Default Re: humidity

Humidity can effect emulsion, positives, ink, frames, substrate, etc, etc, Buy a dehumidifier. If your basement is too big, build a false wall so you have a smaller enclosed area.

Yep, buy a dehumidifier for your screen room.

But if you decide to print with waterbased inks, the humidity will be a blessing.
