place the vinyl on the mesh of the screen frame, and remove the transfer tape.
Smooth out the vinyl on the screen using the squeegee.
If printing on fabric, place parchment paper inside or on the back side of the item to prevent the ink from bleeding through.
Place the screen on your surface.
Using the craft stick scoop some ink and place it on top of the vinyl design, not on the open areas directly.
Starting from the top, use the squeegee to to pull the ink through the design applying light pressure.
Squeegee over it 1 or 2 more times.
Lift the screen and reveal the result!
