Hi Michael and :welcome: I love your user id name... funny... :)

Anyway, your ink problems. Have you done a search on your brand of ink yet? Did you find anything? Sometimes a Q like yours can be overlooked in the member intros. The best way to find an answer is to give a post a really direct title, like "How can I stop my ink XYZ from washing out?". If you haven't found the info you seek in current posts, I'd say going to the screen printing section and post a Q like that. Good luck to you, hope you get it solved.

Micheal.

If your inks are washing out that means the inks aren't being cured properly. Are you flashing? and what type of dryer are you using? If your using a dryer slow the belt down to properly dry. Hope this helps.

Thanks

Hi Kelly ive had this name for four years now.I got it by teaching it to my best friend's two year old son. Just to get at the Grand Parents. Since then James my friend has made me use it. I dont mind it though it kinda stuck with me anyways. But Thank you for the advice. I havent searched for the ink, but I will. Ill also check the other post, and post my Q in a more direct forum.
Thanks, Michael
