    Default Pin Registration

    Hello,
    I am trying to build a screen printing table and would like more info on using the pin registration method. I live in the northeast and humidity is a big issue when it comes to registering paper. We have tried a DIY vacuum table and it wasn't quite right. I would love to know more about pin registration. Where to buy the pins/punches/layout etc...I read that strawberry luna uses this method and the registration on her prints always looks really great. Thanks for any info.

    I have heard of pin registration for screens but not for paper, now that I think about it that would be awesome, maybe mount a three ring binder clip to the edge of your press and use a traditional 3 hole punch, hmmmm my mind is spinning, but that could be the coffee
    or the speed

    you need to go take a fine art printmaking course from someone who learned to print in college and never set foot in a commercial print shop.

    They'll learn you pin reg real good.

    Or talk to Luba. She makes it work.

    there are plenty of people that print in your area without pin registration. just pre-rack your paper overnight and that should help with the paper instability issue. also using a good stable 100lb cover stock such as boise cascade makes will also help.

    If your paper is changing size because of humidity or ink, pin registration is just going to make your life difficult... what happens if your holes and pins no longer line up? And it's not going to replace a vac table. You still need something to hold your paper down so it doesn't stick to the screen.

    so wait, is pin registration that registration system where you attach little tabs to each sheet of paper in the same place, and then attach corresponding "bumps" to your press bed that line up with previously mentioned tabs?

    fucking hate THAT system.
