    The transfer function in photoshop is very useful to really dial in your dot gain. You have to be doing output to a postscript device to access it, but you can transfer different tone values to make...

    I only have experience with solvent inks with a shit-ton of flattener added, but a 180 was more than low enough to get shit-white prints on richlite, similar to chalkboard-finish. The finish seals...

    If you're in a big city, wait a for an old manual cutter, 30" blade. Dirt cheap and safer/less hassle than a hydraulic cutter. Make sure it's got some good blades with it, new ones are expensive....

    I have printed on gloss coated, matte coated and uncoated card with no problems with 9700, even with lots of overprinting and heavy ink deposits. Very strange problem.

    Really? 2 runs of 300 pulls is not the craziest. There are horror stories on here. For me the worst was 1000 five colour LP covers 1-up.

    More off contact to prevent sticking can be a double-edged sword: it will make you lay down more ink, so curling problems after the fact will be exacerbated.

    And the prints aren't distorted somehow, they match the first sep perfectly? A rogue screen is just shrinking your stencil or some shit? Maybe this should be on Zeitgeist or whatever,

    Sure doesn't make much sense. There are no signs on the screen of the vacuum having been weak, like detail lost in the areas that are distorted?

    Have you lined up the positives with each other to see if there is any distortion in them?

    fyi, to get an even exposure the lights need to be placed at a distance from your screen 1.5x the diagonal of the image you're trying to print.

    I started by exposing with 100w incandescent bulbs with speedball diazo. I was only doing small images (maybe 8"x8" max) and my exposure was about 45m with 2 bulbs six inches from the glass. Metres...

    The one I used was Image Mate DZ 343. Never done a run larger than 200, though, so I really don't know how it stacks up. I'm also not sure of differences in ink/discharge agent formulations. I was...

    If your ink is breaking down your emulsion, exposure won't help I don't think. Discharge is a very aggressive ink, and if you were printing with underexposed emulsion (a stencil in which small...

    If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    There is a certain lattitude in exposure, but I believe the fundamental (of photopolymer at least) is that it cross-links in a chemical reaction to UV energy. Once...

    The shitty $60 pressure washer I bought at Canadian Tyre 4 years ago died today. At $15 per year I think I will chance another. I bet I reclaim 8 screens a week on average.
