- Aluminum frames do not warp when exposed to water, ensuring a flat frame for thousands of prints.
- White mesh helps emulsion expose faster, reducing time spent in the darkroom.
- A 86 mesh count is best for specialty printing (i.e. glitter or shimmer inks).
Looking for high-quality, pre-stretched, aluminum screens? You've come to the right place. Baselayr offers a vast selection of aluminum screens, varying in mesh count, frame size, and mesh color.
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.
PURPOSE OF 86 MESH COUNT
Mesh counts below 110 are most mainly used for specialty printing like glitter and shimmer inks. These inks have flakes, which can get caught in the mesh of a screen if your mesh count is too high, and none going onto the shirt itself. Glitter inks have larger, more obvious flakes to them, while shimmer inks will have smaller particles to give a more subtle look.
86 mesh is best for shimmer inks. Check out this blog to learn more about mesh counts and their uses.
