Film Output Systems

Film Output Systems are an essential key to any screen printing shop. It’s this major step that allows you to transfer your artwork to the screen. When you have turned your design into a film positive, you will print it with black ink on clear waterproof film. This positive print will block out the light during the exposure process. If you don’t have a clean, dark film positive you will lose the crisp, clean look of your design. The darker your positive the better the image will wash out on your screen, and this is why your film output system is crucial.

Epson printers are the best printers on the market! These printers will ensure a dark ink positive and come with AccuRIP software. Since these printers only print black ink they are fast, reliable, and can print halftones. Below are the Epson Film Output Packages that we recommend at Mclogan’s:

Epson 1430 All Black Ink Film Output Package  The 1430 can print 13 inches wide and comes with 6 black ink cartridges, AccuRIP software and 200 sheets of waterproof film. Easy to set up, and affordable while still offering Epson’s amazing quality prints.
