Screen Sizes

Postby dddoug » Sat Jan 28, 2017 1:55 am

Hi Everybody

I am new to screen printing and I am going to make some screens. I will be printing on paper mainly A3 and A2 sizes.
How much bigger than the paper area should I make the screens? I realise I must tape up the screens so that will take
up some of the screen area - should I just add the tape width on all 4 sides to my A3/A2 size or is it more complicated
than that? I would appreciate any help - I will be printing on paper, not T-shirts

many thanks

Doug

Thanks for that mate, I wasn't sure and didn't want to make the screens and then find they were too small
