    Default Squeegee Durometer

    I'm buying some new squeegees.

    I made it right up to the part where they asked 'what durometer do you need?' without looking like a total fool.

    So, for posters on mesh counts from 250-300, printing on fairly normal poster stock, what should I get?

    65/70?
    70/75?
    75/80?

    I really like to use 70's and 70/90/70. the triple durameters are fucking rad.

    Cool. I will look into the price of the triples.

    We've had the same old, dull squeegees since we started. I just got some money that I wasn't expecting, so I figure now is the time.

    yeah what that Andy guy sez. lower than that and you fold it over with your super strength or wear it out, go higher and the squirrels can't press hard enough to make good contact.

    I found the triple stuff wore out quicker.

    Seems the more expensive the 'rubber' the better. can you sharpen condoms and reuse them?

    Seems to bee ok with the air dry inks, but the UV wears the fuck outta the tripple durameter, tight prints though.

    Yes, i usually get 6 to 8 uses out of each condom.

    the lower durometers are good for ass slappin' without leaving marks.
