Summary

Economies are required in silk screen sign making. One such economy with large signs can come in creating artwork that eliminates the need to connect all points accurately. Very careful registering means additional man-hours and increased labor costs. Another saving (in energy) comes in applying enamel over bisque and using only one firing. In making license plates, the white background enamel is first spray-applied and then dried. The silk screen screening paste is applied. After drying, both coats are fired.
