If your screen edges are sharp on your design, try pushing the ink without a flood. Make sure you clear the screen - you may need some additional downwards pressure. A girl friend of mine had a hard time clearing the screen when she tried.
Thanks for responding. So I just lower the screen (without flooding) and pull the ink onto the shirt? Do I only pull once? If I lift and it's not good enough coverage do I lower it back and try again or flash and then try again?
