has anyone ever printed pressure sensitive vinyl(sticker material) with a water basted ink??? i know nazdar and tw make ink that say laydown on vinyl but hs anyone done it? i am sure its not a wether proof or heavy duty but i am super interested seeing how well it works?
I have seen samples of TW printed on vinyl. They make a catalyst/activator you can add to 5000 that gives it grip. Have I done it? No. Although I have some activator.
I will try a tester this weekend.
I guess I'm chicken to try it and have it screw up, with the solvent based GP ink I use, it always works, always sticks.
we used to do all our sickers in TW w/ activator,it was fine for laying down and non fading , but I noticed if you put the sticker on certain substrates it would wear off or scratch off after a while. others it was fine. Wood, wallets, and stuff that got really hot, not a good idea, but glass, metal, and other plastic it was fine. we use the nasdar multi purpose w/ plenty of ventilation, be really clean and you should be fine.
I've used both the tw graphics ink and latex house paint and found that in most cases the house paint held up against wear and tear where the tw ink scratched right off. As mentioned by bilbur though, it could just be where I put the stickers. I have one on my metal biz card case (tw) where the sticker is hardly recognizable anymore, and one on my cell phone and id card (house paint) which are just a little bit darker from dirt sticking to the stickers. Hope this info helps.
