    This article answered my questions very well. I had many "AH HA!" moments. Things clicked as I read them. I am a returning silk screener from the 1980's doing fine art prints. I thought jumping in to T-Shirts would be a no-brainer for me, but textile is very different from printing on paper. I was having problems with a T-Shirt white ink on a red T. The design was a lot of white with detail red allowed to show through. I printed 10 shirts and they are usable, however I did have many of the problems discussed. I realized as I read that everything from coating the screen, to off contact, and to my stroke technique needs to be examined.

    Without this article I may have corrected one or two problems but surely would not have realized many other errors in my white on dark process (which means all my processes!) 

    Thank you for such a well written article. This is one of the reasons I chose Ryonet and will support Ryonet with my future purchases--awesome support.
