Do you need a RIP software?

Ink control is one of the key factors in producing high quality film. Too much ink and you gain up your image, loose detail and throw off your dot percentages. Too little ink and you'll get banding and poor screen burning. We've found that the Epson drivers are adequate for producing simple line art film. But the all black feature of Accurip or the multi black feature of FilmMaker will give you the best ink control, the ability to produce spot colors and print halftones. All of which increase the qualiy and save you time. Do we think a rip is worth the money? Yes, we do. Can you get away without it for simple line art separations? Yes, absolutely.

We no longer offer any rips for sale but we recommend you purchase them from the respective manufacturers websites.

Using our suggested ink setting, printing directly from your favorite art program, you can produce quality printed film right out of the box with or without a RIP.

If you haven't done so already, check out the printed film samples in the image section above. As you can see these pictures were taken on an exposure unit. The image on the top was printed with our suggested "Rich Black" ink settings from the Epson drivers. The key to getting dark films without a rip is to set your art file up as a cmyk image and set every channel to 100%. This will force the printer to print from more than just the "photo black" cartridge. Also you need to use the  "Premium Presentation Paper Matte" setting from the Epson driver setting. Using our all black ink system and using these simple settings will get you really nice film.

So do you need to spend $500+ for RIP software? The answer is yes and no. If you're a smaller shop that isn't doing much in the way of fine detail or halftones then you can get away without a rip. If you're printing a lot of film and could benefit from being able to produce halftones and print spot colors then we would definitely recommend a RIP like Accurip or FilmMaker. If you look closely at the second image in the printed sample film above you will see that not only the rip will give you really dense films it will also hold the detail better.


Is the ink UV blocking?

Yes, our UV blocking dye ink is made right here in the good old US of A. It's the best ink on the market for film output on inkjet printers. It's specifically designed to be fast drying, scratch and fade resistant. It works with both water proof and non-water proof media.

Our dye ink not only has superior UV blocking characteristics to standard pigment inks, our bulk system dye ink is also a lot cheaper than standard inkjet cartridges.

    This is my second set... first set lasted me over 4 years. Great product easier to fill than the old ones. I would suggest this to anyone printing all blacks for film.
