looks rad andy!
Im pretty sure he's inking that texture in by hand.
So...coating the ink side of the screen?
Thank you much guys! Also richie, hit me up 915-740-5398 I'll be here all day. Got pretty pie-eyed last night but could stand to drink a few today.
What about ink formulation?
What are some of the methods you guys use to control dot gain when printing half tones?
thank you sirs
Does anyone know of any shops offering poster workshops in ATX during SXSW. I usually head there every year and want to bone up on my poster skills (I run a primarily Tshirt printing...
Yea plastisol won't do. If you wanna do water based maybe you could sand blast the glass first, give it a bit up something for the ink to hold onto. That or a solvent ink.
I've printed on plastic with nazdar 59000 and it worked fine. Just make sure you thin out the ink with the appropriate thinner and work in a well ventilated area. I definitely took a few years off my...
Andy, you're sanding down your paper with 300 grit? All of them? Light sanding? this is the first I hear of this, unless it's more gigposters humor... ha.
Alright guys I took all this shit into consideration, with much thanks as well. I found that thinning too much only makes it worse so I had to find a happy medium with water thinning at least. Near...
im pretty sure its popping off after the print stroke. You can see on the bottom of the screen the bleed of ink all around the stencil in the direction of my stroke only.
Right on, I'll try to bump it up to 1/4". I was running through 230 mesh. Thank you much Pedal. Do you use lower mesh with the flec?
Also, is this the same cause for the slight ghosting?
little more than an 8th inch. half fabric/half acrylic speedball white. the vac table is the kind you can attach to a station on your shirt press. Its solid though, good suction.
Before I begin, I apologize as i know this is a very noob question but i didn't even know what to search for on the archives.
At any rate, during a big run today, it looked like as my screen...
Is that dye ink? If so try the film ryonet sells. kinda pricey but I've never had a problem with it.
WB as has to get hotter and stay hotter than plastisol so I do 350 degrees at 10-15 seconds. Definitely want to use a teflon sheet to protect the shirt.
I usually run plastisol in my shop so all my equipment is geared towards that. However, when I do need to print waterbased shirts I run em through my conveyor first then throw em on the heat press...
Thank you guys so much! I pre-racked a two color to start and printed the first earlier today and pick up where i left off. I'll post the results tomorrow! Super helpful guys.
oh and alex! i bought a reservoir dogs print from y'all at flatstock this past year. I love it!
Thanks a lot guys! I'll post some pics up when I get outta class today. As far as AC goes its central and I don't control it...
As far as film goes Im pretty sure its solid, water proof film out of...
also what do you do use to seal em'?
so pre-rack and flood or just pre-rack 'ill do? you buy cougar straight from the mill?
I've been a long time lurker and finally decided to do it right and go premium!
At any rate, I've been running t-shirt printing for a few years now which is what keeps the lights on....
