You're in Brooklyn, do you order TW, or do you get something local?
what do you think of the Holdens, from Standard Screen down by the holland tunnel?
their opaque stuff when you're printing on darker colors is insane.
but about the house paint - what IS the difference? can anyone say?
Non-archival / looks like shit over time
This right here sounds like a real, honest to goodness reason why housepaint might be a bad idea, because theres nothing you can do about it. Does anyone have experience with this? what does it do, chip off? fade?
We save these and use them over and over to print off on, then save them for wrapping paper - I have a lot of people get stuff from us, they end up putting the wrapping paper up on their wall.
I got my 13 year old little brother-in-law a card game that he wanted for his birthday and wrapped it in a newsprint test sheet that looked particularly cool...it had a few dozen layers of test prints built up on it. He was nearly as stoked about the wrapping as he was the game. He kept it to hang up in his room. It was cool.
The difference between printing with crap, and printing with real ink; is that you get to stop fucking around with all the stupid problems paint and shit ink gives you, and you can focus on real printing problems that aren't enhanced via shitty mediums.
