    Well speaking as a person others outsource to, print quality is one thing. No you will never be able to match our print quality because that's what we devote ourselves to do and charge accordingly. ...

    They are practically giving inkjet printers away these days. For wider models just check craigslist or ebay.

    There is no film that comes on a 3" core. 3" cores are usually reserved for extra thick papers that do not roll well. There are plenty of films that come 42" and 44" wide though.

    Yes it's bad. It's ok in a pinch but you just blew through all the savings you will ever have vs film just with these tests.

    Just cut some paper for a quick fill on that film. We use craft paper for films for flats all the time.

    What bulbs are you using?

    Edit: LOL are you using oiled paper for all these "tests"?

    Also we dry our screens with just a dehumidifier. Our screens are pretty big and they are typically dry in 20 minutes. An 83 mesh takes an hour or more on the other hand. I don't like forced air...

    So to avoid drips there are two common practices. The easiest is to stop short of the end of the frame, like an inch short, tip the scoop back so the emulsion falls into the scoop, and finish dry. ...

    I just have to put this out there but the broken down screen you posted is poorly coated. The emulsion looks thick and uneven. It also looks like your scoop is too big for your screen if your...

    I was prone to kicking the rubber maid garbage cans back in the day. It didn't hurt to kick them and they kinda sprang back to form off of your foot giving them extra momentum. I got tired of clean...

    We've had color changes when doing very transparent colors during long runs. The die from the photo emulsion slowly migrates into the ink turning it green. This was a nightmare discovery when we...

    I had a similar thing happen where we mixed up 5 gallons of grey ink for a huge suite of prints that all had the same grey background. When we got to the 3rd of 23 editions we noticed that the grey...

    Check your floodbar for dings. If it's aluminum it's especially prone to getting dings and ripping screens.
    What kind of tape was it?

    I try not to print on black paper. It scuffs, the black rubs off on everything, the colors look like crap. I'd much rather print the black including borders. If we have to and the image will allow...

    You'll know when it's too much squeegee pressure when the leading edge looks bleedy. I wouldn't worry about too much flood pressure.

    Just use ink instead of glue. Start with a retarded water based ink and see how that works for you. Most likely it will be fine if you flock quickly. It helps to have a second pair of hands. If...

    The translucent film in the photo is for light diffusion. Generally any frosted poly carbonate will work fine for that purpose. Since you are making a model I would just cut out some frosted...

    Amateurs charge by the square inch. I charge by the pixel. This post alone costs more than your budget I'm afraid.

    Depends on the ratio. My guess is no. Red pigment is pretty strong and will most likely cancel out any major blacklight quality. You can add a little red to the fluorescent, but not the other way...
