Tips for Screen Printing with White Ink

Printing with white inks can be challenging, especially during the colder months of the year.

In this post, we'll discuss some things you can do to help make printing with white ink a little less difficult. 

  • Increase the temperature of the ink. Place it on your conveyor or flash dyer, but use caution; if you leave it there, it may cure in the container.
  • Use a lower mesh count. Lower mesh counts have less threads and more open area for ink to flow through.
  • Add curable reducer. Reduce the viscosity of your white ink with a curable reducer. It will be thinner and easier to get through the screen mesh.
  • Warm your pallets before starting production. Warm pallets will heat up your ink and make it easier to work with.

We hope these tips help you to create awesome prints with white ink.
