    Default WB inks on Drink Koozies?

    I came across a box of blank neoprene koozies for free and can use plastisol, but I kinda hate the stuff.

    Is it gonna come off when I jump in the lake with my beer? The idea of using a flash dryer on a neoprene koozie isn't very appealing, but i'll do it if I need to.

    I always use plastisol heat transfer sheets for koozies. I dunno about the wb based stuff.

    I'm pretty sure you have to ask for the catalyst as well if you don't want to have to heat set them, but It's been a while and I can't remember.

    The catalyst comes with each purchase, or at least it does for me.

    Just use Plastisol, it should flash dry in a few seconds. No one washes those things anyways . . . the lake won't hurt it.

    1/8" thick piece of sheet metal is what I use for a platen when I printed Koozies . . . it was easy to load, and because it was really thin is maximized the image area

    When I was printing t shirts, I always wanted to make an aluminum platen to print up koozies 8 or so at a time with a 20x24 screen.
