Default "No Hand" Plastisol?

I've got someone interesting in a spot color on white cotton napkins.

What's important for this perticular job is having no-hand to the ink.

Is this a job possible for plastisol? If there's any feel to the ink they're not going for it.

you might want to try waterbase or sublimation. Plastisol will leave a thicker ink film.

I don't know if they make anything that will give you no hand but Rutland has some bases that will give a very soft hand.

I agree with Creative Pile. Go with water base. It's really pretty simple.

You might have to buy a different emulsion, depending on what you normally use.

The biggest trick to remember is keep that screen flooded!
