Hi. I’m new to letterpress and really enjoying it, but I just found out I’m pregnant. I’d like to continue printing and I’ve read the other posts about CA wash alternatives, but the printshop I work in often has fumes of CA wash regardless. I would like to talk to my dr. about it but I’m not sure exactly what to tell him. Chemical makeup of the solvent? Is there a more common chemical name I can use to refer to CA wash? Thanks for any advice!
Congrats on your pregnancy! I didn’t read through all of this other thread, but I know this has been something that’s been covered in the past on LofL…if my memory serves me correctly, there was a discussion about being pregnant and what chemicals other ladies used:
