Hi Guys,

I am very new to this caper and I am just working out the number of screens etc I wld need to start doing some home screen printing so I have two quick questions that are very novice. Firstly can you use the same screen for different colours ie I want to print a design in black on a white T and the same design in white on a purple T so can I use the same screen and just wash it or do I have to have two separate screens?

Secondly I am wanting to do one sized designs that fits all T-shirt sizes so I only need to make up one screen for each design. At the moment I am planning on making the designs about 12”x12” for circled logo type designs, do you think this would be alright for both adult male and female small – 2XL, or is it going to look to gigantic on the small females, I know its probably depends on personal taste but I thought Id see if anyones used a similar size before and can save me from learning its wrong the hard way!

Thanks all,

Yes, you can reuse the screen for different colors.

12 inches wide is usually the largest I go too. But for a circular design, I might go smaller to better accommodate female sizes. If it were me, I would probably go 10 inches, which is still a decent size even on Mens XXL . I would print out your design at 10 inches, 11, & 12 inches on paper, cut and place on a shirt to see how it would look.
