Description

The image of a pine branch measures 6 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches. The screen includes additional space around the image for taping.

This screen can be used on fabric, paper, or other mixed media surfaces. Use with screen printing inks, textile paints or thickened dyes. If using on paper: fabric and paper absorb paint in different ways as do different types of paper. When using paper you will need to try different amounts and brands of paint with different viscosity to be sure you are getting the coverage you wish. You may need to use a different type of paint on paper than you would use on fabric to get the results you desire. The texture of the paper may also affect the results.

When you receive the screen, it will need to be duct taped on the edges before use. You can find a tutorial on taping on our blog at http://pgfiber2art.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_10.html. There is also a tutorial on How to Print at http://pgfiber2art.blogspot.com/2014/10/how-to-print-with-thermofax-screens.html.

There are more tutorials on taping and printing on the Internet. Here are a few:

Care of screens: When finished printing with a screen, immediately drop it in a pan of lukewarm water (kitty litter pans are perfect!) so the paint does not dry on the screen. Metallic paints will quickly clog a screen, so not letting the paint dry is especially important. I like to wash the screens right away (plain water is all that's needed); an old toothbrush or finger nail brush helps with cleanup. Dry them with an old towel and set aside with the plastic-coated side up to dry completely. Damp screens stacked on top of each other may stick together. Store flat (scrapbook paper storage boxes work great).

Shipping: Orders will be shipped on Saturday if received by Thursday of that week. Shipping for all U.S. orders will be a priority mail flat rate envelope. Orders to Canada and other international destinations will be sent 1st class international mail, which will cost less than the priority rates listed. The cost difference will be refunded after shipping. Multiple screens will ship for 1 price using a flat rate envelope. First class fees are determined by weight and destination.

FAQs

What is the largest size of my image can be on a small, medium, and large screen?
Small size is a maximum of 3.5 x 4 inches
Medium size is a maximum of 5 x 7 inches
Large size is a maximum of 7 x 9 inches
Any dimensions that fall between these maximums falls under the next size up.
Can you burn me a screen if the image has grey areas? Or if the image is in color? Images need to be high contrast black and white. Grey areas do not burn. If the image is in color, it needs to be converted to black and white. We will do this for an additional fee of $5.00; add the Photoshop Adjustments item to your shopping cart.
What type of paint can I use? Use paints formulated for textiles, or add a textile medium to acrylic craft paints. These paints will give your finished product a softer “hand”; non-textile paints would leave fabrics stiff. Of course, the intended purpose of your item should also be taken into consideration. It is less critical in a piece of wall art that will not be worn or washed. Some types of paint we use include: ProFab (made by prochemicalanddye.com), Speedball Fabric Printing Inks, Jacquard paints, Versatex paints (both Jacquard and Versatex are available from DharmaTrading.com), Simply Screen made by Plaid, and SoSoft made by DecoArt.
How do I send my image to you? You may send your image as a jpg file to PGFiber2Art@gmail.com
Can I send you my image via mail instead of electronically? The short answer is yes, if you want to send images via postal mail we can work with them. The long answer is the reason we prefer digital images. In order for an image to work with the thermofax machine, it has to contain carbon. That means drawings must be done with either carbon pencil or pen. Alternatively, a digital image must be printed with a laser printer or copy machine because the toner contains carbon. So if you send drawings, unless they are done with carbon, we would scan them so they can be printed digitally with a laser printer in order to make the screen.
Do you do the photo adjustments for me? Yes, we have an option in the Etsy shop to do an adjustment for you for a fee.
Can I send you something that is copyrighted by someone else? No, images must be in the public domain or your own work (photos, drawings, etc), or images that you own the copyright to.
What is the life/how many uses can you get from a screen? With proper care you should be able to pull hundreds of prints with your thermofax screen.
Do you give discounts? For multiple orders? Occasionally we offer specials to subscribers of our newsletter, previous customers, and Facebook followers.
How do I tell the size of my image in Photoshop or Phtoshop Elements? Under your image on the left it tells you at what percentage you are viewing the image and the dimensions. There is a dropdown menu that lets you choose “document dimensions” to see the size of your image. You could also see the dimensions by going to the Image menu, then Resize, which will show you the current dimensions.
To help with cost, can I put two smaller images on a medium or large screen? Yes, just be sure to leave enough room around both images to have space for cutting apart and adding the duct tape.
