What do I get when I order?
|Image Only||Image + Frame||Print Ready|
|Many people don’t mind printing without a frame. The mesh will curl so you need to stabilize it. Simply “bind” all four edges with duct tape and you are good to go.||I prefer using a frame because you can pick up the screen and move it with one hand. Order this if you would like to tape the mesh onto the frame yourself.||If you’d prefer to rip your screen out of the package and print immediately then order it mounted. I mount your screens with waterproof duct tape on BOTH SIDES of the frame. I find that the double sided sticky tape just doesn’t last as long for me. Also – with the tape on both sides you can print with your screen facing either way.|
CUSTOM IMAGED THERMOFAX SCREENS
Guidelines for sending your own artwork
- Order the number, configuration, and size of screen with the buttons above.
- E-Mail jpgs or pdf to email@example.com.
- Label your file with your name, a description, and the exact size you want the image (not including the white area around it) to print at. example: Kinard_bird_3.5×5.7
- Please send a high quality jpg or a pdf file. If you send me a 20kb image and ask for a large screen you will get nothing but a pixilated mess. For print quality a resolution of 300 dpi is best. Here is a tutorial for sizing your screens correctly. Please pay attention to the chart below for size limitations.
- Black and white images only please. Shades of gray don’t always turn out as you wish them to. Here is a tutorial for turning your doodle into a thermofax ready image. Try playing with the “THRESHOLD” filter in your digital editing program. Remember that if you make a mistake you an hit “ctrl Z” and it will undo what you just did. Here is a great Photoshop Elements Tutorial to help you with the process of turning a photo into a screen.
- I can do your Photoshop work for you for a fee – please inquire.
- You can also snail-mail your design with a printed order form and a check. All marks on the paper will show up on the screen so be careful to look for dots and specs.
- Please keep each design within the size limit for each screen: small 3 x 4, medium 4 x 7, large 7 x 9.5
- Please send only original or copyright free artwork.
