    hello I have a strange pattern showing up in a print job. The job is on a gloss sheet and is showing a moray like pattern in the black. It shows in the solid area slightly and in the shadow and highlight areas it is really bad. any help would be nice I will try and post a pic

    Could this be a previously printed job ghost showing up on an old blanket?

    I've seen this before, its the angle of the screens, check with pre-press, ask them to adjust the angle, good luck

    X's 2 I agree. Screen angle issue in prep.

    Thanks for you responses turns out it was a blanket issue. Was using a blanket made under the name aquamarine . I pulled a old day blanket I had sitting on the shelf and put it on presto pattern was gone

    For general info...moiré due to screen clash doesn't/can't show up in a solid.
