I used some small motives, printed in white (signet 1st layer), blue (signet 2nd), "stars" in yellow, "web" in red.

Print it, wherever you are ;-)

Thermofax-Print: My Cards from 2016

Here the cards, I've printed with the "quick&dirty" Thermofax-print in 2016.
I've used from two up to four colors. All printed on cardboard 250 / 300 g/m2 with Acryl-Colors.
Every Card with 50 copies. 50 copies are just enough to keep fun when printing.
More copies becomes  w o r k .

Cards, Thermofax-Print




I wish you a very colorfull 2017

Thermofax-Printing "quick&dirty" unleashed

At first the result, size 29 x 40 cm, 5 colors, 2 rainbow-prints:

Thermofax-print
The complete Thermofax-Print, size A3.
And in this way I began:

Thermofax-print
The CopyPrinter-Master size 20 x 42 cm, with tape at the small edges.

Thermofax-printing
Thermo-printing with the Brother CJ-723.
The Master is mounted on a paper. Printig upside down.




The first color (lightblue), printed in 2 tracks.

1st track of the 2nd color (dark blue).

Now both tracks are printed in dark blue.

3rd color: rainbow-print of green and brown.

Multicolor
4th color: rainbow-print of brown and black.

...the 5th color is black.

And the last color is copper:
Situation shot: printing copper-metallic.
The copper-color-print of the fish.
Some new experiances:
> with the Brother PJ-723 it is possible to burn "infinity" CopyPrinter-Masters, in the width of max. 21cm. I use only 20cm, because the angel of retraction must be very, very 90°.
> When burning the Master, it becomes longer... and more length, when getting wet by color and streched by the squeegee, and I'm talking about cm!
If you want a matching of the different color, you should swage the picture with your program before printing on the Master.
> Printing with metallic-colors... is not so easy. This time I printed the "salmon" several times, with drying inbetween with a hair-dryer.
The color sticked the Master very quick, so I used for every picture a new Master-film, because the material is very cheap. If you have only one burned Master, you better wash it out.

Nevertheless, it was a very good experiance with the "quick&dirty" thermofax-printing.
Now I know, how I can print very quick in very big sizes...
Ok, Andy Warhol did it before, but he used the "complex" screen-printing-system.

I wish you nice celebration-days... with large prints ;o)

Thermofax-Printing with a CasioWriter CW-16


The CasioWriter CW-16 without ribbon.

Just reading in the manual about the CasioWriter CW-16, that this typwriter works without ribbon, "when thermal paper is employed". Wow - so I used it with my Gestetner-Copy-Master, mounted as usually.
& here is the print:


Ooops, the words are mirrored, when printed.
Ok, lets try to use the Copy-Master from its backside:

Ok, I wanted to write, "...you have to print on clear..."
It works ;-)
The back-side-print has more fringe edges... but this small letters are good readable.
My tip for your next invitation-card: use an old thermo-typewriter for the text.

printed from the usual side

printed from the back side

Have a nice time, when printing your x-mas cards...this year with pics & words (poems?)

Thermofax Printing with Brother Pocket-Jet 723

I know, this thermofax-printer (max. A4) is not cheap, but make it able to print directly from your Mac/PC.

PJ723, Thermofax-film mounted on a 80g/qm-paper, size A5.


Additional the driver offers you the possibility to use a very fine screening.
Settings:
Sorry, I using a german driver.
The result are speckles, you know from an ink-jet-printer, very fine... so fine, that it is not easy to adjust the paper under the Gestetner-thermofax-film.
Now I make the first print on an fixed transparency, under this I adjust the paper I use for printing.

Here is the result from my 1st 4C*)-thermofax-handprinting:

4-Color Thermofax Hand-Printing, Postcard.

Here you can see the speckles the driver makes.
Happy printing
-ekk-

PS & VERY IMPORTANT:
The Brother PJ723 likes it very clean, but when printig on the Gestetner-Film the plastic-surface evaporate.
To keep the Pocket-Jet clean you have to make one, ore two PRINTS on simple, clean paper.
*) 4color-seperation made with Photoshop.
Ok, after printing you can see nothing on the paper, but you can feel the plastic on the surface of the paper.
