So I just realized that I’m out of tympan paper. I have finally used all 10 sheets that my press came with when I purchased, so I start looking for more and I can’t believe that the only sell it in large quantities of like 100 sheets. So Because I’m a cheap and also because I reuse sheets of tympan paper several times before I get a new sheet out I’m curious if anyone else with the same size press would be interested in going in on an order with me. Or if anyone knows of someone that sells it in smaller quantities than NA Graphics
It’s not exactly what they teach in letterpress school, but I like to use graph paper. It provides horizontal and vertical lines that are so helpful when I’m registering. I have tympan paper laying around, but graph paper (with proper packing) seems to works well for me. I use a nice clean sheet every time. It’s very inexpensive and it goes into the recycle bin when I’m done with each job.I’m actually curious about using Mylar. Graph paper works, so I haven’t picked any up yet.
