Hunt The Moon - Budget Removable Hinged Board Based Silk Screen Printing Frames
Due to customer requests, we now make our frames with a removable hinged plywood base!
All our frames are made by hand, by us, in our printlab here in the UK.
We designed both the frames and the mesh-tensioning process with the goal of producing a sturdy product which is confidence inspiring, satisfying to use and offers the last word in value for money for the budget conscious printer.
We have personally tested our frames through thousands of print cycles in our lab to ensure its fitness for purpose.
We use removable pin hinges, with in house made alloy pins, so you can separate the frame from the board to rinse/wash etc!
The back board is high quality 5mm hardwood ply.
So, if you want to be creative without spending a fortune, these frames will serve you well.
The higher the t number, the greater amount of mesh lines per cm.
32t - Printing on fabric. Great for letting more ink through the screen. We use it a lot for lighter inks on darker fabrics.
43t - Printing on fabric. The most commonly used mesh count. Start here.
55t - Printing on fabric. There's no a lot of jobs you can't do on 43t, but when you have a little finer detail, 55t is great.
77t - Printing on fabric, card and paper. Finer detail designs.
90t - Printing on paper, card and occasionally fabric. Detail.
120t - Printing on paper, card and occasionally fabric. Super fine detail.
