Your image, pre-burned on a high quality aluminum frame, ready to print! Our 18"x20" screens have a 10"x12" Image Area, and are great for printers using smaller table top presses or no press at all. If a larger image is needed, please view our larger screens. Please note the artwork uploader will be on the order confirmation after checkout.
The standard emulsion we use on our pre-burned screens holds up extremely well to plastisol, water based, and discharge inks. If you are using solvent, enamel or uv inks, please choose the option for HXT emulsion instead of TX-D.

Please refer to our artwork requirements found here.
- Which mesh count is right for me?

- How large can my image be?
Our 18"x20" screens have a max "Image Area" of 10"x12". This is the total space available for your artwork to fit in to,
and should be the canvas size of the artwork you upload with your order.
- Can I fit multiple images on my screen?
Absolutely! You can place
as many images as you want in the allotted "Image Area" for your screen size. Just
keep in mind that the more images you have burned on the screen, the
more taping you will have to do and the more difficult it will be to
- Why is the image area much smaller than the screen?
The screen dimensions include the actual frame, which consists of
1.5" walls. This means an 18"x20" screen actually has a 15"x17" inner dimension. Your image should be at least 2.5" away from these inner walls of the frame to allow room for your squeegee, ink, and areas of mesh that are too taught, which brings the max printable area of an 18"x20" screen down to 10"x12". These same basic principles apply to all other screen frame sizes.
