A 23×31 aluminum frame with an 86 mesh screen is commonly used in screen printing for projects that require moderate ink deposition and good ink flow. The mesh count of 86 indicates that there are 86 threads per linear inch, making it suitable for applications where a medium level of detail is required. Here are specific applications for a 23×31 aluminum frame with an 86 mesh screen in screen printing with metallic inks:

  1. Apparel and Fashion: Screen printing with metallic inks on clothing items like t-shirts, sweatshirts, and fashion garments can add a touch of shine and glamour to the designs.
  2. Promotional Items: Using metallic inks with an 86 mesh screen can create eye-catching promotional products like tote bags, keychains, and accessories, perfect for marketing and branding purposes.
  3. Invitations and Event Materials: Metallic inks can add a touch of sophistication and luxury to printed invitations, greeting cards, and event materials, making them ideal for weddings, parties, and special occasions.
  4. Customized Gifts: For personalized gifts that require a touch of shimmer and shine, such as custom-printed mugs, phone cases, and gift items.
  5. Craft and Hobby Projects: The 86 mesh screen with metallic inks is ideal for various craft and DIY projects, where a metallic finish is desired to enhance the visual appeal.
  6. Packaging and Labels: Metallic inks are used to create eye-catching labels, packaging designs, and product branding with a luxurious metallic sheen.

It’s important to note that using metallic inks requires special considerations and adjustments in the printing process. The metallic particles in the ink can affect ink flow and screen tension, so printers need to optimize the settings to achieve the desired results. Additionally, metallic inks may have a textured or reflective finish, so it’s essential to consider the specific application and garment/fabric type to ensure the best adhesion and durability.

Overall, the 23×31 size is a standard dimension for screen printing frames, providing a good printing area for various projects. The 86 mesh screen strikes a balance between ink flow and moderate detail, making it a suitable choice for printing with specialty inks like metallic inks to create eye-catching designs on a variety of items.
