Here are a few things you can do to ensure that your screen prints come out looking good on your t-shirt, just in case you're getting started on your own:

  1. Use high-quality screen printing ink: Make sure to use screen printing ink that is specifically designed for use on fabric, as it will have the right consistency and drying properties. Avoid using ink that is intended for use on paper, as it may not hold up well on fabric.

  2. Use high-resolution artwork: The quality of your screen print will depend in large part on the quality of the artwork you use. Make sure to use high-resolution artwork with clear, sharp lines and solid colors.

  3. Use a good-quality screen: The screen is an essential part of the screen printing process, as it holds the ink and transfers it to the fabric. Make sure to use a screen that is in good condition and has a fine mesh count (usually around 110-160 threads per inch).

  4. Follow proper screen printing techniques: Make sure to follow proper screen printing techniques, including using the right amount of pressure and allowing the ink to dry completely before removing the screen.

  5. Test your design before printing on a t-shirt: If possible, try printing your design on a piece of paper or fabric scrap before printing it on a t-shirt. This will give you a chance to see how the ink looks and make any necessary adjustments before committing to printing on a t-shirt.

By following these tips, you should be able to achieve good-quality screen prints on your t-shirts.
