Tips and Tricks: Hard-Core Registration Set-up

Friday, March 6, 2009

I was thinking about doing a little video about registration techniques for Print Gocco.  Then I came across this on flickr and it made my silly video idea seem like a real "flop." I'm all about the puns lately, I guess.  I still plan on making the video but while you wait, you can think about assembling this awesome contraption Sean Tuberity came up with.  It doesn't seem too hard to make when you think about it.   The vertical block needs to be the same height as the base of the printer.  I'm assuming the flop is some kind of thin plexiglass??  This might be the next thing on my "honey do" list.

I have done this method with screenprinting and it really works. When I used it with a large 'proper' screen I used a small piece of acetate/clear plastic and used sellotape (scotch tape US?) to stick it down. This method could probably be used with the gocco in which case you would only need to stick down the acetate/plastic to the gocco machine rather than a big wooden built mechanism like the one pictured. I will try it next week and let you know the results.

Wow, that registration setup is quite impressive! I wonder what material the clear registration plate is made out of?
