How to Choose the Right Screen Mesh
Higher mesh count have the finer threads and holes in the screen mesh. The size of the screen mesh is related with how detailed your image is and how thick the ink you are using is. If you have an image with extremely high detail, low count mesh is not usable, you have to choose higher count silk screen printing mesh. The fine lines or dots in the image will simply fall through the holes in the mesh not giving you a correct representation of what your image should be. Also if you are using a thinner ink, the ink will also flood through the larger holes and soak onto your shirt or substrate making your image blurry as the ink bleeds.
