Action Engineering Manual Starter Kit


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). 

For instructions on using Roller Squeegees, watch our youtube video or inquire!
