Default How many times should I pull the ink over fabric?

I'm new to screen printing and have made and sold a few tees already. I'm using a red water based ink on a white shirt. I've only been pulling the ink through once but now I'm worried that it hasn't been enough and I'm starting to panic because I've sold a few already. Should I be pulling the ink through twice? Are the single pull shirts that I've already made flawed? Thank you

Default Re: How many times should I pull the ink over fabric?

First flood the screen with ink (pull forward) and then pull it back (pull backward) and make sure you're pulling backward with a good amount of pressure.

Your t-shirts should be just fine if cured (dried) correctly.

I would suggest pulling the ink through twice for a screens with small details.

It depends on many variables and it's hard to give a correct answer cause every situation is unique. If the print looks like you need pulling the ink through twice, then pull it through twice.

If your screens are good it's enough to pull it through once.
