The printing plate and its characteristics in the conventional printing techniques

have a significant impact on print quality and image appearance. In screen printing,

a weave of screen mesh i.e. a number of threads per cm, is the most important

characteristic of the printing plate, hence the most relevant factor which defines

printing quality. Print quality itself is a complex term that includes desired colour

reproduction and satisfactory reproduction of image elements. In this paper focus

was centred upon the reproduction of text and basic image elements lines and dot

structure when printing on non-absorbent and absorbent substrates with different

screen thread counts. The image element analysis led to the conclusion that using

mesh with higher thread count does not significantly improve the reproduction of

image elements. However, it is a very important parameter for text reproduction

since low thread count may result in poor readability.
