Q: When printing, not enough ink is laying down in all areas of the print and if I print another pass, too much ink lays down in other areas. What am I doing wrong?
A: There are a few factors that contribute to ink not laying down evenly. The first could be how you're holding the squeegee and applying pressure. If your hands are too close together on the squeegee, then that's where you're really going to lay down the most amount of ink. Simple fix is to move your hands out more to the edge of the squeegee. Another cause is having the image area too close to the edge of the frame. The closer to the frame you get on the mesh, the higher the tension is. Due to the tension difference from the middle of the screen to the outer edges of the frame, more ink will be laid down in the center than at the edges. Other causes could be warped frames or crooked off contact.
