Hi guys

Has anyone printed onto cardboard?

I've had a customer ask about printing their logo to cardboard boxes!

Anyone got any advice on this?

Can you just print using normal plastisol ink?

Thanks

I have used acrylic, but yeah, whatever ink you want.

I have printed plastisol onto paper, and ran it through the dryer the exact same as a t-shirt with great success. That is what I would do, fire the boxes through the conveyor. {Testing the results to make sure the heat doesn't warp the box, of course. } My project was for my brothers wedding invites. the result was perfect, with the plastisol taking a kind of glossy finish.

Good luck!

Use waterbased ink for boxes. Speedball acrylic inks are good for this if you don't stock waterbased inks for printing shirts. For plastic bags check with Nazdar for the proper ink. Might help to find out what kind of plastic it is. Plastisol won't stick to plastic bags.
