Ink Pullback

Ink Pull Back

When I print my shirt, some of the ink pulls back up with the screen.

This could be caused by a couple of things. When you pull your squeegee remember to push down firmly but not enough to bend the rubber blade and your motion is smooth. This ensures that the proper amount of ink needed for your image is deposited onto your shirt. Also make sure your mesh count and squeegee is the right one for the job. If your screen mesh is too high, this would cause less ink to pass through, but the printer will be trying to push it through, thus blurring out the image. Make sure that garment is tacked down well on the platen.
