I need a Printer to print my positives

Posted on Fri, 20 Aug 2004 at 15:53



I've been screeprinting about a year now and have learned a lot and i really like it a lot. I'm a student and on a total budge and basically had to print out my positives using my hp 895cse deskjet.. I told myself when i save up enough I will get a better printer to print my positives. Now is the time..woohoo! I was so sick and tired of having to print like 4 copies of my design on transparency so the design is dense enought to prevent light from coming in. Now imagine a 4 color shirt .... which had a total of 16 transparencies...lol. Im doing screenprinting and sublimation and now im moving more towards screenprinting if i have a perfect printer to print ou my positives....

So if you can please recommend a top printer under 500.00 to print out my positives, i will reallly appreciate it.... I'm looking for one that i can basically print one transparencey or film and it will be dense enough to burn... Please don't recommend me to go to kinkos.. .they really don't work well (for me at least.... told the worker to make it dense as possible..) and it turns out even 3 transparencies they printed for me didn't even get the screeen washed out...

Also... do i need like fast films or something to make my prints darker then usuall... I hope not since that software cost a lot and im poor...lol thanks

grab an epson 9800 with wasatch rip and you'll be printing large format films easily...we use this for ALL of our belt films as well as our regular films for our shop of 6 autos, 1 belt, 3 manuals...

the epson 9800 prints a little slow, but the films are good with excellent dark blacks. we're usually ripping from 20-100 films/day depending if the production dept is running new programs or reruns and this printer has been the best investment we've made in the last 3 years. if you have the volume, this will pay for itself quickly(for us, 2.5 months) and now we're making money on films as opposed to sending out.

hope this helps 8)

Actually we have a 9800 RIP available for $995 as well as high quality waterproof inkjet film at a great price.

I also let people know that to start out even an Epson R1800 is a great system for films up to 13" wide. And it's pretty inexpensive as well.

I've got an Epson 1280 that works pretty good. And it's pretty cheap. If you can spring for a 4000 or 4800 that would probably the way to go. We've got an Epson 9800 with wasatch that works great. Be careful of some of the junk on Ebay. I bought a 3000 on Ebay for $250 and it was a total waste of money.
hope that helps.
