  • We have some brass leading that is the equivalent of a 6pt slug and is 34.5-35.5 picas long with "rule" on either side (except it's not type high). Any ideas on what this stuff might be?

  • >Does anyone have any idea which companies produced type for sign >presses? what is a "sign"-press ? Where should the type put in it ? I don't know an exceptional amount about sign presses, or "sign card" presses. From my understanding, they are very simple and very large flat bed presses where the type was set up, hand-inked, and then printed for signage needs. This type is...

  • Some of my students have had GREAT success on the Epson 2200 with the high quality Epson transparencies. There are a few other older printers that seem to do the trick as well. Also the printer that replaced the 2200 is apparently working for some. Wish I knew for sure and I'd buy one for our shop. I've heard of people using two copies of the transparency and doubling up... Seems...

  • Shelley, Five months along right now on my third pregnancy. I had him look at the MSDS when I found out about the first. He thought it a-okay, plus it's a very heavy solvent, so it doesn't rapidly evaporate, thus you inhale very little concentrated. And the last four months have been the sickest of my life-- but I am still happily involved with my Nature Wash. Marnie Powers-Torrey...

  • We are very devoted to Gan's Nature Wash. It does leave an oily residue that can easily be wiped away with a dry rag. But it has almost no smell, and my father, who has a PhD in chemistry, reviewed the MSDS and reported it as close to completely non-toxic as a solvent can be. It's expensive, but very worth it for our poorly ventilated shop full of sensitive printers. We use it...

  • John- When printing personal or fine press work for the Red Butte Press, or when students in the shop print work, we NEVER let ink sit on the press over night.

  • Shelley: I'd consider if you really need the scale. I think it's really easy to mix violet and purple, so I'd drop those. I'm wondering how often others on the list use reducers and driers? Gan's carries some other great blacks-- XX Black is good for instance. I agree with SilverMay? that a good brown is good to have around. Marnie
