    Reversed cut vinyl on back the screen.

    Left ink on for 1 day, go to clean screen and the ink is nearly impossible to remove. Any tips or suggestions.

    It came of fairly good where the ink bled through, but where the vinyl was , totally different story! Seems to me might be ink type?

    yep, got to take it off asap. most press wash cleaners will clean it off with a little scrubbing with a nylon brush. It all depends on what product line you are using.

    What kind of ink?
    Vinyl ink is not the same as corro ink is not the same as plastisol.
    At any rate, immediate cleanup should always be number 1 priority, or at least returning the screen to a useable state!

    I'm not sure I understand what you're saying but maybe there was a reaction between the vinyl adhesive and the ink?

    Clean it off right away +1000

    Solvent and pressure wash. As already stated, in future remove and reclaim immediately after printing to avoid what you are experiencing now.
