Hey everybody so I’ve been printing my positive films/ transparency sheets on a canon pro 100 with NO accurip. The films/sheets are coming out fine but some letters or lines look jagged. BUT when I burn the screen and print, the jagged lines doesn’t show on my shirts/hoodies and looks smooth. ALSO when I printed out the exposure calculator all the halftone dots looked really good!
So my questions are
1. Do I really need accurip and is accurip only for half-tone dots like some people are telling me ?
2. For PAPER TYPE I choose photo gloss paper, is there another paper type that I should use to get even better results.
3. I use 13x19 transparency film sheets. I select A3 for size. Am I choosing the right one or should I use A3+BODERLESS?

Never used a RIP and I've been doing this for 10 years.
For high volume environments a minute or two saved per design by using a RIP makes a difference.
Also good for people with little or zero graphics skills.

Perfect for your printer.

Makes no difference, unless you need to use the additional space.

You are probably printing raster images.
Printing vector at 300 PPI should solve the issue.
