How to Make Your Own Screen Printing Screens:
The MYOS from Screen Sensation is an incredible machine that enables you to design and make your own unique screen sprinting screens! Download the instruction manual here, and check out our top tips below!
Top Tip #1:
Only use black and white images to create your artwork. Your design needs to be completely opaque when printed onto acetate, as coloured designs will not block the light from the machine, therefore exposing the entire mesh. This will result in overexposure.
Top Tip #2:
If you are using a design that involves thin lines, test them before making the entire screen. This is to ensure that they will not be overexposed in the screen making process, and your full design won’t be ruined.
Top Tip #3:
For your first time using the machine, it may be a good idea to try testing what you can create. You don’t need to use a whole sheet of the mesh to do this. Simply cut down your mesh into small pieces and test through the machine as normal. This will allow you to experiment without wasting mesh.
Top Tip #4:
The maximum size for creating artwork to use with the original Screen Sensation® is 23cm/9” square. Designs for the Compact or 7 x 5 aperture should measure 15cm x 10cm/6” x 4”.
