H U G E placement prints

Postby micksterbooty » Tue Aug 11, 2009 11:26 pm

Hey Forum,

I need to print huge placement prints Screen Size (2m x 2m). Designs will only be limited to one and two screen designs. I am going to use Permaset Aqua Waterbased inks (unless people think Matsui Inks are superior) on white 100% cotton. The print ready screens will be supplied by a third party so 'all' I have to do is print the designs.

My Questions.

(1) What are the potential pitfalls of printing with such a large screen.
(2) Any suggestions for a printing set-up (table/one arm squeegee/semi-automatic) I will not be producing a huge quantity to start with maybe 10-20 items per week
(3) Since this is a start up business I can't afford an industrial dryer so I plan to air dry and then use an industrial clothes dryer (Permaset suggest this method will cure the ink successfully) as anyone cured water based inks with this method.
(4) Am I dreaming and out of my depth.

Thanks heaps
scared and confused.
