Uneven Impression on a C&P 10x15

I have also posted this on Briar Press...I am attempting to print a large pattern (5x7) using a polymer plate on my C&P 10x15.The edges of the print have a deeper impression than the center, and I would like for it to be even across the page.I have thought about using packing to build up the center but since it is a pattern there really isn't an easy way to create a shape that will fill the area of the lighter impression.I have been reading other message board postings but most seem to be…See More

"Hello, I am thinking about doing a large run of thank you notes and am looking for something more cost effective than the Lettra, and something that folds a bit better. I am just wondering if you ever came up with a solution for this? Thanks! Adina"

"I wonder why I wasnt sent an email with these replies! Thank you everyone. The weird thing is, I think it is my rollers on my C&P. I even took a ton of ink off the press and was still getting the splotchy coverage. I tried it on my 3x5…"

"The color of the paper is shining through. Is there transparent white ink in the formula? You should probably use  Van Son Tough Tex, it can be purchased at http://www.bsink.com/  "

Kseniya: Thomas-Printers replied to Bunny Bear Press's discussion Printing on Stardream HELP
