    Is it safer to pull the print horizontal to minimize this even more? Seems the longer length pulls stretch lower-mesh screens further, right? My art is trapped nicely, but still need it pretty tight...

    Also any feedback on if I use a lower mesh count for the metallic ink than my first color, will this ruin my registration?

    If I was to purchase a new screen for this application that is large enough to work for this poster, should I go 110 or 156?

    Yeah, was assuming that was the case. I have some 156 screens I'll test with. Was kind of hoping that there was just a metallic ink with fine enough particulate that it could go through 230. :)

    Metallic ink questions

    I print with 230 mesh typically. I've tried using speedball metallics, but I think they're not letting enough particulate through to make the poster metallic.

    Is there a better mesh count I should...
  8. Perfect. Will do. thanks!

    If my off-contact and screen tension is the same for each color, should I assume it's paper expansion and try the transparent coat on each sheet as a first step?

    Thanks! will definitely do the half-and-half test. Man, that timing thing is brutal! First color was super long, so I adjust films for second colors accordingly and burnt those screens and finished...

    Wow! Mind blown! Never knew this about french having expanding issues and the trans floods helping and pre-racking helping paper acclimate. Excited to utilize these as my last few prints have caused...

    Andymac! You always blow my mind and answer all my questions! My first color keeps being way-longer than the actual film so that after printing first color I have to adjust for my second etc. I think...

    Thanks dude! All coding is minimal. I work at a web agency so I have lots of people to answer questions! ;) Handy.

    Wow. I know this sounds so basic and super-simple, but having never seen anyone print other than an auto-press for shirts and a few youtube videos, It's so easily over-looked. I had been scraping it...

    Oh man. I'm feeling like such a noob. I've been printing with Speedball water-based. Someone mentioned to me that I should be Using Speedball Acrylic Permanent instead.
    Thoughts?

    Wow. Great suggestions!
    By "thicker" for tension weight, is that higher or lower than 30?
    Thank you Andy.

    Haven't tried the 409, but I did use a spray bottle with plain water. I also bought some versatex retarder base. I think the "EXTENDER" that I thought was extending dry time is actualy meant to...

    What are you washing it out with? I was using a pressure washer in the past but it was too much and made it thin in some areas like in your pic. I looks like you hit it too hard there. I now just use...

    Wild. I've never heard of that idea. So you get it very slightly damp before putting any ink onto it to help keep the water in your ink? Rad. Thanks for the tip.
