    Default Source for reg tabs?

    Hey-

    I know this was covered somewhere, but my search-fu is failing me.

    I'm tired of using my ghetto reg tabs. Anyone have a source for good ones?

    (Tuffy - was that you who had the hookup?)

    Also, in a related note, what are Stainless Steel tabs all about?

    Brg!

    I've been using paint swatches, hole-punched and triangle-cut. Over the course of 50 prints, they start to tear a little and I lose register (or I start eyeballing it, like, "Okay, a little more to the left...").

    I want some real ones.

    i make mine outta the same kinda styrene that they make the fake license plates (the onse with the dealer logo on em) from for new cars

    i think those metal tabs are lame, the last thing i want is my screen rubbing up against them every impression wearing away the screen. The guys at the Firehouse swear by them though.
