    Jim, I'm running a poster with TW inks on cougar right now- on the 130 LB (or is it 140), white. It's really great paper, very stiff and very dense and very smooth. It takes screen really well, and the TW ink has always done very well on it for me.

    TW is to speedball like acid is to marijuana.

    Chuck Tibbetts just died recently, he was the 'T'. Industry pioneer. When your plane catches on fire, you can thank Chuck and TW for not choking immediatley to death

    I went to a local paper seller and I think I like the 100 lb cougar paper. I think I am going to use TW inks because they are water based, less toxic, and were recommended by professionals on this board.

    I like to use white paper. It's really nice and comes with nothing on it so it allows YOU to fill it up. I enjoy filling it with drawings of dicks...

    I think they are actually PH neutralized. Any paper that is made from alpha-celluous (trees) is acidic by default and they neutralize it in good paper. Not quite the same thing as acid free which would be a rag paper (cotton).

    OK, that was a bad analogy.

    TW is to Speedball like Nepalese temple ball hash is to marijuana.

    And always sand your paper down before printing. this opens up the surface. 300 wet/dry
