    PRINTING INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Make a negative stencil-right facing image of the art to be screen printed. Include any alignment marks needed.
    2. Use the ‘heavy paper’ setting to ensure fusing of the toners and ’high resolution’ settings to ensure a continuous toner application. (if printing on a CMYW Printer - print as 100% magenta - CMYK Printer, print 100% black)
    3. Inspect the EXOSTENCIL Ⓡ Sheet for areas of damaged coating resulting from mishandling (these areas will create voids in the stencil).
    4. Load the EXOSTENCILⓇ Screen Prep Paper with the brown grid on the back so that the image will appear on the plain, unprinted side of the paper and with the short dimension feeding into the printer.
    APPLYING THE DRY ADHESIVE USING A HEAT PRESS:
    1. Position the yellow grid transfer sheet face down over the printed image.
    2. Position the image paper transfer sheet face up on the bottom platen of the pan.
    3. Press: 25 seconds at 190F/88C with low/medium pressure (20-40 psi/2-3 bar).
    4. Separate papers in a smooth, even motion while still hot, taking care to not burn fingers.


    TRANSFERRING TO THE SCREEN USING A HEAT PRESS:
    1. Place the 85 230 mesh count screen on the heat press, with the frame facing down.
    2. Position the image face down on the screen to ensure all images align. Keep the image about 1" from press edges for best adhesion.
    3. Press: 2 Minutes at 400F/204C, 60 psi/4 bar. If not using an OKI printer, start at 2 minutes at 350F/177C. Note: Obtaining desired adhesion may be challenging with some laser printers.
    4. Allow the transfer paper to cool by waiving the screen in an up and down motion.
    5. Peel the transfer paper away from the screen in one smooth motion.
    6. Block the edges as you would with any screen.
    7. Apply tape to spot repair any non-printed voids.
    8. Use the screen stencil as you would an emulsion stencil.


    "CHEMICAL FREE" SCREEN CLEANING
    Pressure wash with at least 1500 PSI (103 bar), ensuring that the stencil is removed from all pores. Some harmless staining may remain.
