Tips for Screen Printing Custom Artwork: Bonus Tip
Create Your Own Gang Sheet
Gang sheets are a fast and easy way to save money when buying screen printed transfers. If your custom image is small enough for gang sheets, send us your artwork and we will certainly make the gang sheet for you. However, if you would like to make your own gang sheet, here are a few tips on how to make the most of the “real estate” on each sheet.
- For smaller images, make sure that all line thicknesses and show-thru thicknesses meet the minimum requirements.
- All images on the sheet can be as close as you want. However, keep in mind that you have to cut apart your images. Don’t put them so close together that you are wasting time cutting out tightly close images. We recommend leaving a ½” spacing between all images that you will be cutting apart.
- The images don’t all have to be facing one direction. Rotate them based on their shape to fit as many as you can onto one sheet.
- Add as many different images as you would like to a gang sheet. They do not all have to be the same image.
