    CP Tex is our day-to-day emulsion for WB inks.

    Exposes in 6-8 minutes on blacklight tubes, EXTREMELY water-resistant when properly exposed / hardened, pretty inexpensive. Also works fine for...

    At the end of the day, I think it's the base moreso than the pigment that makes the difference. We use the same CCI pigments in TW and Speedball base, and they have totally different hand feels....

    You mentioned three problems that can cause major issues: your ink is really watery, your off-contact is fucked, your squeegee is bent.

    Take a look at the underside of your screen after you flood....

    I don't measure it because I don't have time for that shit, but I aim for around 30:1 or 25:1. It really does take very, very, very little.

    My screens hang off the edge of the vac table when I put em lengthwise. It's no big deal, just put your off contact on the side rails. As long as you have enough lead space for your squeegee, you'll...

    Who's using ultra-high mesh counts?

    Almost all of our paper work is done on 305 mesh. We can print 8pt text on a 305 mesh without any problems, but I'm curious about the limits of the medium.

    Sefar offers 330, 355, and 380 mesh as...

    Tough, but can be done. Grab an 18" squeegee and clamp the screen on the short edge, you can push 16x22" floods all day. I pushed 130 of these without any missed corners:

    We use EasiSolv 500 and it strips the FUCK out of every emulsion we've ever used. Super concentrated too: why buy water?

    All the EasiWay stuff is great -- 701 ink remover is good for removing...

    Check the tech data sheet for your emulsion. If you're lucky, it lists the UV wavelength it's most sensitive to. For mine, this is Philips unfiltered blacklight tubes. Andy swears by Super Actinic...

    I was gonna suggest that, but figured it'd sound saucy.

    Works tho. Whenever we print business cards, side A curls like a bastard until we lay down side B.

    Try pre-racking/hanging your paper the day before you print.

    Thicker paper doesn't help much, I've had 130# stock do this.

    Stronger vac won't help, the paper expands when it gets wet and...

    We still have a bunch of fabric WB inks from before we knew better, and they all orange peel to some extent. Clear fanric base is even worse for it. You might be able to save the rest of the tub by...
