IC makes good stuff--IMO, their navy, royal, and reds have the best pigments for the money. If I'm underbasing, I prefer it to the maxopake, but of course, overprinting isn't what that stuff is made for.

I keep thinking maybe you got hosed on some of that Maxopake Tom--although sometimes it's a little thick, it's usually temp related. I guess in FL, that ink won't stay too cool over the summer. Heck, it's just now going back down to 90 or so during the day here...

For me which brand of ink to use or that is better than another depends on the job at hand. I prefer Wilflex, however, if I need to print a hot pink on a dark shirt then I use Union's maxopake Aurora pink. It's very opake and I don't need an underbase. Company's offer different inks for certain applications or effects. So it's a matter of which will do the best for that particular job. Hope this helps.

I swear by Union Maxopake Inks and you can not go wrong with their Brite Cotton White for printing on Black. Best for me by far! Just wish they had a Tan or Flesh color because that is the only color I have to look elsewhere for and i have yet to find a Ink that color I do not have to use reducer for.

Wilflex epic. Qcm second, but always get little pigment flakes, which means on an auto issues in cleaning the dingleberry off and stopping.
