    Default Squeegeeless multicolor screen press


    Does not make any sense to me. Is it real?

    I'm guessing it didn't work so well since I've never heard of it before now. Thanks for posting this. My guess from all the vacuum dials and releases is that it sucked the ink through the screen and onto the substrate. I guess this would allow you to put different colors on the screen as they would get sucked through at the same time.

    Where did you find this?

    Anyone who has printed long enough with vacuum tables has probably noticed that sometimes the screen will get sucked down and transfer ink to the paper underneath before the print stroke. This happens when the lift is too low and the vacuum grabs the underside of the screen/stencil and pulls it down. I remember when I was a young guy reading stories in screenprinting magazine where people had adapted this to a 'squeegeeless' printing method. Maybe this was one of those.

    Just finishing proofing the English for chpt 7.1 and 7.2 in History of Screenprinting. 7.2 deals with the textile industry, some of the machines they invented/patented in the 1800s and 1900s are pretty amazing. It's never clear if they actually worked, but it always takes somebody to try, and try, and try, and then a machine/process is adapted for wider use.

    Fall this year. Just finished proofreading 7.1 (Serigraphy) and 7.2 (textiles) 7.3 left to go (ceramics)

    follow progress on http://www.facebook.com/HistoryOfScreenPrinting

    it will be available for public purchase from ST Publications, but there will only be approx 400 copies available to the public (300 German in Europe through Niggli), unless we find someone to sponsor a bigger press run.
