    I assume that shop-vac on the right supplies the suction? Vacs are a lot more convenient than spray mount.

    nothing. i just place the paper right onto the board butted against some strips of chipboard.

    if it sticks to the screen i just peeeel it off the screen. works everytime.

    sometimes gravity works in my favor, and when it does, I take advantage.

    that's a good-lookin' vac table though, Mark... do you have a rigged-up switch, or do you just use the one on the vac?

    huh. do you register and then tape the chipboard down?

    speaking of sticking to the screen. usually when that happens to me i get these "halos" of ink, the difference between an instant separation from the screen and the sticky part. sometimes they don't wear off when the ink's dried - like you can still see them. does that happen when you print sticks to the screen?

    by the way, you are weird. :P
