Screen Printing Tee Shirts: Inexpensive High Opacity Light Blue Plastisol Ink

Here’s the 2nd to last video in our plastisol ink series with high opacity plastisol inks. I have one more left to go featuring a royal blue ink. I think next week we will begin a new tee shirt giveaway with the latest Catspit design. I’m thinking of having people send in post cards so I can easily pick winners out of a box or something. Maybe I will request a post card featuring your State or something like that. That way it will make it easier for me to gather the ship to addresses since the post card should have a return address. I’ll be sure to make that one of the requirements….

We now have a nice selection of colors in plastisol textile inks. This is an inexpensive ink with high performance results. I’m carrying mostly gallons in different colors with quarts in select colors. I actually have to quart the ink myself and label them so I’m trying to offer as many colors in quarts as I can in Phoenix. Here’s the pricing for the economy standard black and white inks. As you can see the gallons are the best value since this ink is so competitively priced. This has excellent performance, great pricing and it’s thinner than most other plastisol inks. Try them today with a full money back satisfaction guarantee. I have 6 new videos about the phthalate free high opacity colors of this same plastisol ink. I decided to do a bonus shot in this video showing the ink printed with a one hit wonder AND a print/flash/print. I wanted to not only show how well the inks work but I wanted to prove you can print the same or more ink volumes without flashing. There is definitely a difference in the finished print surface but the opacity is pretty much the same. So now I have 2 sample shirts in the Phoenix storefront which you can come in and see in person in order to view the quality of my inexpensive plastisol ink line. And you can see in person the wicked amount of ink I can print with these thinner high opacity inks without flashing. Check out the video for our fast flash white below.

Buying Screen Printing Equipment With Credit Card Fee Charges? Shipping Fees? Sales Tax?

I’m a smaller screen printing equipment and supplies dealer but I have some of the best deals around on equipment. Most sellers of equipment charge you a credit card processing fee and shipping on their equipment. Catspit Productions never charges credit card processing fees and we offer free shipping on all major Ranar purchases within the continental USA. And because we are a smaller dealer we don’t have to charge you sales tax on any equipment order unless you’re in California. Doh! Dang those California laws😉 Check out some of the reasons why you’ll not only save money on equipment with Catspit Productions but you’ll also be getting screenprinting equipment sold by an actual former screen printer. Not just a salesman. I actually know the ins and outs of screen printing and I share my experience with you when helping you buy equipment. Honest, straight forward and I never try to sell you things you don’t really need. That’s the Catspit difference.

Sometimes doing business with a smaller company has its sales tax benefits.

Free shipping on all major equipment purchases – FREE SHIPPING on equipment purchases! We offer free shipping anywhere in the continental United States on all equipment purchase over $100. That’s right! Our major discount incentive saves you hundreds if not thousands on shipping your equipment to you. We’re the only Ranar dealer in the US to offer free shipping all year round. You don’t have to wait for a sale to save on freight.

Screenprinting Shirts: How Long Does It Take To Cure Plastisol Inks?

Okay I hope this video is not redundant but I wanted to make it easy for people to Google this…. LOL😉 My shoulder is getting better but I’m still not allowed to pick up anything more than an 8 ounce bottle of water. I’m hoping to be able to resume printing videos in a few weeks. I have a couple that I am over due to complete. But in the meantime enjoy this quick tips video.

Here is another educational screenprinting video about curing plastisol textile inks. I know I have addressed this in many ways in other videos but I get the question, “how long does it take to cure plastisol inks?” almost daily. If you have ever asked this question, then this video will really explain the deal with the curing of plastisol inks on fabrics. Here you will learn about how to properly use the infrared temperature gun to see if your shirts are fully cured and ready for the customer. I explain how the temp gun works and how to get the correct cure temperature reading from the ink in the oven chamber. If you’re in the market to buy a belt dryer, this video will also help when you’re asking about the ratings of shirts per hour. Check out this informative tutorial screen printing video and learn what you need to know about curing plastisol textile inks. You’ll be printing with confidence in no time at all with a little help from Catspit Productions, LLC. Enjoy!

Home Made Air Filtration Unit For Screen Printing Shops

Take a look at this very cool home brew for an air filtration unit. This was made to filter out the lint and spray tacks from the air helping to keep the shop cleaner and healthier. This was made by one of our excellent equipment customers and he sneaked it right under the Ranar Curestar 4000 he bought from Catspit Productions, LLC. I thought this was a great idea and a very cool build. Thanks to Aldin Konjic from ClixMade, LLC for sharing this with us a while back!

Old School Catspit Viewer Artwork For Throwback Thursday

Here’s an old piece of art that one of our YouTube viewers did many years ago when we held an art contest. I don’t recall the contest now and I don’t even know who did this art but yeah….. I’m naked behind a squeegee in the middle of a screen. LOL! I actually like this piece and it always brings a laugh to anyone I show it to so I figured why not share it again online so you might get a chuckle.

Screenprinting T-Shirts: How To Cool Hot Ink At End Of The Belt Dryer

Here is a quick video showing you how to avoid having to buy an expensive cooling fan add on for the end of your belt dryer in the event you are experiencing difficulties with hot plastisol inks. For the most part this really should not be an issue if you’re using a decent plastisol screenprinting ink and not over heating it in the tunnel of the belt dryer. But sometimes people experience such hot ink at the end of the conveyor oven that when it falls into the catch basket the ink folds over on itself and sticks. So if the ink is very hot, glossy, sticky, and gooey or even has bubbles when it comes out of your belt dryer, you will probably want to watch this fun video. But be very sure if you use the DIY trick in this video that you are not blowing any air into the oven chamber at all. That could affect the cure and cause more problems than you want. Therefore, the trick here is to position the fan in such a way that it blows away from the oven chamber. Now see, this is why you should read the video descriptions. Sometimes I put details in here I may have not fully explained in the video….. Enjoy!

Advanced cooling systems from Ranar are available for special applications as well as graphic industrial printing systems. If you need an infrared or UV belt dryer with a special cooling application, just contact us.

Screen Printing Equipment Shipping Out To Customers…

In this photograph you can see a bunch of equipment and supplies going out to a Catspit Productions customer. It’s nice to see the factory crating area busy with my orders getting ready to ship. This is a recent photograph and if we were to see this area of the factory today, it would be filled once again with Catspit equipment orders being crated and boxed for our customers. I’m hoping to ship 3 larger equipment orders before Wednesday this week! Sometimes crating and scheduling can get tricky but we do our best to pack things very well with great accuracy and speed. Most equipment orders ship out within 2 weeks and others take 3 weeks. A huge package might even take a month to get ready to ship. When it takes a month to build and crate, you know that’s a big order😉

Electric Pressure Washer Over Heating Valve Problems During Summer?

These days some industrial electric pressure washers that we use for screenprinting T-shirts come with a special overheat feature. This is usually some kind of replaceable valve that will trip when the water gets too hot in the pressure washer pump. Since the water is cooling the pressure washer as well as being air cooled, if you have hot water running into the unit that can cause problems with the overheating safety valve. Here in Phoenix Arizona sometimes the water can come into the building very hot. I have heard some people say they measured it coming into their home and 97°F. This can be a problem for an industrial electric pressure washer. And that’s exactly why it has this overheating safety valve that will trip and keep the unit from seizing. But what do you do if you have hot water running into your pressure washer?

An easy but perhaps expensive solution would be to buy a water chiller that is similar to the type that is used in a water fountain. That will require some professional installation of course. If you’d rather do a do-it-yourself ghetto version, then check out this photograph of a water cooler that I made out of a 5 gallon bucket with some garden hose. This isn’t the most practical solution but since I only need my pressure washer once in a while when I teach screen printing, it works very well for me.

pressure-washer-cooler

Here is the do it yourself screen printing hack: All you have to do is simply coil a 6 foot garden hose around the inside of a 5 gallon bucket putting it against the wall perimeter. Make sure you curl it into the bucket and out of the bucket in such a way that you can connect it to the pressure washer and the water source keeping most of the length of the hose inside the bucket. You might use a smaller plastic paint bucket or garbage pail to put in the center of the garden hose to help keep it curling up the sides of the bucket. Simply cut the bottom out of that smaller plastic bucket and insert it into the center of the bucket so that the garden hose is between it and the 5 gallon bucket wall. Now all you have to do is fill this pail with ice and some water every time you want to use the pressure washer in the very hot weather conditions. I also inserted a small water fountain pump at the bottom of the bucket so I can pump out the water after the ice melts and everything warms up. That way I can start all over again with an empty bucket each time I need it. Other than having to buy the ice every time you want to use it, it works very well for a ghetto do-it-yourself solution.

Throwback Thursday Vintage Screenprinting Photo Slideshow

I thought it would be cool to share this photograph of me screenprinting in my brother’s garage shop when I was about 16 years old. This shop was in the garage of our house and you can see my brother standing next to me and my mother in the background. This is back in the days when we did things very old school and we even made our own screens with wood. Honestly, the screens we made were bad and I would’ve given anything for the metal screens that we have today….. lol.

Sparkles Shop 1988

This is just one photograph of a few that we talk of the garage shop and there is in fact a video slideshow on YouTube.com for you to enjoy. Check out the link below.
