    Default help with another screenprinting story project

    Ok all you silk screenin' fools.... I just got an offer to do do a comparison report and story on the different ways of making of film positives - the different kinds available to screenprinters, and the results they can expect. This is going in the SGIA technical journal, so you won't get the glory of a front cover in ScreenPrinting magazine, but the results can also be posted here and on the API board for everyone's benefit.

    So here's the deal.

    I need 2 printers who use each of the following methods of making film (14 in total). I'll send you an AI file with some various graphic elements in it, you make some film on your equipment, (7"x9" max image) and send it back to me. I'll develop and print each one through the same screens/same ink/same material. They will then be sent to the SPTF labs for micro photography and image analysis. The results will form the basis of the story.

    I need to know your printer model and type, output resolution, the brand of film, and any tricks you use to make it. Also, the cost for the material you use.

    Categories: ( I need to know which brand of film you use, so I can have two different brands in each category)

    photocopy/copier

    laser

    inkjet small format (machine under 17" wide)

    inkjet large format (machine over 17" wide)

    economy thermal imagesetter (oyo, xante, etc)

    high end imagesetter (linotronic, agfa, etc)

    camera film

    If you are into doing this, send me an email ( andy@squeegeeville.com ) with your film type/brand, your output device, etc. I'll let you know who's selected,( the first 2 people in each category to respond, plus an alternate - you can provide more than one type of film if you have different printers or different film brands). You will need to answer some B/g questions, and I'll include everyone's names and websites in the article. Let me know if you are an SGIA member.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    I was just saying.

    I'm actually not sure when that time is and where that place is.

    I've just heard that.

    As far as I can tell that seemed like a good time for kidding.
