If you would like to print your own images, send us your artwork and we will make you a custom screen! If you are uploading images, please order custom screens one at a time as each image needs an individual upload 'box'.
What size do I need?
Measure your image(s) to determine which size(s) to order.
|Image size ||Screen size |
|up to 6cm x 10cm ||Mini |
|up to 9cm x 18cm ||Small |
|up to 17cm x 24cm ||Medium |
|up to 25cm x 36cm ||Large |
If you are a beginner to screen printing, it is not recommended that you order a large screen. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
Frame or no frame?
Framed screens are easier to use and are the most popular choice. However, you can buy soft framed imaged mesh which you can use as it is. These come with a taped edge (useful if you are printing onto irregular surfaces).
Because of this edge, we do not recommend that you try to re-use old frames as it is not possible to stretch the mesh with the tape on the edge.
Please note it is not possible to supply blank mesh - nothing can pass through the mesh unless an image has been burned onto it.
- Images must be black and white (without shades of grey).
- Images must be positive ie the black lines / marks / text on your image are the parts that will print.
- Please note that images with large areas of SOLID BLACK are not suitable for thermofax screens.
- Digital images should be high resolution - ideally 300dpi. Our preferred formats are PDF and JPEG. Please avoid using the following formats - .doc and .docx (Word documents), .png and .pages as they do not always 'travel' well. Sometimes we can't open files in these formats but even if we can the images or text may look different on our screens to original design.
- If you wish your image to print at a certain size and are not sure if your image is correct, please crop tightly to the positive image before sending so that we can assess/adjust the size if necessary.
- If you prefer to post your image(s) to us, they should be sent as photocopies (please do not send original artwork).
- We can take a look at your image(s) before you order - see Contact Us for further details. We will email you to let you know if it is suitable and suggest minor changes if necessary.
- Copyright - if you wish to use artwork that is not your own, please make sure that it is copyright free or that you have permission to use it.
- Further information about suitable imagery can be found in Thermo-FAQs.
