Which Squeegee is best for Screen Printing


What is a squeegee?

A squeegee is used in screen printing for pushing ink through a mesh screen. There are few different types of inks such as plastisol ink, water-based ink and discharge ink that need different squeegees to push ink through the mesh. I will be going into depth on types of inks in another post. Squeegees are used for automatic screen printing machines (M&R Auto) and manual machines . We decide what type of squeegee to use by its colour and it’s hardness which is measured with a durometer.
