printing on foam

Posted on Mon, 21 Jun 2004 at 17:54



We are undertaking our first job printing on crushable foam visors. Since traditional plastisol inks won't suit because the heat to cure them would melt the visors, where do I go for air-dry inks that will stick to the foam?

Try screening on transfer paper and THEN use a hat heat press to actually apply to the foam.
When I was in the shirt / hat printing business I began utilizing this technique A LOT, and found it saved me a WHOLE BUNCH of mistakes.
