  4. Plastisol Ink Screen Printing
    Hello all! Long time user, first time poster. I run a medium sized print shop and order quarts of emulsion because of the shelf life.

  11. T shirt Printing Issues
    EDIT solved I'm having trouble exposing this LED emulsion. I tried a range from 5 seconds to 10 min with a 21step calculator to dial it in and the 5sec-15sec range seems to work better than longer times. But the top layer of the emulsion starts to break down and get stringy... like a very thin...
