        Does the banding look like squeegee marks or something from your film positive. What angles are you using for your halftones.

          The banding is not on the positive but is coming out on the screen. Here is what I am using 87 LPI, elliptical dot, C=7.5, M=37.5, Y=120 micron, K=67.5.

            I do not output my own seps. I thought in was 75 lpi but it is 87. I think I will try 420 tpi mesh next.

                i would go with 85LPI and print thru 420 or 460 plain weave mesh
                coat the screen 1+1

                also the ink should be formulated to hold 85 LPI

                  For cmyk image 18 x 24, I suggest that your files should be at a minimum of 150 DPI at 100% size (17" x 23") and Metric System may use for lines per inch (Lpi).
