Screen Exposure in 2-3 Business Days
I expose screens for for local pickup only (currently curbside pickup) as I do not ship, where I try to keep all sizes and meshes listed below in stock. I will follow up to confirm timing after order is submitted. After you've read through the 3 steps, feel free to give a call with any questions at (303) 321-7101.
Screen Drop Off: if I am not here or after hours there is a grey storage bench by the front door that you can put screens in. Please make sure you have your name on the screens and confirm by phone or email you dropped off.
Review File Specs
Please make sure files are sized to 100% final exposure/printing size.
File Type: export or save as PDF, JPG, AI, PNG, PSD, EPS
File DPI: if it is not a vector image, it needs to be 300dpi at 100% printing size.
File Dimensions: must be within the size specified for the screen you are exposing and take into account an approximate .25"-.5" margin on all 4 sides.
Color Space: solid black – no greytones – anything that is black will be exposed to become the stencil to print the ink, meaning the black becomes your ink color.
Line Thickness: in order to guarantee good exposure, all lines should be at least 1pt in thickness. At 300dpi, 1pt = around 5 pixels.
Image Rights: please review the image rights policy as it applies to screen prep.
Entrance & Parking
The main entrance is located on the west side of the building, accessible through the alley. PLEASE NOTE: Alley entrance is only accessible from Ellsworth, between Fox and Galapago. Look for the big sign!
There are 3 spots available plus a 15 minute drop off/pick up spot. If they are full you can also street park and walk down the alley.
