It says that it is made for screen printing. When Mark said it had a blue color I was worried that that might have an effect, but if it is used with screen printing then it would be fine for us, too. I am tempted to buy a roll, but I don't have a 24 inch printer.

Ran across this in the March issue Great Output magazine. I haven't tried it but thought those of you that create digital negatives might be interested.

If anyone tests this material please post the results.
