    I hate it when I got a banner printing and it's 6ft into printing

    when all of the sudden some freakish blemish shows up somewhere in a solid color.

    Heads are clean . . . Grrrr. :banghead: :frustrated:

    Agreed, it the material coating . . . Not the printer or ink.

    It's a brand new roll and I wasted the first 4 feet as I always do to eliminate creases and coating flaws . . . Oh' well !

    Those Pantone markers are amazing. The combination of those, Prismacolors and color pencil is untouchable for illustrations.

    Whenever you have the chance. Stop by your local art supply store and check on their markers. Many times they will have some on sale. Acumulate as many as you can .. Keep them in a closed container. I have allot of different colors and tones and they allways save my a$$ whenever a small defect shows up. This is a solution for when the customer first sees his print up close. Once it's installed they forget about it (good thing since these inks will only last 2,3 weeks outside. some even less).

    Ahhh brings me back to college.... Wish I knew where those damn things where. Used to love being able to actually sit down and be creative instead of knocking out production bore all day long....

    Thanks,
    Kurt
