    Waterslide decals

    The more I dig into this topic, the more I come across typefaces that are not recognized by any of the "fontfinder" type programs, or any of my Sherlock Holmes-esque powers of deduction. So I bag dibs on the term: "Extinct font!" Some of these logos are over a hundred years old by now from...

    Waterslide decals

    So here is a little riddle for you Typographics people. HMV has used a few fonts over its 101 year history. I have found one font that is of interest, one is "Cochin" or it is at least close enough. As in picture one. However I can´t find the font shown in the other picture and it´s driving me...

    I am now thinking it could be a combination of Gravur and Flexo. But what I see under the microscope is confusing… Paging Dr. Gordo… Dr. Gordo please respond.

    Waterslide decals

    I can´t see any evidence of silkscreening on these decals and it looks as if the artwork is finer than silk screens can produce today, let along a hundred-odd years ago. It is getting very interesting.

    I am going to take my trusty microscope and take a closer look at the “his masters voice” logo on my hmv109. Get to the bottom of this mystery one way or another.

    Waterslide decals

    Could be it, as in Intaglio printing. That would work, I hadn´t thought about that, it would make the logos very much fine art by the standards of the time, even today´s standard.

    Waterslide decals

    Hi, just started to restore an old gramophone and have gotten to the part where I need to recreate a one hundred year old logo from a company that no longer exists. So I am getting the artwork done and have figured out that at the time they used water slide decals, just like the ones we had as...

    Zero, but what happened to the big Munsell test? This one seems to be a tad "politically correct"

    Screen Cezanne Image corruption

    If there are no error messages then this looks like either jitter from a dry rail or spindle or a wonky stepper motor. Try using a light oil on the mechanics.

    Imagine the government did nothing, or next to nothing like the US or the dumpster fire in Brazil, or the UK etc. It seems that the majority of "conservative" lead countries have the highest Corvid count an the highest death toll to report. Trying to nice talk and pretty up the statistices for...

    I wish science would come up with a vaccine for American pseudo-science-mumbojumbo. Unless you are breathing in a sealed fishbowl there is no way you can be re-rebreathing your own CO2.

    Your Dr. Pamela Popper is a so-called "naturopath" with focus on alternative and folk medicine and not evidence based medicine. In short she is doing nothing more than peddling ju ju and I would not trust what she has to say. Apart from that the video seems to be ancient and from that far gone...

    anilox recommendation

    As Cornishpastythighs says, a banded anilox maybe a good purchase. You can still use your 150 to 175 lpi without much ado, what RIP will you be using? Just don´t forget your bump ups and you should be fine, however all screen forms commonly used in Offset may not be practical, stick with round...

    anilox recommendation

    I suppose you would first have to determine what screen ruling you want to print, say a 70ppcm screen; would be 180 lpi, a low ball ratio screen to anilox would be 1:5, gives you 900 pits per inch.
