I bought a portable hopkins 4 color manual to print live at shows- but I'm wondering if I can get away with just flash drying them? or is there a better way?

are there better inks to use that would be better suited than plastisol?

Let me know if anyone has any input... I just want to retain quality and have some fun printing live...

I would think most would go with plastisol transfers and a heat press in these situations... but if I was going to print on demand I would probably just use a flash to cure them.

I just did one in Dallas for St. Pattys Day. I brought my screens and a small flash dryer with me and built a 1 color press the night before the venue(home depot $28). Just make sure you cure it at 320 for 25 seconds and you'll be fine. Plus the crowd loved the show and a few wanted to print their own. It's a lot more exciting than a heat press and I think that helped with biz. Good luck and bring a temp gun.
