    A good waterbased ink will leave no ink feel on the fabric. Many of the waterbased systems are similar to your idea of India ink, in that they use pigments to stain the fabric. This difference is...

    I agree that the artist really should do it. We are going with 0.20 per. It is 1200 pieces so I am not really looking forward to it. We are a busy shop and we don't have any interns right now. I...

    Hand Numbering

    What is a fair price for hand numbering posters for clients? I am talking about work where you are just the printer - not the designer/artist.

    I did a quick swipe of the Green Galaxy white ink on black paper. It is slightly more opaque than TW hi-hide and it does air dry… eventually.

    Still, Mike is right.

    It sounds crazy, but Poster...

    Just realized you were asking about using them on paper...

    Not sure about that. I think the colors would do well, but I have doubts about the white air drying fully. It is very thick and has some...

    We printed some of the white last week and I was pretty impressed.

    Our shop is exclusively waterbased and discharge, and it doesn't have the soft hand we are used to, but it is no where near as...

    We do a lot of long run water-based and discharge ink jobs. These inks are very aggressive on emulsion, and few things suck more than a screen breaking down in the middle of a job.

    We post-expose...

    Depending on the transparency of the magenta, the overprint will produce various shades of red. If the magenta is opaque, and the yellow is not heavily saturated, it may have very little effect. It...

    Size is going to make the biggest difference in price. Ours has a max image area of 25X38. You should be able to get a nice refurbished Saturn 2538 for 8-10 thousand. A lot of people have Cameos, and...

    We use Victory 30X40 for 18x24. They do a good job.

    That makes a lot of sense. We have a few things that were originally done in pencil, and the clients wanted to maintain that look. It has worked pretty well with traditional halftones, but the bolder...

    I guess by "gradient type" I meant, are there situations where you just flat out prefer the look of stochastic over traditional halftones?

    We do not have issues exposing or printing halftones,...

    Are there particular gradient types that you prefer stochastic? Also, any suggestions for settings? We use Accurip, and the default for stochastic is 150 microns with gamma at 1. Is this a good...

    We started doing a second washout of our screens. We do the washout after exposure as normal. Dry them. Post expose. Then wash them again to ensure there is no emulsion...

    Yeah. We were soaking both sides because one side didn't work.

    We are using a sharp 70/90/70 squeegee.

    I will try the "double washout" thing. We don't have these issues with any other ink. We...

    Yet Another Post about TW issues

    We are having major issues with TW clogging. Our screens are properly exposed, we are soaking the screens on both sides with 70/30 water/S-034 mixture, and have even added TW's retarder. We move very...

    That makes sense. The films do line up. We have certainly had printer feed issues before, but not this time. It seems that the most common answer is the sun. It is just strange to me because we put...

    Unexplainable weirdness

    Has anyone ever had film not line up with the image on screen after exposure?

    I am not talking about the "print" not lining up. I mean - if you place the film directly on the screen, the image on...

    Thanks, Jason. I have seen a couple pop up, but they are always gone before I get in touch with the seller. I guess I will just start checking it everyday.

    Where to buy Drying Racks

    We are looking to buy some new print drying racks. The dealer we are talking with is quoting us some crazy shipping/crating cost. Like $1000 shipping on a $1600 rack. CGS doesn't have any racks in...

    1/2" off-contact!?

    Does that sound crazy to anyone else?

    I would think your screens would have to be at like 15 newtons to even make contact from a 1/2" away!
