The squeegee is an essential element in screen-printing. You use the squeegee to scrape ink across the screen, while applying downward pressure, causing ink to squeeze through any open spaces in the screen (i.e. your design) onto the printing surface.

All squeegees have a handle and a blade. The handle is, obviously, the part that you hold onto while pulling the squeegee across the screen. The blade refers to the flexible edge that makes contact with the screen in order to push the ink through. The higher the durometer, the less flexible the blade. Also important is the shape of the blade edge, either square or rounded. A rounded edge will push more ink through the screen than a square edge. The squeegee you choose will depend on several factors: the material printed on, personal preference, the quantity of prints to be made, and the inks used. Generally, flexible squeegees with rounded blade edges are used for fabric printing, while hard, square edged squeegees are for printing on paper, wood and other surfaces.

The wooden handled squeegees are available in 6", 8", 10", and 14" lengths and have a very rounded edge. The 9" squeegee has a plastic handle and a less rounded blade. When choosing a squeegee you want to be sure that the squeegee is about 2 inches shorter than the inside width of the screen you are printing. If your squeegee is too long it can bind against the screen frame and cause an uneven print.

All blades are Nitrile and 65 Durometer.

Available in: 6", 8", 9", 10", and 14"

Good Luck and Happy Printing!

I ordered one of you squeegees and I expected to see somthing like in the picture. Instead I got a squeegee that has a plastic handle shaped so it is very difficult to use (it's "T" shaped) and with a a thin (18") blad that is not even square: it is rounded. This has to be one of the most useless squeegees in existance. I'd return it but it's not worth the postage to return! Avoid it it is garbage!

I needed this size and it is much better than the "make do" item I was trying to "squeegee" with.
