Re: wet-on-wet printing question

We have been running into issues with inks bleeding when printing on an under base (no halftones). White is on a 110, other colors on 230 mesh. The first 2 overprint colors print fine, but 3 or more...

Re: Water based Ink printing vs. Other methods

Re: WaterBased or Plastisol for UNION WORKER TEES

I would use waterbased if they are willing to pay a bit more for it. Be sure to sell the comfort factor. Also, plastisol will eventually deteriorate after a certain number of washes. Durability of...

Re: Rent by the hour - our shop is your shop...

Firstly, you must know your monthly overhead expenses (utilities, labor, rent, ink, supplies, etc.). Once you have that total, divide it by 160 (4 weeks x 40 hr work week). For instance, if your...

Re: Will this be difficult to print with water based inks

Re: right amount for design competition

You would probably be better off finding a reputable designer and having them create a design for you. The problem with competitions, as mentioned, is that compensation is uncertain, so little...

Re: Waterbase inks for printing paper

We use waterbased inks to print on cardboard boxes and flatstock. These inks don't dry up in the screen near as fast as acrylic inks.
