Screen Pinting Seperations

Posted on Thu, 11 Aug 2005 at 23:35



I need to get a printer for printing separations for my screen printing. It needs to be able to print half tones and print up to 13 inches wide. Any suggestions?

The cheapest way is to purchase a refurb. epson 1280 (13x19 capable) from epson.com and use two programs called ghostscript and ghostview (freeware). This works beautifully and will cost only $225 with epson's $100 rebate. I print all my seps from CorelDRAW 12 as EPS files, open them in ghostview, and then print direct to the epson from there. All of the dot sizes and angles are set in Corel.
