    see this is a professional operation from an expert who knows the industry and what he is talking about- the other expert video of the clown drug addict in the yellow shirt was how NOT to screen print.

    we have one of those shitty gray dryers at my shop its so damn loud! discharge looks pretty cool but i think its a pain in the ass when you have a 10,000 or so piece run, i always have to line the bottom of my disharge screen with duct tape to keep it from leaking because it does tend to break the emulsion down a little faster and if you spring a leak your fucked because you cant blast the ink out of the shirt, and it the smell gives me a headache!
    i agree with futurelaugh

    Plastisol will be cheaper price-wise. IMHO, you can’t put a price on the soft hand achieved by using waterbase inks and discharge for your darks on light. Truly a night and day difference.

    Does anyone know where I can find someone or business that makes large sized silk screens? The sizes I’m looking for is anything from, 4ft X4ft to lets say 4ftx8ft. I’m not interested in Laser printing or T-shirt sized screens. If you could possible help with this, I would be very thankful.
