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.
PLEASE NOTE: If you need to drop off screens we will need to coordinate a time to make sure I am here to receive.
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.
