    Default Printing on butcherpaper?

    Should I consider buying a roll of butcherpaper for screen printing posters?

    I see that everyone loves Cougar 100lb. cover, and I want to try that. But I need to print 30"x40". I don't know if Cougar or any of the other typical flat stock papers come in these wide sizes?

    Butcher paper seems a little light. You surely can screen print on it but I think the amount of ink going down on a 30"x40" sheet would for sure bring some warping issues. If you want large heavy paper, I would contact a paper supplier like (xpedx in the states) or something similar and inquire about mother sheets (the large sheets that other sizes get cut from).

    Butcher Paper - Uline
    Kraft Paper Sheets - Uline

    I use the Kraft paper, a bit of warping but not bad for the price.

    We print one Kraft paper all the time. Give it a shot.
    I once printed a poster run on tar paper for roofing. Looked awesome and weather proof to boot.
