I would say if you dont know what it is and have know idea just tell the customer you cant do it. Why would you want to go through the headaches? Do you do your own printing or do you sub it out. I can talk to your printer and let them know about non- PVC ink if you really want the job.

OK, this is getting weird.

First, Chris, what ink and substrate are you talking about? Be specific. I have customers who print PVC materials, there are vinyl inks....but I don't think that is what you are talking about....

I'm assuming it is t-shirts and 'non-pvc' means the new range of inks that are 'phalite free' -sorry if I'm spelling this wrong.

EU countries are coming down on traditional plastisols because they carry pvc materials, so new inks have been formulated. There are articles and info about this out there. I don't print shirts, so I don't care enough to have gotten into this. I've read a bunch of stuff in Printwear and Promotion in the UK.

An easy solution for shirts (and customers who are into lowtox) is to use waterbase if your customer is on this 'non-pvc' kick.

I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to locate a few of the companies that are producing the new platisol type inks that are PVC free, they advertise them as such.

Linda, I don't understand why someone should not learn about something new, you sound like these inks are radioactive or something. If you know something why not share it?

It's just screen ink people, it prints through the mesh, it either air drys, heat cures, or cooks under UV. Not too hard to do.

Yeah Bob, I was going to talk to the manager here.

Maybe we can get the waitress to move our discussion to another table in the other section.

Can you believe it? the nerve of some people, posting in the wrong category.

(this is where I would post one of those smiley thingies so you know I'm kidding and don't get all worked up over an email)
