    Matsui is what Ryonet's R2O line (and their previous eco-whatever line) of WB inks is made from. The matte base has fabric additives and can stay tacky on paper; clear base isn't so bad. Both work...

    We have a neoprene-topped exposure unit that fits our 20x24" t-shirt screens, but our 23x31" paper screens won't fit under the lid.

    Try searching for "grunge texture". Essentially you're just masking your image with white static.

    Or, if you have a ton of crappy screens with bad ghosting and ink locked in, just print out your...

    Hell, buy a membership.

    CD sleeves are tricky if they've already been folded and glued. We generally do not flood AT ALL when printing 'em.

    Reverse type is rarely your friend, especially with...

    Let's see some pictures.

    Is all the ink clearing your screen with your print stroke? We usually do a second stroke before flooding if the ink doesn't wanna leave the screen.

    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...
