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.
Murakami S-Mesh has a thinner thread than its standard equivalent. This leads to more open area (opacity) while still leaving a thinner/softer print.
- Less squeegee pressure needed.
- Stronger base plate opacity.
- Softer Hand plastisol prints.
- More retained details in the print.
- Stonger color for discharge with more image detail.
- Higher mesh counts can be used with similar results to lower mesh counts.
- 45 and 55 line halftones can be imaged on 150LX and 180LX.
135S - Halftone Base Plates, Spot Color, HSA Inks, Discharge, Waterbase, Plastisol, 50 line halftones
150S - Same as 135S with the difference being 45 and 55 line halftones.

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.
- 2 Part Polyurethane Glue
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.
