    Dot Matrix Printer As A Stencil Maker?

    I have had great success with a 24 pin dot matrix. The 9 pin will produce a dotted stencil. 24 pin is the way to go. I use photoshop to edit and create the final line drawing. I have used two methods to print. Save as a GIF or print and scan and save as jpeg. (I use one computer, w/ scanner printer for this then save to jump drive and transfer to the computer with the dot matrix printer) Open the saved file using windows picture and fax viewer and print. Works like a charm! I removed the printer ribbon to print the stencil after printing a test page. You can adjust the pressure of the printer head if the stencil comes out too light. Hope this helps.

    Just ordered samples. If they are as good as they sound, will be ordering more and introducing them to local artists in my neck of the woods!
