GSG Video Explores Screen Exposure

February 3, 2015

A free online video from GSG, Dallas, reviews the basics of screen exposure.

The taped seminar, shown above, takes viewers through the variables involved in achieving consistent, correct exposures — from equipment to emulsions, screen prep, washout and more. Titled “Screen Print 101: Chapter 9 Proper Exposure,” the video discusses the relationship of mesh, emulsion and stencil thickness to exposure time, as well as the importance of good coating techniques.

In addition to tools like exposure calculators, it explores topics like mesh bridging, edge definition and emulsion-over-mesh ratio. It also includes tips and techniques for addressing common problems, such as ghosting, sawtoothing, pinholes and stencil washout.
