hi guy's, having a few problems, im new to this.

when i coat my screen with ink and press it through onto the tshirt im getting problems, the ink is going through onto the tshirt fine, but when i raise the screen back up from the tshirt to go to the next tshirt, it sticks, the tshirt is sticking to the underside of the screen when it is raised, causing the image to get blured and shadow.

what can i do to stop this, think the plastisol ink with white spirit?

im a bit stuck and would appreciate some help.

dont put too much ink/ pressure when you print - also make sure you use spray tack - on the pallet - to make sure it does not go back up when you raise the screen
and NO.... adding mineral spirits will just cause more trouble

I agree. Also, make sure that you have some off-contact. 1/8 inch is good.
You don't want your screen to lay on the shirt. You want it to pop off after the squeegee pass.

thank you for your help, do you just rip the t shirt off afterwards???
Yes. Think of the spray adhesive as a post-it note. It just makes your platen tacky so the shirt does not lift as you print. Once done, the shirt is easily removable. The spray can last for a lot of shirts, so its not like you are spraying after each shirt.
