Screen Exposure is currently available, but as I am working limited hours, it may take up to 3-4 business days once your order is finalized. Once order is submitted I will follow up to confirm timing.
PLEASE NOTE: As a 1-person studio I am following Social Distancing Requirements and all health and safety recommendations. You may enter the studio to pick-up screen but masks are required 100%. I can also leave outside the door if you are not following current safety recommendations.
Screen exposure in 3- 4 business days.
I expose screens for for local pickup only as I do not ship, where I try to keep all sizes and meshes listed below in stock.
After you've read through the 3 steps, feel free to give a call with any questions at (303) 321-7101.
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.
If you are dropping off screens I will call to coordinate a time for drop off since I am not available 100% of the time due to printing and workshops. Thanks!
