    Versatex, Speedball, Ryonet Enviroline which is repackaged Matsui? housepaint, tw graphics, pretty much whatever I can get my hands on. I seem to have more speedball than anything else these days.

    lay it on the rack to acclimatize to the humidity of the print room. If you just crack the package and start printing, the paper can change up to 1/16 or 1/8" as it absorbs or loses moisture, depending on the difference from the mill where it was packaged, and whatever is happening in your shop.

    If you print it without doing this, you risk it changing after the first colour dries and the paper resizes - you will find the second and subsequent colours won't match up

    We use Speedball for everything except black, which is sometimes TW, sometimes Speedball, oftentimes Jacquard, and most often a megamix of all of that stuff. But yeah, we haven't made the leap to TW yet. And we always pre-rack that isht now, which is especially crucial for the CMYK stuff.

    Been using all Jacquard so far. Speedball once or twice when I had to run out and grab a color. Just ordered some Ryonet R20 Black and White to try those.

    Will DEF try pre-racking paper. I am thinking this is what screwed up my prints on my first 4 color job a few weeks back. Good tip!

    I've been wanting to use the Jacquard on a 4 color poster being printed on French Paper, but I only have a few days to print a minimum of 75 and i'm worried about it not drying quickly. Can anyone suggest a good quality (not Speedball) ink to use with French Paper that ins't as expensive as TW? I'd just buy TW but I don't have an extra $300 for ink left in my budget. Any quick, helpful responses would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks

    Checked out your site to see what your work looked like being printed with speedball, but no pics of the actual printed posters. Either way, very nice selection of bands (many i listened to in high school/college) and very nice style.
