    Default Preferred Water Based Graphic Ink?

    Hello, all! we would like to know your observations from experience with water based graphic inks. We are a small print shop in DC and we are looking for possible companies or distributors that are near by so we can receive our shipments quickly without blood sucking shipping costs... so, please help us out! We'd really like to use TW inks, since they are so highly recommended, but they only ship from California. Speedball is a definite no, so don't bother posting anything about that crap, haha! Thanks for taking a moment to help a newbie!

    Ok, thank you! Just looking for some more options, or are there only these two companies?

    If you want TW then you are going to pay for it. Otherwise, what RGT said.

    There are many threads devoted to this topic already. In them you will find I prefer TW Graphics.

    speedball & union are both alright. i've used a lot of jacquard/versatex inks that have worked well, but i have since seen the light. TW wins!

    if you are starting, use speedball. much more forgiving/easy to clean, and way cheap/available.

    there was some other thread i just saw yesterday talking about matsui. Rookies need to learn to READ and SEARCH. otherwise, go buy TW. It's where you will end up.

    I don't know if you know this but you lucky citizens of Americas have got TW Graphics water based inks. In Europe the partner of the TW Graphics is Kiian and basically the product codes are the same too but Kiian hasn't got water based inks (not for textile!)
