All frames are warranted through UPS, however, once the frame is out of its box or has been used by the customer the UPS warranty is voided. Any frame that includes permanent blockout and/or high tension is considered a customized frame. All customized frames are made to order, and are NOT guaranteed a refund for any damage made after use. If a refund is given, you, the customer, are responsible for return shipping and a 25% restock fee.
Glue is guaranteed not to peel for 90 days. Any use of harsh chemicals, labeled as a haze or stain remover, VOIDS all warranty within the 90-day period. These chemicals, if left standing on frames, will eat away at the glue. To avoid this, please rinse the frames thoroughly after the use of ANY chemical(s).
If you are receiving HIGH TENSION frames, these frames are significantly more delicate than our standard frames, please handle with extreme care. Once the frames are outside of the box we are NO LONGER RESPONSIBLE for any damages, including popping.
Why Spot Color Supply Frames??
- We "Only" use high quality Saati and Murakami mesh (No unknown house brands here!!)
The heart of every screen printing frame is the mesh it is stretched with. Just because mesh is labeled as low elongation doesn't mean it is true. Trust the leaders in our industry, Saati and Murakami have been manufacturing high tension, low-elongation mesh for many years.
- All frames are prepped using a Grunig G-Prep 320
In our quest to make the best pre-stretched frames available, we found frame preparation to be difficult to accomplish by hand. The factory bead blast on most frames is a less than perfect glue surface, and belt sanders/grinders gave inconsistent results. The Grunig G-Prep 320 was the answer. The rotating cutter leaves a consistent highly textured surface, perfect for frame glue adhesives.
- Standard tension is 28-30 newtons on all mesh counts.
High tension screens simply print better... Higher tension equals more open area and lower off contact. No name mesh wont cut it (We tried). This is yet another reason why we only use High Quality Saati and Murakami mesh. Frames are stretched to 28-30 newtons expecting them to settle around 23-25 newtons.
- High Tension is an available option. (32-34 newtons)
Are you a tension snob...? We have the frames for you!! Our equipment has been heavily modified to allow stretching to the manufacturers maximum tension levels. This results in even larger open area, lower off contact, and even faster prints.
- Multiple glue options (cyanoacrylate, and 2 part polyurethane)
Which should you choose??
Cyanoacrylate (CA Glue) is more affordable, and been used in the screen printing industry for years. CA Glues do tend to have less chemical resistance (especially in dip tanks), and the cured glue is brittle, resulting in popped frames at the edges.
2 Part Polyurethane glue is much more chemical resistant (Great for dip tanks), plus once cured it has a rubbery texture that is easier on mesh. Like many things in life you get what you pay for!!
- Permanent blockout is available
Tired of wasting time and money on tape? Try permanent blockout!! Our new and improved blockout is extremely chemical resistant, and adds an additional layer of protection to the frame adhesive. We then finish off with a bead of silicon around the inside edge. Just coat, burn, and its ready for the press.
*may add one day to production time*
- We make our own boxes
Yeah, it seems like an odd thing to brag about, but a tightly packed box becomes nearly UPS proof. In the years we have been open we have only had a hand full of frames pop in shipment due to this.
