please help - how to sc.print yard paper signs?

Posted on Thu, 5 Jan 2006 at 14:22



Hello guys,

i'm trying to get some info on how to print paper yard signs,
like 2 sided outdoor paper, smooth glossy finish.
i used to print on coroplast so i know all the basics but

- i could not find a source where i can buy blank paper stock?
- does it come pre-cut to the size or on a roll and i'll have to cut it?
- What is the most common size of it and how much is the "good fair price" for it?

i'm assuming we'll have to use water based ink with it.
- what brand and what kind of ink can you recommend?
- how badly does these inks smell compared to solvent based Nazdar inks for coroplast?
- can I use my "yellow" 250 mesh screens I used for coros,
and what kind screens will i need if not?
- what kind of squgee will i need? i currently have my "coro sqd" it's about 65 duro

Thank a lot everybody!
Hope that someone will care to help me out :)

Hi Stan;

Re printing, you need to test an ink once you get your stock - if it is coated it might not take a certain ink. Never guess with stock you have not printed before.
WB ink smells way less than corogloss, you will love it - like the difference between a fragrant ripe 20 year old out house and a modern new bathroom....
I use TW 5000, but there are a few waterbased and many solvent based that will stick to paper, just get your dealer to TEST some for you first before you buy.

250 mesh will be perfect for printing.
You can probably use the same squeegee, just don't fold it over when printing, 65 is pretty soft.

The material you are asking about is called "Milk carton Stock" I believe. We printed the Governor signs for Michigan years ago on it. Standard inks such as Naz-Dar solvent based should work fine...check with them. 65D should be fine but I like 70-75 for this stock. The material we used was about 24 point in thickness and we ran it on automatic cylinders with no trouble. As for durability it was always sufficient for the political arena so they were never out for more than a few months and seem fine.
