Having trouble dialing in those exposure times? This calculator is an easy way to ensure you're getting the proper exposure times. The size of this is 1/2" x 3 3/4" so you can place it on your screen while exposing your image without it interfering.
How to Use:
Place the calculator on the screen as you would your regular image. And run the exposure time you think is correct. When you wash out your image, you want your step to have 7 solid steps left.

Easy to use, dialed my exposure times in, does what it says it does.
I recently switched to the DC Pink emulsion and this thing helped me dial in exposure time. I got a solid 7 on my second try. I knew I was right on the money. Shipping was super fast and early even in the middle of the holidays. I now buy all my supplies from direct. Super happy.
I've seen miracles spoken of this exposure calculator for dialing in exposure times. However, it assumes that you are printing your designs on transparencies with ink. I haven't made the investment in a good photo printer yet, so I'm still printing on vellum with my old laser printer. If I use the exposure calculator with that, I end up with very overexposed screens because the toner lets way too much light through. Once I step up to ink on film, I'm sure this will be incredibly useful.
I love your store, great prices, great quality. Like for real I have had the best luck with your guys products
I recently placed an order and received 13x19 flim pack and 8.5x11 film in separate boxes but i was missing the exposure calculator. Sales@kreationzink.com Thank you! -Dylan
