Note: This list is incomplete, you can help the forums by contributing to it!

The above threads are not necessarily definitive - the current "printing over seams" thread is more of a placeholder for example, I'm sure there are other great threads on the topic. So if you have better threads that answer the above questions, feel free to post those too.

We want a few of the best threads on each topic, so when better examples are found we can replace the weaker ones with those.

Dear T shirters. I was curious to know how long can I have the emulsion sit on my silk screen before I apply the transparency and the light and have it burn???? Also do I need to apply something to the bottom of the frame when I'm burning the image onto the screen so the screen won't stick to the bottom of what it is resting on.

No! The emulsion needs to be completely dried to be able to burn your image on it. Also you need a black solid background on the opposite side to burn the design! C'mon man! lol

Curious; I wonder if anyone has thought of using a laser to burn tiny holes into a sheet (plastic, Mylar, some paper varieties) in order to make an instant perfectly aligned "silk" screen for printing? If there is such a product I would be interested.

Is There anywhere that I can see what's the percentage on people that like colors, designs and words on tee shirts?

Good advice for screenprinting on Digital Camo shirts?? When you put down the ELT black underlayment do you still need to put special ink as top layers. Putting white ink on these shirts??
