For the first two months I could not do a pull print at all. It took me a month before I could do a good push print. Now that I have a better press, it easier to do pull prints.

I've been practicing. I can do pull prints almost as good as I can do push prints, but I'm getting better results.

I'm getting noticeably crisper images, and the plastisol sit on the shirt better. I'm not driving the ink into the shirt as much. With white ink, I'm getting a flatter more even surface. Also I feel like I have more control over the thickness of the ink I'm laying down.

A design I'm making where I was doing print flash print, I've cut down to just print by doing a pull stroke a getting a thicker layer. I end up with a superior looking print without having to flash, whereas my final product was too thick with having to do two layers.
