My daily rant - not directed at this post's author, just beginner slickscreamers who insist on cutting corners for the sake of a few cents then wonder why it doesn't work......
I am counting screens from a quart of emulsion on these GP calendars I'm printing(see thread). so far I am at 11x 4'x4' (16 sq ft) and have about 1/3 left - so that's about 10 cents a sq ft. ($25/qt, 240 sq ft yield)
I never understand why people cheap out on emulsion. the cost of doing one screen over (in time, reclaiming, stress, etc) negates any gain between a premium dual cure and some bargain stuff that has a narrow exposure latitiude, and what do you save? 2-4 cents a sq. ft?
I don't for one second buy the arguement "I don't have any money, I can't afford 'pro' stuff" Stop drinking and smoking and buying coffee and cell phone time for a week or two and you can buy everything you need to print posters for years.
