Screen Printing on Press with Monarch Vivid Mixing System Colors:
- Prepare your screens by coating them with emulsion suitable for plastisol inks. Choose a mesh count appropriate for the level of detail in your design.
- Set up your screen printing press and load the screens onto the appropriate print heads. Ensure proper alignment for multi-color designs.
- Place the garment on the printing platen, ensuring it is flat and securely positioned.
- Stir the VIVID LB ink thoroughly before use to achieve consistent color and texture.
- Use a squeegee with a 70° – 80° durometer for optimal ink application.
- Flood the screen with ink and ensure it fully covers the design area.
- Lower the screen onto the garment and apply even pressure as you pull the squeegee across the screen in a smooth, fluid motion.
- Lift the screen carefully to reveal the printed design. Repeat the process for each color in your design, ensuring proper registration.
- After printing, transport the garment to the conveyor dryer for curing.
- Set the conveyor dryer temperature to 320 degrees Fahrenheit, the standard curing temperature for VIVID LB colors. Ensure the garment remains inside the dryer for at least a minute and a half to achieve complete curing and optimal durability.

To ensure the longevity and optimal performance of Monarch Vivid LB Inks, it is essential to follow proper storage guidelines:
Room Temperature Storage: Store the ink containers in a cool and dry environment at room temperature. Avoid exposing the ink to extreme temperatures, such as freezing or high heat, as this can negatively impact the ink’s consistency and printing properties. Avoid Direct Sunlight: Keep the ink away from direct sunlight or strong UV light sources. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause the ink to gel in the container and lead to undesirable changes in consistency. Avoid Warm Temperatures: Monarch Vivid LB Inks are low-cure inks, and exposure to warmer temperatures can cause gelling, making it challenging to print or even ruin the product. Prevent storing the ink in areas prone to excessive heat. Proper Sealing: Always ensure that the ink containers are tightly sealed after each use. This prevents air and contaminants from entering the containers, maintaining the ink’s quality and preventing premature drying or thickening. Regular Inspection: Periodically check the ink containers for any signs of spoilage, contamination, or change in consistency. If any abnormalities are detected, refrain from using the ink and contact the manufacturer or supplier for assistance. By following these storage instructions, you can prolong the shelf life of Monarch Vivid LB Inks and maintain their smooth texture and printing properties, ensuring exceptional results for your screen printing projects. Remember, proper ink storage is essential for achieving consistent and high-quality prints.
Note: Always follow safety guidelines and wear appropriate protective gear when working with plastisol ink and using conveyor dryers. Proper ventilation in the printing area is essential to minimize exposure to fumes.
Before proceeding with the printing process, it is crucial to perform a test on a sample garment using all inks from the Monarch Vivid LB Blending System. Testing the inks on a sample garment ensures that the color remains consistent during the curing process and in the days following printing.
