Default IC Ryonet White & Union Ink Lightning Low-Bleed White

Hi guys.

I am getting ready to order some white inks and I want to get some feedback regarding the IC Ryonet White and Union Ink's Low-Bleed White. Both are on special on their websites.

I currently use the Union Ink's Bright Cotton White PADM -1027. I'm satisfied with it. However, I just want to try something else that could be better.

Thanks!
LCE

I recommend IC ryonet white, I really like it.

For a poly white (low bleed) I havent found a winner yet, I did some research and my next try will be Wiliflex white buffalo low bleed.

I find IC poly white to be too plasticy/shiny
and unions low bleed diamond white has a bit of puff in it that I dont care for. Of the 2 I think I prefer the union cause I hate shiny ink.

That's makes it 2 - 0 in favor of Ryonet White. I am placing my order today! Thanks John and Drue.

I dont think either of those is better then the union ultra cotton white. if you are looking for low bleed for poly blends I use triangle phoenix white.

Default Re: IC Ryonet White & Union Ink Lightning Low-Bleed White

Is anyone using the IC Ryonet for both their 100% cotton & their 50/50s (poly)? Or is it JUST for cotton only? How thick is the stuff? I've had a really hard time breaking in other plastisol inks, so frigging lumpy and slow to clear... I think I'm going to give the IC Ryonet a shot as well, but curious if it's really only for cotton. thanks.

I use Ryonet's white and like it alot.
All white inks will be thicker, but, I've got to say that the Ryonet one is not lumpy.
No complaints.

its for cotton, dont use it on 50/50 unless ist a light color. This ink is not suuuper thick, and breaks in real nice, definately not lumpy. You wont be dissapointed.

So what is everyone's favorite (least thick?) white for 50/50? Anything that clears easy and has a good color? Someone else mentioned Wilflex NuWhite? Not sure if that's for cotton or 50/50.

Question Re: IC Ryonet White & Union Ink Lightning Low-Bleed White

I just switched to Union ink and cant get it to go on smooth I thought I might be using the wrong mesh count but I'm using 110 the ink is rough and makes using it a base layer impossible, I'm going back to ryonet but if anyone has any tips of what I'm doing wrong that would be great!! sorry to piggy back on your post

Just ran out of my white ink, looking to buy another 5 gallon pail, I've been using Wilflex Bright Tiger white which I like, but Ryonet has their Ryonet IC white on sale for $199 so that makes their ink about $40 cheaper then Wilflex.

Is Ryonets white matte or glossy?
