    Default Sharpie on Tansparency

    If I draw straight on a transparency sheet with a sharpie, will that create a dark enough line to burn a screen without spottiness?

    as one who has never screenprinted, i'd say i don't know.

    but it likely would as sharpies are pretty opaque.

    no, it won't work. You need a litho-paque pen.

    No. If you hold it up to a bright light, you can see it is transparent. Any positive that is transparent is shit for screening, and will be the cause of exposure grief. It has to block the light. Other than red knife cut film, which you can see through but light won't go through.(rubylith, amberlith, etc)

    What works?

    Litho opaque marker as mentioned (available at graphic arts suppliers)
    Rapidograph or similar tech pen
    India ink done with brush
    heavy litho crayon
    ripped paper
    rubylith
    litho film
    linotronic output
    PMT film on stat camera
    'specialized' inkjet film from a 1440 or higher printer
    laser on vellum (depends on machine and material)
    oyo or xante or similar thermal imagesetters

    if the problem is no computer or wanting to avoid mr. computer you could sharpie on paper and photocopy onto transparencies.

    you might need two copies since the copier toner is also not entirely opaque
