Default Screen storage and Labeling

Hi All,

Just wondering how people store and label their screens, especially ones that they keep on permanently for repeat orders.

Do you keep them in racks with a label on the side stating Job/design/colour/mesh etc for so you can I.D and to find the screen you need as fast as possible, or do you have another way?

Also storage on screen you recycle, do you store these in individual mesh counts, or do you just all store all mesh counts together?

I'm just hoping to get input to help efficiency within our screen room, any advice welcome

Thanks

I don't store exposed screens. I store the film.
The syntax for naming the film must be established at the very beginning of your accounting system.


The question to ask is, "When necessary, what is the first piece of information needed, then 2nd and 3rd.?"
Customer name, date, order#, PO#, work number, graphic identifier. In the project file is the locators of the essential elements. The ID may look like: US Running/UM/2009-00712/US7

US7 is customer name = cabinet U and file 7.

Thanks for the reply, appreciate it.

We currently keep a mixture of exposed screens and film. We only keep the exposed ones as these are orders literally coming in 2/3 times a month so find it easier to have them ready to go when needed.

I've come up with a sticker to put on the frame of these screens so they can be found easily with info you've described such as - Customer/Design name/Pantone col/mesh etc. Will see how this works

we store used screens on shelving. tape on the edge says the name of the job or customer (or whatever would help us remember the job) & month/year last used. when we run out of clean screens, we can see the mesh number & what hasn't move in a year & pull the oldest for reclaiming. i also go thru periodically to cull ones i know aren't coming back (i.e. went out of business, new artwork)

We keep screens on jobs that we print monthly, about 30 jobs currently. Piece of tape on the screen with the job info. We have a Douthitt CTS now so we don't use film.
