Your Questions About Paper Trading Online

What is the difference between mass market paperback and paperback?

I was shopping for books online and I saw that some were paper back and some were mass market paperback. I have noticed that most of the time the mass market books are cheeper than paperbacks.Can anyone help me with this? I’m really curious.

John answers:

There are basically 2 common types of paperbacks. Trade paperbacks which are close in size to the hardcovers but with softcover and mass market paperbacks which are smaller in size and what most people consider paperback novels. Trade paperbacks are typically more expensive than mass market but still cheaper than hardback. Typically if just the term paperback is used it is referring to mass market paperback or the book is only available in one size.

If i bring in a picture of the chicago bulls logo will they do it?

Im having a party on Wednesday and we need a chicago bulls logo on the cake, so i was wondering if i took a picture to frys (a grocery store) would they decorate the bull on it or would we have to order the edible thingy online?

John answers:

Sometimes chain grocery store bakeries are kind of weird when it comes to ‘trade mark’ art work or logos. If you are thinking about those realistic edible rice paper kind of designs, they may not do it because of fear of going against a copyright. Kind of dumb, but they may feel like they will get in some kind of trouble or something. A freehand design in frosting should be fine, but I would call first before you waste your time. I had a coworker who wanted a Disney character on a cake for her kid and Safeway wouldn’t do it.

Good online or software for day trading for Beginners?

Please help me to pick out a good Day Trading software or online course, which includes a demo trading. Thanks!

John answers:

Educate yourself extensively, first–that will give you the answers to these questions and everything else you need to know.

An introductory book like _Stock Markets for Dummies_ is a good place to start. This will give you a basic explanation of most things there are to know about the mechanics of stock investing including useful websites to surf.

Investors Business Daily (IBD) is a solid daily resource (and its complement, ). It’s a better newspaper than the Wall Street Journal and it is built around a particular approach to trading. You could read _How to Make Money in Stocks_ by William O’Neil too–he’s the founder of IBD.

Search your local library for other books on stock investing. Try to absorb as much knowledge and understanding as you can.

After you have extensively researched and gained a solid foundation/education then look to open a brokerage account and paper trade–this is trading with play money before you put real capital at risk. You should do extensively before you eventually place your first trade live. Your early live trades should be with a very small position size. Only increase position size when you have done well to limit losses when the market has turned against you.

How do you make a silk screen ?

In High School, we had an assignment to immitate a famous painter..I chose Andy Warhol (im a big Marilyn Monroe fan). Well, my art teacher did the silk screen for me & id love to know how she did it, what materials she used for it & what surfaces I can use it on.. (besides paper & t-shirts)
Also, can I take a photo I took myself & convert it into a silk screen to put on a shirt? Now……How do I do that?

John answers:


There is some silk screening supplies available from various art stores. Usually, you can use an existing clean screen, and use a photoemulsion fluid and a black image printed on a transparent mylar material, like Duralar and expose it so that the light exposed liquid is fixed, and the non-light exposed areas wash away and leave open screen areas. There are small fairly inexpensive kits for this available from craft stores like Michaels and Joanns with a screen, photoemulsion fluid, and some basic inks.

For a general description of how to tranfer an image to a surface, once you’ve got your image on the screen, you get whatever ink you want, and lay a line of it across the top, and lay the screen over what you want to print on, and with a squeegee, drag an even layer of ink across the top so the ink gets down in the open spaces of the screen. If coverage from the first pass appears to have missed some spots, drag another layer, but be careful not to force too much through the screen.

To get more than one color, either have more than one screen available with the next image, and repeat the coloring process. Usually, to line up the images, you can use registration marks or like a clamping station setup for like a 4 color tshirt.

To work up an existing image to print, you just take the general shapes and you might be able to do this on a pc using a program like CorelDraw, or manually.

Go to DIY to find sample projects for silk screening. I went to their main webpage, and clicked on the crafts tab, and then looked for ‘silk screening’ and found a lot of projects that showed photos of silk screening steps.

Also, there is sort of a cool little product for silk screening called PhotoEz. These are just little silk screens that you can make one image from. Check out the PhotoEz site to see some examples of it and how to use it. Also, Dharma Trading should have some silk screening supplies for fabrics. I know I’ve seen an apparatus for a 3 or 4 color tshirt silk screening station there. You may also want to check out an online artist community, wetcanvas, because there may be artists who do a lot of silk screening that might provide some advice for you, too. Basic membership is free there, and there are currently more than 95,000 worldwide members.

Hope this helps and at least gives you a little more information and direction. 🙂
