HOW MANY COLOURS DO YOU WANT TO PRINT ON A T-SHIRT? YOU WILL NEED A CAROUSEL (rotating) SCREEN PRINTER TO PRINT 2 OR MORE COLOURS.

  1. Printing two or more colours on a T-shirt or fabric requires a carousel screen printer.
  2. You will need a screen, squeegee and ink per colour.
  3. You cannot register fabric in the same place for the next colour as the fabric will stretch / distort and be out of alignment if you remove it off the board.
  4. Remember that you need to use Board Glue / table adhesive / permanently tacky glue on the T-shirt board / pallet to hold the T-shirt fabric in place during the entire printing process.
  5. Add more Board Glue when necessary as the “fluff” off the fabric will make the glue less tacky / weak.
  6. Apply a thin layer of Board Glue with a spatula or credit card. Take off any high spots. Dry the glue until it is ‘permanently tacky”. You do not want the glue to come off in the inside of the T-shirt.
