Screen Printing Tape - Blue Blockout vs Split Tape

  • At some point, every screen printer finds a need for tape on their mesh screens. In this video, we cover Blue Blockout vs Split Tape.

    In most instances printers use masking tape to tape up their screens or to block pin holes. However, with masking tape comes a struggle of peeling it off.

    We suggest using either Blue Blockout Tape, or Split Tape.

    Split Tape comes with a sticky half and on the other half has adhesive strips alternating with non-adhesive spaces. This makes it easier to peel. It is simple to use as well! First measure out a strip, and cut it. Lay the full adhesive half down on the mesh of the screen, and the half that alternates on the frame.
