- Mar 10, 2002I've learned the hard way a couple of times. Once I lost registration on a
two color flag border, oh my, handmade paper broadside which shrank between
runs because it took me all night to get the 2nd run to print correctly.
Solved the disaster by getting a pink pastel crayon and boldly obliterating
the details of the old red white & blue.
Another time I was asked to do a printing demo on dampened paper. My friend
papermaker Ray Tomasso gave me a stack of samples to work with. Oops, I
dampened it all into the same plastic bag over night without thinking it
actually was about 15 different kinds of paper. At demo time some sheets were
still dry while others had absorbed all the water in the pile. Lesson
learned: keep different papers in separately wrapped sections or else! Should
have been obvious, but it's experience that counts.
Best wishes, Tom
