1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Yudu Screen Printing Machine on: January 10, 2010 08:41:15 PM
I would hesitate to have the image cut out of the emulsion paper - it sounds like a pain to line up.

The emulsion paper tha comes in rolls is more light senstive than the Yuduu stuff I think. We are considering purchasing some because the cost is so much less. We will probably end up getting some dark room lights for the spare room we're using for crafts.

Also - is anyone having a problem burning screens with transparencies? We got some 11x17 ones printed at Kinkos and the black is not very dark. FOUR DOLLARS a page because it's done on a color printer (the B&W copier was worse).


If you're having trouble getting the images on your transparencies dark enough, the DIY trick is to print out 2 of them on your printer at home using regular transparencies you can buy in an office supply store.  Tape the 2 images together, one on top of the other, and make sure they line up properly.  That should provide a sufficiently dark image to block out the light and get a good clean burn on the emulsion.
