TRANSPARENCIES   *see note below

 Create your own designs: Water-resistant printable transparency.   Print from your computer, or draw directly on the film with any opaque ink,  then  burn onto the emulsion sheet/screen in your Yudu.  Smear resistant transparencies allow sharply defined images. 

Screen Blockout (2oz.)

Nontoxic and nonflammable, quick and easy clean up with water, Blockout does just what it says. Paint out pinholes, smudges, unwanted lines. Lets you fix your mistakes, allowing you to repair screen images instead of starting from scratch.
MSRP: $8.00   Our price: $5.95

 

*Working with Transparencies:

It's hard to get a truly opaque image on a home printer.  An old printers' trick is to print two copies and stack them precisely, doubling the opacity.

We recommend using a laser jet, set to maximum ink. Any PPC copier will work on either side of any transparency.

 Sometimes you need to run a line of tape across the feed edge so the copier will recognize that there is, indeed a feed going through.


INKJETS: Which side of the film do I print on? Transparencies often have two different sides. You can tell which side is inkjet receptive side by wetting a finger lightly and touching the film. Inkjet coated side is slightly tacky when wet.

What are the optimal printer settings?

Inkjet Printers: Open your printer menu "Utilities" drop down menu to choose the following options:
~  Select BEST QUALITY PHOTO or BEST IMAGE This will enable your printer to print at its max resolution.
~  Select paper settings dropdown to "premium glossy photo paper" or similar. This tells your printer to lay down the maximum amount of ink, which gives you the best opacity.

Handle these printout with care; it may remain wet longer than usual. Some printers allow you to select "longer drying time". This function is in the "Advanced" tab on the print options menu.
