Tips: How to choose mesh?

If you are new to the screen printing process, determining polyster mesh count can be a puzzling and un-scientific procedure - often for more qualified printers it is well thought-out as more of an experienced art form. It is a significant factor in determining the amount of Mesh printing material ink that will be deposited in addition to the quantity of detail the screen can hold.

The Mesh printing material size is considered by how many threads are there in per square inch. For instance, an 86 mesh screen has 86 threads per square inch. The larger the mesh count, better are the holes in the screen letting in finer detail but also decreases the quantity of ink you can deposit. The size of the mesh also depends on how thick the ink you are using is. How detailed your image is also a prime factor in the mesh count selection (for Screen printing materials)

If you have a design with quite high detail, a lower mesh screen won't be able to hold the fine lines or dots in the image and they will merely not show up resulting in a lack of detail in the completed product. Conversely, if you are planning to print a thicker ink (such as white) even though it is too high of a screen mesh, hardly any ink will print through the mesh as the holes are too minute.

Thus, choosing the right mesh will help you get hold of the right materials used in screen printing.
