Default Re: Screen printing 2 colors not sharp

I would print this using a 156 mesh screen. Depending on the coverage you get with your squeegee technique at the very least you should be able to print/flash/print the white followed by one hit of navy.

Make sure when you flood the print that you use just enough ink to fill the stencil area. You should still be able to see the design after flooding. You aren't icing a cake you are merely getting ink into the print area. Use a push stroke and you will get crisper prints. Less ink goes on with a push stroke so white on red will be a definite print/flash/print.

Good luck!
