I had a look at your text, for starters you have condensed your text to the point of almost no return.
(I have not messed with the text dimensions at all, it is strait up Schmale Jonisch)
Also you have used what it looks like a slab serif font, when printed offset it works fine but silk screen at small size in a huge area of flat colour, not good, you either have to have a huge amount of patience or be VERY good at what you do to make this work.
(Well, I printed it and I didn't really have a problem with the little text as I expected to. The problem area proved to be the guy's halftone head. Halfway through the run, however, I had to bust into some emergency ink that contained a considerable amount of extender/transparent base and the halftone printed without a hitch.)
Also what thread screen are you using? make sure its 90t or higher. I can only suggest try to redo the text on the design as a sans serif font and little bigger.Just change the small text though, this will also help with your visual heirachy as well. Try thickening your ink a little. Try to raise the screen up a little off from your table when you have it down. This may help a bit. But I dont know what your setup is or what inks your using. Also as a note blue is a bugger to have as large fields of colour depending on the ink amd it is the one colour which takes the longest to dry.
