Spirit Tattoo Stencil Paper
Product Code: TTP-Spirit and TTP-Spirit-CTN
Spirit paper is the genuine Tattoo Spirit Stencil Paper for use by professionals with long lasting results.
Spirit stencil sheets contains 4 layers:
1 - Cover sheet to which the design is applied
2 - Brown protective sheet - removed prior to use (copy spirit uses white paper)
3 - Carbon sheet
4 - Yellow backing paper
Warning - Beware Imitation Spirit Paper
A copy of genuine USA manufactured Spirit Stencil Paper is available on the market and does NOT perform the same as genuine USA Spirit Paper. It fades, doesn't last as long during tattooing and can not be used on 3M ThermlFax machines.
Both original and copy packs are printed the same and both list USA manufacture so looking at the carton is not the best way to check. Request to view a sample sheet from inside the pack first.
How to tell genuine USA and Chinese copy:
- Copy heading is white/ clear
- Genuine Spirit has a green strip in the heading (pictured left)
- Copy Spirit paper can be supplied in a plastic wrap inside the carton
- Genuine Spirit is loose packed
- Genuine spirit has a BROWN protective sheet
- Copy Spirit has a WHITE protective sheet

Triple Sheet with carbon and protective layer

An approved carrier must be used at all times with the machine to avoid jamming.
Remove the protective paper from 3 layered sheet and insert artwork, face up, behind the carbon sheet.
Turn the thermal copier on and feed the carrier into the machine at the required setting (see manual for machine setting details).
When the carrier begins to emerge from rear, hold/pull and support the carrier, then remove it from machine.
Open the carrier to remove your design and return carrier to the protective envelope immediately.

'Can the ScreenMaster mesh be re-used after a design has been imaged onto it? if so, how many times? how do you clean them and/or care for them to get longer use?'
The design can not be taken off the screen and the actual mesh re-used like traditional silk mesh, however the screen can be removed from the frame, stored and re-used later.
This gives you the added benefit over traditional silk in that your costs for creating the screen are not then wasted if you have to reuse the screen for a different design.
Screens are cleaned in cold tap water and then dry naturally. You can store them on the frame, off the frame rolled up or off the frame stored flat (in a manila folder is recommended).
ScreenMaster will image 6pt type and 1pt lines, plus half tones. The actual print result is limited onto fabrics by the weave of the fabric, as you will lose part of the design in the weave.
We don't recommend going below 14pt type as it just is too small and no one can read it from any distance - not many people get that up close and personal with your t-shirt.
Each screen is designed to last about 1,000 prints, however this will vary upon the surface you are printing.
If you use a rough calico material then you will receive about 700-900 prints.
Print onto a soft cotton or flannel and well over 1,500 should be expected.
When the 'quality lessons' it normally means the film on the back of the screen begins to break.
You can also prolong this by using Screen Masking Tape applied to the back of the screen before printing starts.
Using Screen Masking Tape you can increase your prints on rough materials by 20%-50%.
Yes screens are easily cleaned and stored for later use. You can either leave the screen on the frame or take it off and reuse the frame, storing the screen in a folder [or in a tube]. This means if you only print 200, you can store it and print another 200 next week/ month/ year.
Screens will store indefinitely as long as they are stored correctly - away from heat.
Another enquiry is cleaning solutions. I've never screen printed before. So each time I use a mesh stencil and set it up for a new shirt, do I have to clean it with a solution? If so is the solution environmentally friendly...as in if I'm in a hurry can I just toss it out my garage window into the garden without frying plants and flowers?
No, no, no - we don't touch ANY solvents or chemicals with this process, in either making the screen or cleaning.
The ScreenMaster mesh is supplied with the thermal film already coated on the back of the screen.
When we image the screen we burn away the film to expose the design.
When we have finished with the screen you can not get rid of the design, but you can of course clean it and store it for later use.
The advantage we have is you can take the screen on/off the frame so you can reuse the frame for another screen.
Inks are all water based so everything is just washed up in cold water in the sink - no hi-pressure hosing or washouts.
If you are in a hurry you clean the excess ink off the screen and throw the frame into a tub of water [where it can sit for ages] and this will stop the ink from drying in the holes and blocking the screen. If you are in a hurry and don't want the screen again then of course just bin it.
Store on the frame is best for the long term.
If you have to reuse the frame, take the screen off and store it flat in a manila folder along with a copy of your artwork and a sample print [so you know what colour it was printed with]. Store this in a filing cabinet/ box that is away from heat and does not get direct sunlight. This way they are flat and away from heat, but most importantly easily stored/ filed so you can find it again.
