    so i have many questions about making non silkscreen prints.

    what is the order of preperation for getting started?
    what paper size grade and texture should one use for the inital piece that you want to have printed?
    is there a preferred kind of ink one should use for the piece you want to have printed?
    once you have the design on a rough or original what should you do with it at that point? do you have to have a plate made for paperprints like tshirts?

    anything else one should know?
    thanks in advance.

    silkscreening looks cool and is way easier than any of the shit you're talking about. stick with silk.
