Printing on leather?
« on: November 05, 2019, 09:30:15 AM »
  Without doing a lot of research, what ink would I use to print on genuine leather? I have NazDar S2, 7200 and 9600 series inks and their catalysts available. I'll probably just call NazDar unless any of you good people know off hand what to use.

9600 Series SV Polyester Screen Ink from Nazdar, a world leading ... rubber, polycarbonate, melamine plastics, leather and some coated and uncoated metals.

They've always made it pretty easy to search by substrate, and sometimes will even test a sample of an odd material for you.
That rug really tied the room together, did it not?
