Film Output for Screen Printers – I’m often asked, “What should I buy to create film positives?” Today, your best bet is the Epson 1430 printer, available for about $300. You’ll need RIP software to produce halftone dots. Most common is FilmMaker (formerly FastRIP) or AccuRIP. Both are $495. FilmMaker is PC only. AccuRIP can be purchased in PC or Mac versions.
