How to Use a Screen Printing Task Template
Creating a screen printing task list can help ensure that all necessary steps are taken to produce quality prints. To get started, follow these four steps:
1. Gather all necessary materials
Before you can start screen printing, you need to gather all the necessary materials and supplies. This includes screen printing equipment, inks, and other supplies such as tape, paper, and stencils.
Create tasks in ClickUp to make sure you have all the necessary materials and supplies on hand.
2. Set up the equipment
Once you have all the necessary materials, it’s time to set up the screen printing equipment. This includes setting up the frame, stretching the mesh onto the frame, and attaching the squeegee to the frame.
Create a Gantt Chart in ClickUp to track the progress of each step of the setup.
3. Prepare the design
Now that the equipment is set up, it’s time to prepare the design. This includes tracing the design onto the screen, cutting out the areas that will be printed, and applying the emulsion to the screen.
Create custom fields in ClickUp to track the progress of each step of the design preparation.
4. Print and dry the design
Once the design is prepared, it’s time to print and dry the design. This involves printing the design onto the garment, allowing it to dry, and then curing it with heat.
Create a Board view in ClickUp to monitor the progress of the printing and drying of the design.
