    So, is the ink/paint coming from inside the printing cylinders, through small perforations? Perhaps like a silk screen process?

    The synchronization is impeccable for a machine that seems to simple.
    I remember seeing a tablecloth that was printed out of synch a little, and wondered how it was done.
    I wonder, too, why the following roller doesn't pick up the ink from the previous roller? Its a different area being printed by each roller, but still isn't there some over lap?

    I'm with you, IAMSatisfied. Where does the ink come from? I see no ink reservoirs or doctor blades of any kind. Maybe it is like a silk screen process.

    Of course it's coming out of the rollers, where else would it? It rolls it out, you can mostly see it.
