    Great little eBook. RE: Spray Booth. Here’s a tip for a relatively inexpensive but VERY effective 10 ft x 10 ft booth. Purchase a 10 X 10 “pop up” tent with walls. I purchased one from Costco for $199. Inside I use a an air filter to remove dust (let it run before coating) and another that blows from outside the booth to create “positive pressure”. The tent aluminum structure can easily hold lights, hangers for prints etc. Inside I have a table for rolling, and two 4 x 8 wall mounted spray surfaces (white peg board). Works like a charm.

      Wow Marshall, that’s great information! Thank you!
      If you have any photos of your setup, we’d love to see them.

    Have you guys heard of Apple and iPads? I would love to have this ebook to read but apparently it was developed to be invisible to iPad owners! You might want to check out some better technology!

      Hi Syd, thanks for the comment. The E-book is created in flash format, which I understand does not open on apple devices. I emailed you the PDF version of the E-book that you can open in iBooks or Newsstand. Let me know if you have any other questions.

        Can you email it to me as well please? Thanks. Matt(dot)stark(at)procolorgraphics(dot)com

    Great eBook guys!  The strainer on page 7 was a big help to a few print shops I work. They are trying get extra miles out of their coating.  Their coating was sitting on the shelf for almost 6 months.  All it took was some stirring and the strainer from page 7 and everything’s working great.  Thanks for the book, very helpful.

    I am enjoying your articles as I plan my set-up for large format printing on canvas.

    Thank you,

    The ebook doesn’t want to come up on my Mac. It’s just a black with the spinning wheel in it????

  • Stan

    Win7 X64, latest Flash version, just uninstalled, rebooted, downloaded, and reinstalled.

    Can’t get the ebook to come up, just the spinning wheel.

    I could get it when it first came out, but not now.
