The Epson P-800 and the Epson T-3270 are both great options for screen-printing businesses looking to easily create dark and dense film positives, according to the company. The P-800 can print film positives up to 17. inches wide, while the T-3270 offers printing widths up to 24 inches.

The “Screen Print Editions” of these printers come with a 100-foot roll of film positive transparences; a roll-media adaptor; AccuRIP Black Pearl software; and specialized black dye ink with UV-blocking characteristics for optimal exposure, according to the company. — D.S.
