Ink and curing combination.

Posted on Wed, 14 Jul 2004 at 1:12



I've just started getting into screen printing and I am planning on doing a small run (50 shirts) to sell at an arts and crafts sale. I'm not sure what type of ink I should use. Should I use water-based or plastisol ink? If I only have access to an iron and a heat gun which would be better to use with the correct ink? I'm looking for something that will be reasonably durable and not too time-consuming.

Thanks,
Geoff
