Hi Prosperi-Tess, if you want one, my previous offer is open to you. Answering your concern about losing feel, no worries, it's completely the opposite, you have way so much better control and sensitivity with this system. It's really an improvement over the wood squeegee. The upright position of the hands is the secret. It's just that simple. But I understand, it's so new, people are leery, that's why I've made the offer of 10 free parts. Your HONEST review will be the best sales pitch I could ever have. Now, if this is not a leap of faith, I don't know what is! But I know what you'll say, everyone who uses it says the same thing. The love it, and as of that moment, they stop regularly using the wood squeegee. Hope to hear from you.

Hi Mimosatexas, you got it, I look forward to your email. Do you personal print? How will you put TheEZGrip.com to use? A lot of people want to try it with white ink, because they think by using bigger muscles, it will enhance the downward force, so it will make the ink pass thru easier and better.

I'm an all manual shop and I am the only printer.  I print both waterbased and plastisol.  I pull for waterbased and push stroke for plastisol.  I use S-mesh and controlled eom with properly stirred and warmed ink, so I actually print whites with less pressure than other inks, not more (usually).  I will absolutely put the design through its paces, and will of course post my review here for everyone.  I have no idea if it will be better or worse than traditional squeegees, but I'm interested to see how it might be used...

My wrist is acting up again this week so I'd love to take one for a whirl and I'm happy to post my feedback. I'm an all manual shop and have some large jobs coming up. Always willing to try a new squeegee.

I am also a manual shop and have been so for about 8 years.  I have a few of these EZ Grip Squeegee handles and have started using them when I print white ink.  In the past, printing orders with 150 shirts front and back with white ink  would just about kill my hands using a regular wooden handle squeegee.  When using this new handle I don't have any issues affecting my hands and I feel like I still have very good control over the squeegee.  Just my 2-cents here.  I hardly ever post, but I love this forum and thought I could make a useful comment on something I have used.

If you haven't already, look into s-mesh. I love white only print jobs manually these days. Thick eom and thin thread mesh and almost no pressure with the fast push stroke you can controllably do and they go super super fast. Just did one today that was a one hit on fuzzy triblends due to the nature of the art (mostly text and line art). Didn't even turn on the flash...

I think I submitted a post, but it looks like maybe I didn't, so if this is a similar post, forgive me.

bdsprint Randy, thanks for taking the time to reply. As a printer, I experienced the same thing about having good control over the way the squeegee prints an image, and my hands also feel comfortable holding the hand grip.

Hearing comments like yours means a lot in helping to launch a new product, especially one so different in design. Thanks again

2 over 2 sloooooooowww. Triple durometer push stroke in an ergonomic squeegee. Fresh blade with some frequency, at least compared to my other colors. Dedicated only to white. Ink is stirred and warmed before it hits the screen.

Hi Prosperi-tees, to answer your question, any size durometer or method of use. It doesn't matter. The tool excels at all levels of expectation.

Thanks for bring up the question on blades. TheEZGrip holder is 13" wide, so it can hold a blade as small as you want and blades up to 14" without a loss of print quality at the edge of the imprint.

The precise distance between the handles was engineered so the downward pressure would assure equal ink saturation from side to side.   

FYI, TheEZGrip is made by a process called injection molding. Plastic, in this case nylon plastic, is heated and pressed into a mold with 20,000 psi at about 350 degree. The tolerances for the mold ranges from 1/1000 to 5/1000. As a point of reference, a sheet of paper is 3/1000.

Here's a link to the website product information page      http://www.theezgrip.com/product-info.html

Prosperi-tees, let me explain further about the durometer ratings that work with TheEZGrip Screen Squeegee. As I mentioned, any size works, it's like a screw driver, it doesn't matter whether the driver is using a flat or philips head, the actual driver works the same.

Another question to raise is how does the blade stay in the blade slot. Can one size fit all? First of all, not all blades are made to the same thickness, the desired spec is 375/1000, but they vary, even by a little a the thickness of a piece of paper 3/1000, so TheEZGrip engineered internal ribs positioned inside the blade slot, 18 ribs in all. The ribs oppose one another and each extend 25/1000 away from the blade rail, assuring a tight grip for any blade. A blade too thick is solved with a little water and soap.   

Thanks you have some good questions, can't wait for your review.

An associate who owns a shop in Cottonwood AZ sent me this recommendation and asked me to post it. This is a real comment, you can check out his website at:http://www.graphicsilkscreen.com/. I talk to him yesterday and he said since he's been using TheEZGRip (3 momths), he hasn't gone back to his wood squeegees and he said, "Why would I"

I would recommend these to anyone that wants to get started into screen printing and those who have been doing this for over 20 years like myself.  Thanks EZgrip!"

The least you could do is introduce him to the board, and have him give his own endorsement. C'mon, do your part and spread the word about us as well! Fair is fair.
