When I print, whether it be a 1 color job or 4 color job, my design starts to loose its crispyness and my prints start to blurr slightly after about 5-10 prints.
I believe there could be a multiple of problems and hopefully you can help me with this.
-Tension on my screens are not as tight as they should be. Last week i got 5 of my screens re meshed and it seemed to help the problem, but not completely.
-Could it be that my off contact is a bit to high? I have been reading the forums this morning and found that off contact should be around 1/8 of an inch high. I have been placing my screen about 2 fingers high from the t-shirt.
-I keep my stroke down to 1 push with the ink in front rolling over(I apply alot of pressure). I used to flood but felt like that was the problem causing the blurriness. Guess not?
-Could it be my squeegee? I havent bought a new squeegee in over 6-8 months.
-I am currently using Brown's Manual 6 color/6 station machine. Could it be the platens not being secured properly?
-I have attached the picture for reference.
Did any of you have this problem? If so, what are the appropriate steps I can take to get this problem fixed! It is causing me a big headache!
