    Default CordTone

    I've heard a couple folks mention that the stuff is kind of a pain to print on. What is the deal with it? Does ink not fill the valleys, or is the fiber of the paper just not overly acceptive to inks? I'm thinking of using this stuff for some old-schoolish auto show posters, but don't have any actual swatches to reference.

    Default cordtone question

    bump

    Anyone have any experience screen printing onto Mr. French Cordtone paper? I like the way it looks, but wonder if its texture presents a problem for even ink coverage?

    Thanks...

    I haven't printed on it.
    Is it "ribbed"?
    If so, it can be a pain.

    Ink doesn't want to fill the valleys, or fills them unevenly.
    This is the case with any paper with an embossed finish.

    Thanks for the info. Didn't realize it was textured/ribbed when I ordered it. Sounds like I should send it back.
