AccuRIP Black Pearl Software - Screen Printing Supplies
What is AccuRIP Black Pearl?
If you are a screen printer who wants to produce high-quality film positives for your designs, you might have heard of AccuRIP Black Pearl. But what exactly is it and how does it work?
AccuRIP Black Pearl is a software that allows you to print accurate and dense separations for screen printing using an inkjet printer. It works as a printer driver that converts your graphics into halftone dots that can block UV light during exposure. It also has an exclusive feature called All Black Ink that enables you to use multiple black ink tanks for better ink coverage and cost efficiency.
Why do you need AccuRIP Black Pearl?
Screen printing is a process that involves transferring ink through a mesh screen onto a substrate such as fabric, paper, metal, etc. To create different colors and effects, you need to use different screens for each color or layer of your design. This means that you need to print your design on a transparent film that can be used to make the screens.
However, printing your design on a film is not as simple as printing it on a paper. You need to make sure that the film is accurate, dense, and consistent. Accuracy means that the size and shape of your design match the original file. Density means that the ink on the film is opaque enough to block UV light during exposure. Consistency means that the quality of the film does not vary from one print to another.
