1/8" but can differ slightly depending on the material you're printing onto and the type of ink you're using.

The tension of your screen is also a factor. If you use "really tight" screens, I would set the off contact using a quarter (25 cents) in each coner of the pallet and set the off contact so the mesh just touches the coin.

The distance your printing will be a factor too. the shorter the less you need the farther the more you need....
