    I recently screen printed a book on text weight paper and it turned out great. Sure they curled, but I took them to the merry ole offset shop and their folder flattened all of the sheets down. Best bonus ever.

    We use Cougar 100lb cover Natural with

    Ryonet Enviroline - beautiful, silky, takes a day or two to dry, the black is really nice
    Speedball - chalky looking but dries quick (andy diesel gots the hook up on it)
    House Paint - leaves a weird cracky look, use with flotrol, works in a pinch
    Art Supply Store Acrylic - its sorta ok and whatever, better than house paint

    And then sometimes we just mix all that stuff together.

    We is satisfied most of the times

    (Also, if you have a ton of ink up on your paper, its gonna be a little bit curly or wavy. It is paper after all. .25" plywood never curls cos of ink)

    Awesome! Thanks for the replies, all. One follow-up: what does it mean to "Pre-rack" or "rack" the paper?

    put it on your drying racks for a few hours before you print.
    it will kind of "equalize" with the humidity in the air and curl less.

    TW, Speedball and I actually like Versatex on the 100 lb Cougar cover. There is a larger selection of colors in Versatex than Speedball at the local art store.
