Looking for all brands of water based inks.

Postby campiesie » Mon Jun 07, 2010 7:26 pm

I am starting up a screen printing business next year. I am experienced enough with screen printing, and feel comfortable with it to the point that I am confident I can start a business of my own. However, I only know of a few brands of water based inks, and am looking for more to find the one best for me. If anyone can find me a list, or make list for me, of as many ink companies that offer water based inks that would be great.

Can't find the link to the shop vid someone did, but they used the ink and left it in the screen for a hour at lunch and the ink had not drayed, they claimed it stays usable for 2-3 hours in the screen, don't know if its true but it looks interesting. Its a GEN4 product line made by international coatings, check it out. I am trying out water base but the dry factor changes the rules and darks are an issue also. This product is also has opacity and they printed a shirt with it, white on black, and only needed 2 passes. If you run across it post the link I would like to see it again. I ran across it researching water based.

We use Matsui's pigment system, works well for us. You'll need to put a little investment into a good scale that reads .01 of a gram.
