    Yeah, printing that kind of detail can be challenging, especially if its done by hand. Some shops don't want to deal with it. That was obviously printed by someone who knows what they're doing. You...

    Golden makes an acrylic gloss additive that I like. Its the only one I've ever tried, but it works good. Experiment with the ratio.

    "There has been some success with 75 lpi with a 305 screen. But there have been a lot of failures as well"

    75 lpi is really high. It can be done, but it takes a lot of variables being exact. 35-55...

    The textile Blick inks print fine on paper. I usually add gloss additive to the black so the finish doesn't look so chalky. Mainly print with Speedball acrylic, but Blick stuff works in a pinch.

    I'm with Fiona on this one. No way should you be paying more than $5.50 a shirt. A blank retail tri-blend costs over $20. Charging $20 a shirt and paying a designer $500, still allows you $13.50 in...

    Try resizing your image, then halftoning at 45 LPI. Should print on a 230 fine. Do not resize your original seps!! Also, those angles could be tweaked a bit. Y = 22, M = 52, C = 82, K = 112. That's...
