    Default 70 LPI on a 305 count screen--am I dreaming?

    Math wise it seems possible, but I'm printing out the seps and those dots be TINY! Anyone have any luck with hi-res process printing by hand?

    65 seems the maximum - you'd need some strong vacuum table-fu. You also venture into serious moire problems as well.

    Screen printing at higher than 55lpi is retarded unless you expect the person viewing the print to be looking at it from a distance of 6 inches away. Application and use are the most overlooked factors in line screen selection.

    actaully there are alot of shops running UV at 133lpi and it looks damn good.

    should be said that they are running this on presses that cost well over 300k maybe as much as a million for a 5 or 6 color inline press.
