Frequently Asked Questions: Screen Printing with Vinyl

Can I reuse my screen?
Yes, you can use the same screen to make as many prints of one design as you need. Once you are done, immediately remove the adhesive vinyl and wash your screen with water. After your screen is dry, it is ready to use again for your next project! Here more information about How to Clean Your Speedball Screen.
Why is ink bleeding around the edges of my design?
Ink bleeding is usually a sign of too much ink going through the screen. The process is a balance of getting enough ink to cover your design but not too much ink. This takes some practice to get the feel for what works for you. I suggest trying on a scrap piece of fabric or old t-shirts until you get the hang of it.
