Colenso Screen Services offers an Industry leading screen stretching and stencil makingService. Our extremely competitive stretching service covers many different mesh and frame sizes. Frames are re-stretched with high quality mesh to customer specified and industry standard tensions. Unlike many companies, we have the ability to also re-mesh to any given tension. We recommend that you choose a yellow mesh if you are choosing a mesh count of over 61, as it exposes much better than white mesh in the higher counts because it blocks light conductivity through the threads, thus providing sharper detail. White mesh is more cost effective and works just as well on lower mesh counts. We do however offer both white and yellow mesh in a variety of different sizes.
With 4 separate stretching departments (Darkroom for pre-coated mesh, Industrial, Textile and Graphic) and an array of specialized screen stretching equipment that is manned by fully trained and experienced staff who work to the strictest quality procedures, we offer our customers the most comprehensive screen stretching service for all sectors of the screen printing industry.
