    Any printers here? I took a few courses in college, and did some ‘kitchen table’ printing this weekend. I’m frustrated by how much harder it is to get consistent prints without a press, but I started getting the hang of it after a while. I think you have to dial in the ink consistency really well to get it to print nicely by hand. I had a few that came out too dark and splodgy, and a lot that came out too light.

Some inks use a water-soluble dye, while others use an insoluble pigment or something that reacts with the paper, which determines their most important properties. Here we go.
