Stretched SC1 metal screen. Convex profile. Only suitable for two-arm machines. The screen dimensions indicated refer to the OUTER edge (i.e. including the frame).
What do we mean by an SC1 screen?
The SC1 screen, also called TL/0 by other producers, is traditionally the most used by screen printers in Italy and it has the appearance of an isosceles trapezium with equal, slightly convex sides, which the fabric is fixed to.
It measures approximately 30x35 mm. It's made of iron and the surface is treated with blue powder-based enamel.
How to send your file for screen printing
When preparing your file, follow these two easy steps:
1) The design needs to be in its actual print size (1:1)
2) Save the file as a jpg, tiff, pdf, ai, or eps.
If you are sending us a vectorial file, please make sure you've converted any text to outlines.
If you save the file as a .jpg, please ensure the resolution is 300 dpi.
Remember: 1 file -> 1 colour -> 1 screen
If you are having difficulty separating the colours, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How to choose the screen on the basis of the design.
To calculate the working area from the dimension of the design, do as follows:
The minimum dimensions required to obtain the appropriate working area on the basis of your design are:
(A) Squeegee direction 13 cm + (A) + 13 cm = Working area
(B) Other direction 10 cm + (B) + 10 cm = Working area

How to choose the mesh count based on the definition of the design.
For designs with line size of 0.4 mm: mesh count greater than 32T
For designs with line size of 0.3 mm: mesh count greater than 43T
For designs with line size of 0.2 mm: mesh count greater than 90T
After you've placed the order, you'll receive an e-mail confirming the exact dimensions of your design together with the sample file containing the design in your chosen screen. We'll await your final confirmation, before proceeding with processing your screen.
