Screen Printing Emulsions New Orleans
Our screen printing emulsions are extremely high quality, easy to apply to the screen, and virtually pinhole free. For screen printers in New Orleans who use a lot of water based inks, we highly recommend our Zim International’s screen printing emulsions. If you work mainly with plastisol and occasionally print with water based inks, Zim Rapid Cote Emulsion is a great choice. If faster exposure times are desired and you only work with plastisol or solvent inks, Zim Dual Cure Emulsion will be the right screen printing emulsion for you.

Plastisol ink provides a less soft hand than water based inks, but are the most commonly used type of ink in the screen printing industry.

Your squeegee should always be at least 2″ wider than the design you are printing, but no wider than your platen.

Cleaning lint and fuzz off a pallet can be a real pain, but with pallet tape you simply pull it off once the job is complete, and then reapply for the next job.
