  • At first I thought this was a promo for some reality show about marketing. Once I followed the link to the guy's site though I realized I'd fallen victim to his "I'm an obnoxious blow hard" marketing. Aside from that, his "business card" is in fact NOT a business card. A business card denotes a standard size printed item. Like letterhead or envelope or anything else we use names...

  • The two scanners I'm familar with were and older Screen, I forget the model now. It was the kind with no computer attached to it and imaged directly to film for the most part. Rows and rows of dials to adjust the color on the scan. The other was a monster Crossfield. The "big" drum on it could mount something in the size of 20 x 22 iirc. We did do some oil mounts on chromes larger...

  • A high end drum scanner could have scanner could have accomplished the same thing. Every high end production scanner I know of scans both reflective and transmissive originals. Most, especially later models, did insanely high resolution and enlargement as well. The big advantage using a high end camera like this is you don't need to mount the original to a drum. This is typically...

  • This is what happens when you have legislators who are outside of the industry making regulations for that industry. They decide what's best for the industry based on the claims they hear or they think are being made regarding what's bad and good, wether there's any backing for the claims or not. They don't do anything to find out any of the facts themselves but simply take the...

  • Excellant link!! Thank you. I've been toying with the idea of getting an oscillating roller off a small offset press and figuring out how to mount it. This is great info.

  • I don't know if there's any way to accomplish this but the only real solution is either rollers with a bigger circumference or more rollers to carry more ink and replenish the form rollers. This is the reason modern offset presses have upwards of 13 rollers all of differing circumferences. Vandercooks and some other cylinder presses have an oscillating roller to help with this too...

  • Sounds like what your getting is called ghosting. It's the result of the rollers not being able to carry enough ink to cover all of the area being printed. As a result when the rollers pass over the text that ink is stripped off the roller. When it then inks the solid the areas of the roller that inked the text has a thinner layer of ink left on it and it shows as lighter against...
