Use the Manual Starter Kit to achieve the absolute smoothest prints you've ever accomplished on a Manual Press!

You may have noticed that as soon as you finish laying down an underbase and the mesh releases its contact with the substrate, it pulls up on the fibers of the garment. That's called fibrillation. Printing colors on top of a fibrillated shirt greatly reduces the resolution, detail, and smoothness of your final print. You can fix this problem by using this Manual Roller Squeegee after the flash to matte down the fibers. Printing colors on top of this newly hard surface will bring out the detail of your final prints and significantly increase their smoothness (hand feel).

    We bought this kit after being frustrated with fibrillation on sweatshirts and losing many of them to rough finishes. Now, adding the smoothing Step after a nice flash resolved all our issues and we churned out some smooth feeling T-shirts. Their PTFE sheets are ultra smooth - unlike the ones you buy online or screen print shop. The roller squeegee applies the right pressure for flattening. I wish they offered this on 20x24 frame. But the larger one worked just fine for us.
