superculture small questions

Recommended Posts

Superculture is one of the most diverse areas in Supertalk. Because of the range of topics, it can sometimes be difficult to find the appropriate thread in which to post. In an effort to keep the forum as clean as possible, I thought it might be helpful to give people somewhere to ask questions without derailing other threads or starting threads that are not required.

Remember: there are no stupid questions.

Actually there are - but this gives them somewhere to go. Fire away.

I remember seeing a thread a while back that was something like "help me fnd a download link to _______" (for albums + movies/whatever)

I thought it was in this forum, cant remember, cant find it.

I'm not sure what your budget is, but I'd get a Rega turntable. Easy set up, amazing sound, and they will last forever (I own a Rega Planar 25):

Rega P1 - $400

get a pair of monitors, they'll last forever and will sound 100x better (especially at louder volumes) than any 2.1 set of computer speakers

Im trying to print a full color lithograph using polyester (pronto) plates using InDesign. I had a hard time getting the plates printed on the B/W laser printer at school. I would manual load the sheets (11"x17") instead of letting them getting tray-fed, but even doing it this way, Im getting smeared lines across my image area where the toner couldnt adhere to the sheet before getting pulled through the rest of the printer.

So my next plan was to take the separations to Kinkos, but now I have to make the separations myself instead of letting InDesign handle them, right? So if I have to make them myself should I...

1. Be using Photoshop to change each color to bitmap and then saving as a PDF?

2. What should my line screen be set to?

3. And what should my printing angles be?

...anyone who helps, thanks!

I can google too.

I was really looking to see if anyone had ever used these. I've read a bit about single angle printing lately and have been curious. I've screenprinted full color before, Im not a complete novice, but the smearing ink is pissing me off.

try using a laser vellum like this...

http://www.ecomallbiz.com/cmk/imagingproducts/

there a ton of them available.

Also EPSON makes a whole series of inkjet printers that do

a great job of printing dark toner (ink) that creates great screens.

I use an old HP Laserjet 5000 to makes perfect seps. It may be that

the laserprinter you are using isn't able to print toner on vellum effectively.

Yeah Im just going to take the seps to a service provider.

I guess LPI should be around 75 for plates being printed by hand, so now they just have to get printed.

Girlfriend is putting together a portfolio for her architecture school apps, any suggestions on a place to get it printed at? Everything in town is either Kinko's or only do high production runs of stuff.

I've got a bunch of (not only) Black+White and Blue magazines (Australian publications)....in excellent/near mint condition...was collecting them during my school days.

I'd like to unload them. Any suggestions how/where I might do so?

I'm pretty sure there are people who collect these titles.

Thanks.

Is there an existing furniture / interior design thread? I know there's the "your room, your house" one, but looking for one more dedicated to custom/unique furniture...before I start one...

Edit: scratch that, the your house thread is actually pretty good. Didn't take much time to pre-read through it...

Is there a "what are you writing today?" type thread floating around? Could be for fiction, essays, journalism pieces etc.
