We print on plastic license plates at my shop. For all of our printing needs we are using Nazdar's S2 vinyl ink. We have yet to experience any problems with this ink. Of course you do need to know what type of plastic you have. Nazdar will definitly be able to help you with that. If you are unable to get the nessacery information about the type of plastic being printed then I would reccomend S2 ink as a starting point in your testing. Print, cure (will air dry in 15-20min. or force cured at 150 degrees very quickly), and use a "cross-hatch" test on the final part. Other inks that I have used for plastic purposes include: 9700 series ink, 5900 enamel (good for outdoor use if it adheres), Enthone 70 series inks. Good luck.

I am looking to get some plastic cups printed and will try to do it myself. I have silk screened before but not on plastic. What would I need or should I just take it somewhere?

Only looking to get 12-15 plastic cups done.

Thanks
