I actually use a mix of one stroke and rutland only because I don't like a few of rutlands colors consistencies, ultramarine and scarlet in particular. On the flip side I wouldn't give up some of rutlands colors for one strokes such as kelly, m2 yellow.one stroke can be a bit pricey though. I do think the white is over priced, good ink just expensive.
I use a bit of One stroke inks - they have a good line of inks but a bit pricey
I use their specialty inks all the time - they are the best...
metallics, fluorecents, glow in the dark, velvet, baby soft, etc. - Their specialty inks are top notch.
Wow, that's $120 a gallon. For some reason I never see any printers using it here in California, must be the cost and everyone these days is looking for ways to pinch pennies.
I run short runs and sleeves on the manual Hopkins press instead of the M & R Automatics and I hate using thick and sticky low bleed white. You really get a workout with your arms on the larger full chest designs. I spent a lot of time trying different low bleed whites from Wilflex Buffalo White to Union ink Maxopaque to Rutland Lo Bleed and I always go back to using International Coatings 711 LF. It's creamy and it flashes fast. At the show they said they had a new one that's even creamier but a little more expensive. You can get a gallon of IC-711LF from Sericol out of Kansas City for about half that price plus shipping. 1-800-255-4562 They also have the 1100 series athletic colors for mesh jerseys and other poly blends of athletic wear.
