Hi,

I'm setting up a silkscreen printers and i was wondering whether I need a Film Printer or not (like BlackMax)? Is it just a gimmick.

Also say i use a normal printer which is better inkjet or laser? Because i know using for lithographs laser is better as it holds to the laminate firmer but from what i've read here inkjet is.

Thanks,

Will

Well honestly whatever produces the DARKEST BLACKS and the crispest Halftones will do. I work as a graphic guy for this screenprinting place and we use a Business Copy machines, it works, not the darkest black but it works for what we need it for. Inkjet machines will probably give you the darkest black unless you get something like the Xante B&W lazer printer which produced VERY BLACK films

I use my standard desktop printer which is a epson 1400 inkjet. I have used laser for my film but the inks are cheaper for the epson than toner for the laser.
