Using heat transfer vinyl to make screen

Postby Fred-in-the-shed » Mon Aug 26, 2013 2:28 pm

Is it possible to use heat transfer textile vinyl to make a screen. I need a screen for a fairly simple design. I'm new to screen printing
and have a vinyl plotter but no exposure unit. Thanks

I wouldn't use heat transfer. You can use cheap calendered vinyl to make a stencil in an open screen. Cut in reverse, apply to garment side of screen, let it rip.

Thanks, but I need just one screen for a long run, the calendered vinyl method doesn't produce a durable screen.
