Use Regular Filler to spot out pinholes on #screenprinting stencils after developing. For water based inks use a sensitised emulsion and re-expose the stencil. http://ow.ly/NsC230eoiG3 http://ow.ly/LqE630eoiG4

An angled inspection light is best for spotting out large #screenprinting stencils after developing. Any frame larger than 1m² is easier to inspect vertically than horizontally on a light box. http://ow.ly/KCNz30eoiFX http://ow.ly/EoAe30eoiFY

#screenprinting stencils can be dried either vertically or horizontally after developing. Vertical drying is only a problem if the screen is underexposed or has not been develoed completely. http://ow.ly/mMXN30eoiFS http://ow.ly/EvSL30eoiFT

It is best to leave a #screenprinting stencil for 24 hours after it has been developed. Do not be tempted to print the screen imediately after drying as it may take several hours for the screen to harden completely. http://ow.ly/kEBE30eoiFM http://ow.ly/4SXc30eoiFN

Do not use newspaper to dry off #screenprinting stencils after developing. It is almost impossible to remove paper fibres that can become embedded in the soft stencil surface.http://ow.ly/A1ba30ekCA5 http://ow.ly/qn8s30eoiFK

The maximum air temperature for drying #screenprinting stencils after developing is 45°C. Very high temperature drying may damage the stencil, warp the frame and even soften the adhesive. http://ow.ly/uvKh30eoiFH http://ow.ly/Ih1X30eoiFI

#screenprinting stencils must be thoroughly dried after developing. Do not be tempted to print the screen imediately after drying as it may take several hours for the screen to harden completely. http://ow.ly/9rRw30eoiFD http://ow.ly/RcEg30eoiFE

A soft #screenprinting stencil is often a sign of under exposure. If breakdown occurs during washout then this is often a sign that the stencil is underexposed. http://ow.ly/33PN30eoiFA http://ow.ly/FF1y30eoiFB

Do not pre-soak ultra thick #screenprinting stencils before developing. Although tempting, a pre-soak will cause the stencil to soften which can lead to damage during washout. http://ow.ly/IilJ30eoiFv http://ow.ly/nnIR30eoiFw

Do not try and develop #screenprinting stencils from the squeegee side with a high pressure gun. Otherwise there is a high risk of blasting off the stencil. http://ow.ly/5uFl30eoiFs http://ow.ly/WJlU30eoiFt
