    Didn't you try the free trial for AccuRip? There customer service was excellent when I needed them. They took control of my desktop remotely and walked me through my problem over conference call. ...

    Chromaline makes many really great emulsions. Why are you choosing that one?

    You're going to have a lot of other stuff going Fubar before you ever get to mesh stretch worries. You can always cut a squeegee down shorter but you cannot make one longer.

    Squeegee needs to be a minimum of 2" bigger than the biggest you intend to print. So 1" on either side of the image. A little bigger is easier IMO. 75 durometer work for most paper stocks unless...

    Frames are usually measured in outer dims so take off 3" to 4" for the frame (1.5" to 2"x2). The take off another 2" to 3" (3" is better) for your gutters x 2. So a 26x36 screen gets you a 16"x26"...

    Bigger screen will help. Just put your squeegee edge on a flat surface to see if it's bowed.
    Your flood should look completely even. Another cause of uneven flood can be under tensioned mesh.

    Don't use a lighter flood stroke. Use a hard flood stroke. The squeegee should sing as it goes over the mesh. Light (thick) floods are for when you want to print a lot of ink through the mesh. ...

    We use 230s and 195s for our paper work. Mostly we are printing on 100% cotton stock and the coverage with a more open mesh is a lot better and easier to deal with than a 305.

    If you are pulling by hand I wouldn't bother going higher than 305. We use 420 mesh but only with UV inks. We have a 355 around that I've tried printing WB inks by hand but it's too much of a...

    Yes I can see that. I just think there's a distinction between dyes and pigments. We use a lot of pigment with TW inks and they mix in very well. Pigments do not mix well in other brands of inks...

    I'm not sure that TW's pigment are acid-dyes. What makes you think they are? We use their concentrates (which are pigments) and dry artist pigment all the time.

    7000 series is just a smaller version tan the 9000 series. There's no real difference beside the width.
    The real question is which model of the 7000 series. Anything older than a 7600 I would not...

    You can try ammonia. You can also try using the inks itself, but yes there is a cleaner made special for vinyl inks.
    But really, unless you have good ventilation and you use properly rated...

    Vinyl, Latex and Acrylic are all different things. I've only encountered a true latex ink once and it cleaned up with ammonia. Vinyl inks clean up with their own solvent. Acrylic inks clean up...

    Inks that are too thin can do this as well. As well as substrates that aren't absorbent.

    If you look at the bottom of the screen right after you print but before you flood you may see lots of ink...

    Nice post Haven. I will add that all WB acryllics are Urethane base so your insight will apply to everyone's wb inks. The only other base besides urethane is epoxy and I've never seen that in a WB...
