Baselayr's Arsenal Screen Pack is an affordable way to upgrade your screen supplies. The screen pack includes five different mesh sizes (110-280 mesh), which enable you to expand the range of graphics you're able to properly expose and print.
The advantage of aluminum frames are the durability and longevity they retain. All aluminum frames are constructed of the highest grade aluminum and hand welded in the USA. Aluminum frames will not warp when exposed to water in a dip tank or washout sink. You'll have a flat frame through thousands of prints to come. Aluminum frames are also light weight which makes shipping less expensive.

- Aluminum frames do not warp when exposed to water, ensuring a flat frame for thousands of prints.
- Yellow mesh causes little to no light scatter, which maintains fine details of the design while white mesh helps emulsion expose faster.
- Investing in a screen pack with a range of mesh counts allows a printer to print a wide variety of designs.
PURPOSE OF EACH MESH COUNT
The two most standard mesh sizes are 110 and 158. A mesh count of 110 will lay down a fairly thick layer of ink. This mesh is great for block text letters and larger spot color designs. It’s also a recommended mesh for your underbase because you will only have to do one pass, which speeds up production. 158 mesh will lay down a moderate amount of ink, but offers more detail capability for your image.
Higher mesh screens, 196 mesh and above, are most often used for finer detail images and thinner inks. Graphic, discharge, and water-based inks should be printed through screens of this mesh size. The higher mesh count helps to keep the thinner inks from flooding onto your substrate. If you would like to get a softer hand feel to your plastisol prints, these higher mesh counts can help as well. While your plastisol prints may feel softer, you might sacrifice the opacity of the ink by using a higher mesh count.
