    Default questions about flo. inks

    I had a few questions about flo inks, I've had a couple of posters printed with them and like em.

    1. Can you mix your own flo colors or do you basically have to stick with the bucket colors? What happens to a flo color when you mix white with it?

    2. Do they fade alot over time, like more than normal inks?

    we mix our own flow puple and flo red on a weekly basis. so yes.

    when you mix white with a flo blue say galaxy blue you get the blue on your TMBG poster.

    I don't know how much they fade.

    not all colors, some get kinda muddy.

    flo black is no problem at all.

    I think most of franks poster colors were based on flo inks.

    I could be wrong though.

    That's one of the things that makes Andy a legend. He's the only one able to print with flourescent black. You should see flo. black under a blacklight, you'll go blind if you stare to long.
