  1. Problem with screen sticking briefly to poster paper, leaving a mark

    I am new to screen printing my posters. Still trying to get a hang of it.

    I am printing an 18 x 24 poster. At the top is a large colored area.

    My problem is the screen briefly sticks to the...
  2. Where can I get Screen Boss screen sealang calk?

    I used Screen Boss screen sealant calk around the sides of my screens. It is time to redo some screens and I have some new screens and the old place that I ordered from Screenprintingsuperstore.com...
  3. Should I trim off the registration marks or leave them?

    On my first couple runs of posters, I sucked at registration. I will probably recycle most those posters because of embarrassment. A few of them look almost presentable, but if you look at the...
  4. Can I touch up a film positive with a sharpie?

    Hi there,
    I would like to add a bit more trapping to a bottom layer of color. Instead of having another film positive made, could I just take a sharpie and draw an outline around those shapes? I...

    Louis,
    They will not add your name. Only Emek's
    There are several people there that are HUGE fans of Emek. Emek gets preferential treatment there as you can clearly see. Even on the first poster...

    Here is my advice: Don't do free posters unless it is to help out a buddy that is in a local band. Or some kind of not for profit charity event. The promoters that are having you do a poster for...
  7. Know any one who can fix a Fibar semi auto press?

    Anybody here, or anybody know someone that can tune up an old Filbar press? A friend of mine got pretty good size one, and it operates, but we need help getting it set up so that the floodbar floods...
  8. Thanks for the advice. I covered up the large...

    Thanks for the advice. I covered up the large frame using two blankets, and quickly carried it into a large dark closet. I don't have a de-humidifier yet, but it should be pretty dry and more of a...
  9. In this cold weather, how long do you think it will take for Autosol 7000 to dry

    I just applied emulsion to my first screen this evening. and it is laying flat on some boxes in my garage. I am using Autosol 7000 dual cure emulsion. It isn't frigid cold out there. But probably in...
  10. Special caulk for sealing inside corners of screens.

    A few weeks ago, I found a website that sold special caulk for pumping into the corners of the screen frames where the mesh meets the frame. Like it was some kind of replacement for that tape that...

    No I have not read the Newman Frame Guidlines. I looked on Google and have not found them yet. You don't happen to have a link do you?
    Thanks

    Ok, I am going for another attempt at stretching a large screen. On the first attempt I was stupid and went to tight. I thought more was better. There goes 50 bucks.

    On my second attempt, I tried...

    I found a company that will make 51 x 56 aluminum frames for a little under a hundred bucks each. But it turns out the size is only 1.5 x 1.5 with an 1/8th inch wall. My concern is that that this...

    Yea, at $75 to $100, how long do you want each design to take? Two to three hours? From concept to tight pencils, inks, scanning, coloring, back and forth proofs, final changes, That would have to...

    Ok, but any real world examples of a shady gig poster artist getting caught bootlegging? There isn't any risk of me ever bootlegging posters. My posters suck.
  16. That mesh is so tight the squeegie on my semi...

    That mesh is so tight the squeegie on my semi automatic press rides up from the pressure on the back of the stroke, and doesn't make good hard contact with the table bed. I would have to fabricate a...

    Yea, when I put it on the glass it is at zero. When I put it on really tight areas of the screen, it goes all the way around past the 40 and 50 and 0 and to stops at 7.
    Thanks
  18. Ok this is my first screen stretch, and I don't...

    Ok this is my first screen stretch, and I don't think it went too well. I did not tear the corners, or anything, but I think I overstreched it because my tension meter is off the charts over most the...

    I am just curious what the most trouble an artist has gotten in for bootlegging posters. (selling without permission) I am sure with the thousands of artists on this site, somebody has a story they...

    at about 7:36. This is the stretcher that I have.

    I am softening the corners...
  21. What tension should I stretch my screen? 230 51"x56"

    I am streching my first ever screen today. It is 230 mesh. The mesh info says 7-230 / 48D

    The outside diameter of the wood frame is 51" x 56" So it is kind of big.

    I noticed you commented about having a 9600 and a 9800 for printing film positives (and mostly use your 9600). I have a 9800 Epson. I have not tried printing a film...

    That is what I am going to do as well. And I spoke to a sales rep that sells Accurip and Black Max. And he said that it is not putting down 6 or 8 times more black ink. Each cartridge is putting down...
