    I don't think you can achieve the opacity needed to burn a screen with transparency film. I've experimented & it's pretty thin stuff. You could maybe use it to lay out vinyl letter on or stencils of a design & burn that way, but I don't think it'll do what you want.

    Try a blueprint shop - the can usually print a vellum or something for you from a pdf file for a few bucks.

    Or so I've been told.

    If anyone here ever has any need for actual film positives or negatives from a professional imagesetter, up to 19" X 25", get at me, and maybe we can strike a deal of some sort.

    We do pre-press.

    Trades?

    Considering there are still people on here using oil soaked paper for films, I thought the vellum thing was step in the right direction - and I think it's great that somebody's committed to doing it old school - it just seems like a workout.

    But I'm all theory. or mostly theory.

    Stick to percale.
