Combining various white inks?
« on: October 13, 2022, 10:09:34 AM »
I have an assortment of white inks from various companies in gallon containers that I'd love to mix together and use on cotton tees just to get it outta here.
Good or bad idea?

I would make sure the inks where all designed to do the same thing 100% cotton, 50/50, poly etc before I would mix them, I've mixed small amounts on runs with no problems as far as I know ;)

We used to mix International coatings legacy white with epic top score to make our white for 50/50. It may not be the right thing to do but we have had great results with it..LOL

Some of our best running whites have been a hodge podge of whites mixed together.
