Typewriter Thermofax Screen (medium)

$10.00 USD
Purchase on Etsy
An awesome typewriter image for the writer in your life or anyone who appreciates a great retro image!

Great for t-shirts, tote bags, and anything else you can think of!

This is a thermofax screen, created with a thermofax machine which is an old photocopy technology. It uses ZERO chemicals to create the screen, is durable and super super easy to use.


1. The screen used is a 70 mesh.

2. Image size: 3.75” high 5” wide

3. The edges of the screen are sealed with silver duct tape. (Sorry, I no longer offer color duct
tape options.)

4. Learn how to use and care for your screens at Lynn’s (aka Fibra Artysta) YouTube channel:

5. This screen was designed by Lynn Krawczyk. (The image is copyrighted to designer.) Please visit her at:


IMPORTANT - I do NOT recommend using a rubber squeegee with your Thermofax Screen. This can lead to premature damage of the screen. Use a sponge brush or hard edged plastic scraper (like a plastic spackle "knife" from the hardware store). Use gentle pressure if you choose to use the plastic scraper.

1. Orders are filled and shipped once a week. Orders received by Friday will ship by the next Wednesday. (If you are purchasing a Your Image Here! screen, all details for your order need to be worked out by Thursday to be included in the Wednesday shipment.)

Policies PaymentI prefer paypal but will accept money orders as well. I'm sorry but I do not accept personal checks or cash.
Policies ShippingPLEASE NOTE MY FILLING / SHIPPING SCHEDULE: Orders will only be filled on Friday and shipped on Saturday. Orders placed by Wednesday will go out that week. This is due to my work schedule - thanks for understanding! 🙂

For U.S. customers:

Each listing has a shipping cost. Please note that since the screens are mailed in rigid flat mailers, they get package pricing for first class mail (their policy, not mine).

Anything that goes over 13oz automatically gets upgraded to priority mail shipping (again - their policy, not mine).

If you order a whole bunch of stuff and its going to get shipped all at once, then I'll figure out your shipping and your invoice will be adjusted accordingly. You get charged for mailing materials and actual shipping, there are no handling fees involved. So please be patient with me if I need to adjust your shipping costs to be sure that its fair to both of us.


For international customers:

I took my best guess at this one based on what is on the USPS site. Again, once your total amount of items have been purchased, I'll take a look at the actual weight and see if adjustments need to be made. I'm an honest gal so I won't charge you anything extra that doesn't need to be there and if I owe you money, you'll get that back too.
Policies RefundsThe only time I offer refunds on screens is if I've messed them up and since I'm pretty OCD about making sure it gets to you in excellent shape, the odds are super high that the mistake didn't happen on my end (which is not to say never and I'm good about admitting it).

Bear in mind that I duct tape the edges of the screens by hand and while I am very careful to make sure it looks as nice as humanly possible (note the "humanly" part), they may not be perfectly straight. This is not a defect, it does not effect the screen so its not grounds for a refund.

I will also pack the heck out of your screen so I've made every effort I can to get it to you safely. As much as I would like to, I can't give refunds if the post office gets overly frisky and damages the package.

HOWEVER, I want you to be totally happy with your purchase. If you are miserable and weeping and gnashing your teeth over the whole bit, convo me so we can talk things over. 🙂

The ready-to-print screens sold through the shop are for your personal use only. If you want to screen print items to sell, a custom screen with your own artwork is the perfect way to go and I'm happy to help you with that! 🙂
