when printing on the manual press i dont always pull the ink towards me with the squegee...sometimes i push it...sometimes i step to the right or left side of the pallet and pull the ink sideways...i do this for different reasons depending on the job. sometimes its for registration purposes and sometimes im able to get the ink to clear the screen with fewer swipes if i go from different derictions/angles. this is a trick i figured out on my own and i dont know if other screen printers do the same thing. im very versatile in the way i print. my boss sometimes gives me crap about it...sometimes my carpal tunnel flares up worse...but i do whatever it takes to make the print look the best that i can. the old man i learned from pulls the ink towards him like 99% of the time... Does anyone else print like i do or do most of u pull the ink towards u most of the time???
