Hey all,

I have a design that I am trying to print and ran into a little issue... I am printing on a white shirt, and am in need of an offwhite ink. I considered mixing in a little tan with the white but i want it to be consistant throughout all of my shirts. Do you know anywhere I can purchase an off white ink?? I cant seem to find it anywhere!

If you have a scale, measure out a quantity of white ink by weight, then reset the scale and add your tan or whatever ink you use, in small, measured increments, until you arrive at the color you want. Add up the combined measured weights of tan, and figure the proportion of that total to the weight of the white, and you should be able to remix the exact color anytime you want. I use a digital postal scale I bought at Office Depot to mix ink, and it's accurate enough. It won't do fractions of grams, but for the jobs I do, if you're mixing up a half pound of ink, a tenth of a gram isn't going to make enough difference.
