Default Best Ink for 60/40 blend.

I am brand new. My press in not even in yet. I gave been using vinyl, and on large orders, platisol transfers. My most popular shirt is Next Level N6210. I have an upcoming order of 400 shirts, in Charcoal. Any opinions on best ink for dark color 60/40 blend shirts. Any help is greatly appreciated.....will be 2 colors, white, and Burgandy.

if you are going to decorate 60/40 blend charcoal garments with screen printed plastisol heat transfers I would suggest using a transfer that has been backed with a powdered adhesive. The adhesive backing will help block shirt dye migration and provide addition adhesion. Call heat transfer manufacturers and ask for their advice and for free transfer samples. Since you are a Newbie I would strongly suggest you test before you press 400 shirts. Press, Stretch and Launder! If you encounter a problem please STOP PRESSING and call you printer! Speaking from 45+ years of industry experience... Good Luck!

Thanks for the help. This Is a repeat order, last time I used Stahlls Transfer express. I was thinking that I would try screen printing this timearound. But after loads of research, it appears transfers may be the best option, as I do not have a tunnel dryer yet.

You may have issues with dye migration using lighter color inks on charcoal. Consider using a low-bleed ink formulated for polyester.
