I have an image that is black, 50% black, and 25% black. I want to print this with halftones to keep screen costs down (and to avoid mixing ink).

My highest mesh is 196 (my 230 ripped on me). Is that going to be good enough to get the halftone?

Do you have any advice for washing out the halftone?

It is a fairly large area that the grays cover and they are just big blocks of color.

Thanks.

divide the mesh cound by 5 and that will give you the lpi you should use....so for a 196 mesh screen I would use a 35 lpi...as far as washing out the screen , as long as you expose correctly you should not have a problem washing out the halftones......dont use high pressure....

I have used 45 LPI on 196 screens with good results. You'll need to print with a hard squeegee 70 durometer or higher, and use even consistent pressure when you print.
