What is a good company to buy paint from?

Can you list a bunch of names?

Whats the diff between plastinol and water-soluble?

I just need to print very small logo designs for tags on my shirts....

TIA

wellll...

we buy union ink, i like them.

plastisol- needs to cure at a surface temp of 400 degrees-ish, needs special ink remover, stays wet and doesn't clog screens nearly as easily, cannot be mixed with water.

acrylic (water based)- can be cleaned with soap and water, screens clog easy because the ink dries rapidly, can only be printed on very light colors, can be air dried (but we still cure ours to lock them into the fibers better).

those are the basic differences.

You can get opaque waterbased ink (i.e. you can print on black).
