injet receptive clear for artwork

Posted on Thu, 22 Dec 2005 at 15:39



We have been using a roland pc600 to produce our art for screen printing. We now have a mutah falcon outdoor jr 36" inkjet printer. We have learned that we have to use eco- solvent receptive material. We need clear vinyl or some material we can make art work with compatable with our inkjet printer. HELP
we are tired of wasting our money fixing our roland.

Jodi,

I have had artwork from solvent printers
and in my experience whether on coated media for eco-solvents or uncoated on full solvent machines the artwork is generally not dense enough.(although it does expose, you may have to use a slightly higher pressure to wash it all out)
Also you may find that the resolution is
not crisp at the edges like with pc60.
I was using a pc60 for a while and found the banding to be a bit of a problem.

I now use an epson 9500 with AGFA selctjet,
similar to the fast pos that is sold.

Depending on what size screens you are making
and type of art, you could use black vinyl through the pc600(if it cuts ok) for solid designs.and applicte it onto clear polyester
film. just becareful of exposure time as some under cutting can occur.

Try one of the fast pos and Epson packages
available at screenprinters.net these systems would pay for themselves in a short time. You may find your self even doing the
film work for other printers in your area.

Well thats my experience any way

hope it helps

James
