More information about aluminium screen printing frames (mesh incl.)

  • Perfect for high-quality prints on medium and long T-shirt runs with the same design.
  • Aluminium frames with a longer useful life than other materials as they are more resistant to humidity. They won’t rust like iron or deteriorate like wood.
  • Greater durability with a direct impact on your costs, which make them more cost-effective.
  • They keep their shape under tension and expansion. This shows in the print quality as the mesh tensioning will not be affected.

How to choose the right screen printing frame?

  • Difference between yellow and white mesh. Yellow mesh refracts light and gives you more definition in very complex designs.
  • Screen size(*). Determined by the size of the image you are printing. Generally, you have to add 15 or 20 cm to the size of the image to know which one you’ll need. For example, if your image is 30 x 40 cm, you’ll need at least a 45 x 55 cm frame. The 50 x 60 cm one would be perfect.
  • Screen stretching. We stretch the screens to 27 newtons, varying this value according to the experience we’ve accumulated over the years.
    • The recommended tension value varies depending on screen size, mesh, frame material, and, most unpredictable for us, the surface on which you’ll be printing your design. Therefore, it is impossible to set a starting value that is not beyond the reference. We are open to you telling us the tension you’re looking for. You can specify it in the comments box.

TROUBLESHOOTING

  • Screen damaged in transit. If the package is visibly damaged before opening it, do not sign for it. And if, for some reason, you decide to sign it, write it down on the delivery note. If the damage was not visible until you opened the package, call or email us as soon as possible so that we can resolve the situation in the most convenient way for both of us. You have 10 working days to claim transport damage.
  • 2 screens stuck together.  Take them out of the package and separate them from the others. Do not try to separate them by pulling on the frames. Instead, tap them gently on the floor at a slight angle. This should separate them without damaging them. If this doesn’t work, feel free to contact us.

(*) All measurements given are internal. You do not need to add the width of the frame.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • Availability can be different for each mesh combination. Please note that not all combinations of these 2 variables exist.
  • Check the “mesh classification” tab for more information on thread diameter, mesh opening, fabric thickness, ink volume, and more.

The screen is the core of screen printing, and its mesh is key to the print. Nowadays, synthetic fibres (polyester or nylon) and monofilaments are the most commonly used materials. They offer clear advantages due to their low thickness, high strength and stability, which will give you very uniform results.

  • Meshes are classified according to 2 parameters:
    • Mesh count: threads per cm/inch
    • Thread density: (HD (thick fibre), T (normal fibre), M (medium fibre) and S (light fibre).

The combination of these 2 parameters defines the different meshes. The higher the mesh count, the lighter the density. Mesh density determines the size of the openings, so the higher the density, the smaller the opening.

At Brildor, we classify the mesh using the number of threads per linear cm, with the letter P in front, indicating that it’s made of polyester. 

If you're used to other parameters to classify your screens, this conversion chart will help you find the frame you’re looking for:
