2488Re: Question on photopolymer printing.
- Feb 22, 2004Thanks John for your input. Indeed, I am trying to lay down a very
even, non-blotchy film of thin ink on a plastic substrate to use as a
filter. Another question. How bad is the density variation at the
edges, or it's really depended on the thinness of the ink?
