If your ink is too thick then you have to apply lots of pressure to get the ink through the screen. This excessive pressure spreads the ink and causes shadowed, uneven prints. If the ink is the right thickness (viscosity) you should be able to use medium pressure with one stroke and have a GREAT print. When printing on dark shirts you will find that excessive pressure drives the ink too deep into the garment and it actually isn't as bright as when you lighten up a little.

Some Facts about the Tshirt Printing Screen
For the purpose of this article we will assume you have a screen made using the correct mesh. No, 110 (43cm) monofilament doesn't work for every job. You need to use the correct mesh count to have a good print. Although mesh count is an entire topic, for now let's assume you are doing a simple three-color print on a light shirt. I would use a 160 (61cm) to 180 (70cm) monofilament mesh with either very well made wood frames that have been purchased with the fabric already attached (prestretched) OR I would use a metal retentionable screen that I had brought to the proper tension a couple of times to get the fabric very tight. I choose the 160 to 180 because I want to lay down a little less ink since this is a multi-color job AND in doing so I will not have to flash cure between colors. In fact I can print this job wet-ink-on-wet-ink. Trust me!
I would also have used a dual-cure photo polymer emulsion as my stencil since they can be used with only a single coat on each side and they hold up well, yet reclaim easily.
