Re: Screenprinting exposure table to expose photopolymers?
- Not to be offensive but I am going to file this similar to my folder on what scrapbooking did to the artist book, as what folks looking for the absolute cheapest way to do "letterpress" did to letterpress printing.
Christ, does anyone, anyone?, even care about quality anymore? Is anyone out there?
