    16x16", 1600W would be plenty big. No need to get the fancy ones with foot pedals, digital displays, timers, etc. Just a basic on/off will do for now. Radiant/black-body sources are better than the...

    Textile printer here. We struggled with water-based inks on fabrics for a couple years before finally switching over to plastisol. So much more opaque, no dry-in, no spraying with water, you can...

    Is it ripping right at the edge? We had a batch of screens with too much glue applied to the mesh, it hardened into a razor-sharp crust that popped screens if you pushed on the print side of the mesh...

    I always found spray bottles too messy. If we have to leave the screen unflooded for any period of time, we'll wipe both sides with damp rags to clear out any ink that might otherwise dry in. Some...

    If you're just *slightly* out of reg, fix it blind: put your next sheet of paper down where you think it should go, do a test print. If it lines up, move your tabs. If not, try again.

    Underexposed emulsion sucks, it's really hard to remove in spots where there's already some ghosting.

    Pressure washer is key -- especially with water resistant emulsions -- but I sometimes end up...

    I hear you on the matte base -- we've had a couple of print runs where a black top coat ends up sticking. Generally we'll only see it when the inks start to dry out and get a bit gummier, but we've...

    You'd need AccuRIP or something similar if you wanted to get the most out of your all-black system. Settings for droplet density, halftones, etc etc. A good RIP and a good CIS are two things that you...

    We buy some gallons of Speedball acrylic (notably white), but most everything else is mixed from Matsui/R2O clear or matte base and pigments. We've had big problems air-curing opaque fabric WB inks...

    We use 305, or 280. Wouldn't use less than 230. 305 is no problem unless you're using thick opaque textile inks!

    Mesh / DPI suggestions:
    86 / 18
    110 / 22
    160 / 32
    230 / 46
    280 / 56
    305 / 61

    Maybe try using a rich black so all your cartridges get used equally. And get a CIS, they're worth the money!

    When you were washing out, did you spray both sides of the screen? If you're not exposing long enough, there'll be a thin layer of not-fully-cured emulsion on both sides.

    Did you stretch your own screens? We've only seen moire patterns take on crazy curves if our mesh isn't stretched evenly; the curving lines of the pattern are following the weave of the mesh.

    They're great on paper. We went the opposite way for fabric; printing water-based on fabric is a fucking nightmare, especially on long runs or with opaque inks. Babying the ink really kills...

    French paper isn't worth the cost to get it here, in my opinion. We mostly print on Stonehenge from Curry's, although we've been trying out some Rives and Canson papers lately.

    I gotta say, we have a 4-station 6-color carousel and we don't use a loader/unloader when printing t-shirts.

    Sure, it gets the work done slightly faster, but you're doubling/tripling your wages...

    Inkjet films are great to draw on, but costly. Nice way to make use of scraps tho.
