How To Screen Print T-Shirts: Dye & Pigment Inkjet Inks For Film Positives

I was pretty busy this week but I managed to make a quick video for you covering a topic we have been discussing of late and one that was requested by a recent caller to the storefront. I hope you find this brief video useful and informative.

This educational video is about the differences between dye based and pigment based inkjet inks. Why do we use pigment based inks? Why do we use dye based inks? Which one works best with water proof film positives? All of these questions and more are answered in this brief summary video about inkjet inks for making film positives. In the industry you may hear that dye based inks are best for making water proof film positives. Technically this may be the case but what does that mean for you if you have a printer with pigment based inks and you don’t want to change out he inks? This is a follow up video to the now popular video about how to make the best spot color film positive. If you have not seen that video we suggest you watch it now and then proceed to continue to watch this video.

How To Create The Best Spot Color Film Positives:

If you watch both of these videos you will be in a better position to make a decision about whether or not to buy an all-black ink system of any kind and if you really need dye based inkjet inks to make a decent film positive. The valuable answers are held within these 2 videos. Enjoy!

  1. Good afternoon,

    I am looking at space for my screen printing equipment. What is the smallest I can work with in square footage????? 500??? Once I get going I would like to work with you in setting up and equipping my shop. I went to a Rayonet seminar in California before you started classes…Was not impressed. Look forward to your response…Peace and love bro

    • Sorry for the late reply. Normally people use the forum, YouTube or website contact us forms. If you have seen any of my older videos in the garage, that was about 500 square feet. My “classes” are really personal one on one training. It’s very intense and a bit of information overload. But I never “sell” during these training sessions like some others. I teach and the pricing reflects that. Feel free to call me anytime to discuss your needs or if you need any help. Thanks for checking out my little old blog. I will be at ISS Long Beach this week.
