please help - setting up small screen printing station

Posted on Wed, 8 Jun 2005 at 18:24

Hello fellows,

I work for a vinyl sign co and after reading an article in Sign Business Magazine we are trying to set-up our own small screen-printing station.

We will be printing exclusively 18"x24" one color coros, text only (well, maybe simple outlined logos)

Our Ideas for that is to buy few frames with screens 155 white mesh, like 24"x36", make our own screens with UlanoCut Amba cut film, use 60 durometer squige. We are thinking of using Nazdar inks 9700 series with 5% added NB 70 Catalyst.

My questions are will the UlanoCut Amba film work well for this printing? Will it give clean, sharp edges of the print-outs?

And most importantly is there any odor and harm less inks we can use inside of the office? We don’t really need the signs to last more than 4-6 months.

Thank a lot for any possible input,
