    I've handpulled through 380 mesh no problem, but the stock has to be dead smooth. Of course I have popeye forearms.

    Good job for a triple duro blade 70/90/70

    Rad. Thanks for the help gents. All super relevant.

    I gave up on printing a big image through 420 mesh and made something 7" wide. That helped. Normal pressure was fine, though stabby pressure was essential. Dead smooth stock is understatement. I had trouble printing on the smooth side of Rives BFK. Never though I'd want to calendar my own paper, but there it is.

    Printing small images through 420 mesh by hand was actually kind of nice. Dot gain was controllable, and a 105 lpi halftone caught nearly the full range.

    Not looking forward to going back to my waterbased shop. UV is so good...

    We've had really good look printing our uv ink on vinyl with 380s and 420s. I've never tried it by hand, but i don't imagine it'll be much more difficult than pulling plastisol through a 355.

    Uv is super fun, but it's also super expensive compared to waterbased ink.
