Now that you've got your screen printing frames made, it's time to stretch the silk screen fabric. This is a project best done with 2 sets of hands, so grab a helper and lets get started! Silk Screen Fabric - I used 110 mesh (3yds will make about 26-30 frames) Staple Gun Hammer Xacto Knife or Box Cutter 1. Cut a piece of screen a few inches larger than your frame. 2. One person pulls the fabric taunt along one side of the frame while the other staples a straight line. 3. Now pulling tightly across the frame, staple along the opposite edge starting from the center and working your way out. 4. Pull the fabric towards one of the remaining sides and add 4-5 staples in the center. 5. Repeat on the opposite side with 4-5 staples in the center. 6. Work back and forth from one side to the other until both sides are stapled completely. 7. Lastly, stretch the fabric out diagonally from the corners and staple any remaining openings. 8. Tap in any raised staples, and then trim rim off the excess mesh with your knife. Remember - The screen needs to be VERY taunt. Be sure to pull tightly to remove all the ripples and bubbles in the mesh or you will not have a nice crisp print. In the end, I spent $26 to make 8 large screen printing frames, and have enough mesh left over to create at least 20 more. How awesome is that!? I also used this tutorial from Little Blue Boo to make a few tiny silk screen frames that I can use to screen print size tags into my shirts. Now I am curious, what design would you screen print first?
1. Is their such a product that will split screen a tv?
Vizio 120/240hz have it . Both POP and PIP. PIP has a small pic in the screen . POP is where the screen is split in half. Vizio is starting to blow all those pay for the name Tv's away. There is nothing that will do it for the inferior Tv's . Sorry :p.

3. The Art of Making: Hand-screen Printing
Like , hand-screen printing has been part of our process at Rebecca Atwood Designs since the very beginning. Rebecca printed some of the pillows in her first collection in her Brooklyn apartment. What makes a simple one-color pattern sing comes down to the details. The base fabric, the color, and how it's printed are all equally important. A bit of texture softens a pattern and when it's printed with dye the color binds to the fiber instead of sitting on top like it does with pigment. Hand-done processes make a difference, even if you can not quite put your finger one what makes it special. We believe in using our hands whenever possible. Screen printing means pushing dye over a screen where ink is impenetrable in certain areas to transfer a design. It is best used for patterns that are simple with few colors. When Rebecca designs a pattern to be screen printed she thinks about how it will translate on the fabric. As with most of her designs, the screen-printed fabrics begin in her sketchbook. Here she focuses on simplicity. Beautiful shapes and marks that have an effortless quality. After screen printing pillows for her first collection, Rebecca got in touch with our current screen printers in Rhode Island and a lasting partnership began. Our printers are a family owned and operated mill that has been around for over 75 years. They are truly craftsmen when it comes to hand-screen printing, with the ability to print and finish fabrics in many ways. Our printers can print with dye as well as ink. Dye lasts longer because it binds with fabric instead of sitting on top like ink, which can wear off over time. On top of this, it leaves a softer hand feel. There are times we've used ink when we want an opaque print that you can feel on the fabric-like our Spots pattern in White on Natural. While printing with ink is straightforward (what you see is what you get), dye requires a finishing process and there can be more color variation. To begin fabric is rolled out on long 50 yard tables. A large screen and squeegee, operated by two people, is used to transfer the dye across the screen onto the fabric. This method of table or flat bed printing uses hand pressure as opposed to machine pressure which results in slight variations throughout the fabrics. They print every other repeat down the long table to allow for drying time, then they will go back and print again in between the repeat. Sometimes, as with our Waves pattern, we use two screens for what could be a 1-color print to mimic a bleeding quality similar to the results of Rebecca's early printing techniques. As you can tell, it takes a lot of careful and time-consuming work to hand print even just one yard of our screen-printed fabrics. Because it is done by hand it will be slightly different and unique each time. We hope you enjoyed hearing about our screen printing process.
