    We just cut up old plastic fake credit cards from credit card offers you get in the mail, or old key cards for hotels and etc...

    Oh nice! Thanks for the link to those register tabs, I may them a try. old credit cards is smart too. I picked up some adhesive strips of magnet today to try out. Nothing to do with the magnetics, but theyre pretty thick, they stick strong and stay ruler-straight. Looking forward to testing it

    I use those to clean scrape ink off my squeegee or in my screen gutters.

    Same here, I somehow ended up with a shit load of them and use them for pretty much everything.

    I used to use those ones that Tuffy posted. They helped hold the paper down a bit before I built a vac table. They work well and you can reuse them over and over again. I bought a pack like four years ago and still have a couple left. But recently I've been sticking a few pieces of sign/sticker vinyl together to get the same thickness as whatever stock I'm printing on and then cutting them down to tabs with nice straight edges and then peeling the backing off the bottom and sticking them down. Works better than anything I've used so far. The downside to those "E" tabs from Lawson is that your squeegee bumps over them. You have to be careful how close your image is to the side of the paper closest to the reg tabs. With the vinyl method you don't have that problem. It also helps that at my day job I have an endless supply of vinyl scraps...

    vinyl sticker material like Aaron. 4 layers, leave the paper on the bottom, peel and stick/done. Anything sticking above the paper will eventually hole a screen, specially on an auto on long runs.
