I have been asked if I could print on some of those eco. friendly bags. I said I should be able to, but I am not sure of the best way to do it. I am a screen printer. Can I do it this way, and how would I go about curing the ink? Long or shorter than a shirt? I am probably going to use my flash dryer.

I also have a heat press and an ink jet printer. Would this work also?
Which way would be better, or is there a better way?

Thanks in advance.

Screen printing is the best way. Depending on the material of the eco bags, you can most likely use Plastisol or Waterbased inks. The length of time to cure is not important, but rather how high the temperature of the ink. This will depend on the distance of your flash dryer, and how hot it gets.

I have used plastisol for the eco bags. I did about 500 of them a few weeks ago with no issue. I'm sure vinyl would work too .... JB

There's also a specific polypropylene ink available; ask your supplier if they stock anything suitable.
