Skate Decks

Postby madmanyoni » Thu Oct 14, 2010 12:34 am

Ok, simple question...

I'm looking into printing skateboards, but I'm not sure which ink to use. I've seen a few options around the web, mostly Nazdar (9700,7200,59000). Which of these would you recommend that I print with on a blank wood deck?

I use Nazdar 2700. it is water based, safe, and fairly easy to use and clean up. If you are screening more then 10-15 boards I would add a some thinner. the hardest part of using it is keeping it from drying in the screen. it is nothing like plastisol. it will dry within minutes if you dont flood your screen after each pull. same with clean up. as soon as you recover your ink from your screens, hit the screen with windex to keep the ink from drying. if you do this, you can hit it with a garden hose and clean the screen with little effort. I but it direct from http://www.sourceoneonline.com. I havnt tried any other Nazdar since I am doing this for me and my friends. I know some board manufactures that still screen use some of the other Nazdar inks but I havnt messed with them since I am doing this out of the garage and dont want to deal with smell and chemicals!

these were all done with Nazdar 2700 http://bikeage51.tripod.com/screenin

let me know if you need anything else.

Awesome. I've seen some stuff about 2700 but wasn't sure it was right for the job. I usually print shirts with water based so I assume clean up is mostly the same except for the drying out of the ink. I'm likely going to print at most 1-2 boards at a time, so I'll keep your tips in mind.

Thanks
