Welcome to dickblick
These flash dry blockouts in convenient pen applicators are for pinhole and general screen repair. Spotting pinholes and repairing minor screen breakdowns has never been easier.
Blockout Pens replace masking tape as the quick fix for jobs in progress. Blocked out pinholes stand up to repeated screen wipings. Three color-coded pens are available, to meet different needs.
Note — Always perform suitability and compatibility tests with the ink you are using before use in actual production.

Blockout Pen Saves Lives!
from Gasport, NY
I purchased the fast drying "green" blockout pen. I've used it twice while screen printing now. It deals with those pesky pinholes and blowouts you get while printing sometimes. I left the ink right on the screen both times. Second opportunity, I put the screen on the light table and repaired a few pinholes and was back to printing in five minutes WITHOUT BREAKING DOWN AND CLEANING THE SCREEN! Love it. This pen saved a lot of work.
I have trouble getting it to work
You're supposed to press down and pump the bulb to make the filler come out. I can't do that with one hand and no matter how hard I pressed (and remember I'm pressing on a silkscreen trying to fill in a hole) I couldn't get the filler to come out. I finally ended up pushing in the ball with a paper clip and getting the filler on that and using it to transfer it to fill my pinholes - It would have been easier to just use a bottle of filler and a paintbrush. I was disappointed in how this worked - it's a great idea but doesn't really do what I needed. I haven't compared it to any others though so maybe this is par for the course?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

You need this
If you're going to screen-print, you should buy one of these. Period. This is a must-have. You can achieve fine detail and use it to do last-minute patch jobs. Read the descriptions to pick the one that's best for your purpose, but at least get one. You won't regret it.
Fast, easy coverage

We had ordered these pens previously from another supplier and had trouble with the pens leaking or drying out. As soon as my employees tested these they were impressed with the higher quality. We will definitely be buying them from Blick from now on!
