I have just been trying out my new Nazdar 2700 series inks with 230 white mesh screens. At work we only use plastisol inks for textiles, so printing on flatstock is new to me. I figured screen wash was universal so I tried using the CPS A6 screen wash pictured below, but it didn't work so well. I then tried using dish soap and water and it worked fairly well, but it left a light ghost layer of ink in the screen. I repeated the step, but the faint image still remains. Does this always happen with water based inks? Should I just use straight dish soap? It's not bad enough where the screen needs to be hazed or anything. Any suggestions?
Can you get as precise registration on flatstock with a vacuum table as you can on a T-shirt press working with textiles and spray adhesive?
Thanks in advance!
