I've been using Matsui 301 Waterbased inks (purchased from ryonet) for a while now. The transparent inks print great, dry great, etc. When I use their opaque ink on dark paper.. it prints great, but seems to remain slightly tacky..even after staying on the drying rack for a day. It's dry to the touch, but once posters are stacked for any amount of time, the paper starts to stick together. Any ideas? Or suggestions for different poster ink? Thanks!!
Yes I think these are fabric inks that are really intended to be dried temperatures over 300.
What mesh are you printing with? Are you trying to force them dry with a fan? If so don't do that.
Switch ink brands, TW, Speedball, Daler-Rowney system 3
From what I read on the site/told by their employees is that it's suitable for paper/cardboard as well and supposedly will air dry if it's on paper. Otherwise, yes you're right, on fabric they say 300 degree ink temp for curing.. Like I said the transparent inks are no prob, dry quick.. it's the opaque inks. Maybe I'll give TW a try then.. I would think 24 hours on the drying rack would be enough time, wouldn't you think? Thanks for the feedback guys.
