Printing On Polythylene Rain Ponchos. Any Ink recommendations?
« on: February 27, 2018, 03:08:25 PM »
I have a customer that is persistent on printing these ponchos.  1 Color imprint, but Im not sure what Ink would work on these.  Any Thoughts?

First stop to check out inks for anything different than the fabrics you're used to should be Nazdar.
That rug really tied the room together, did it not?

How did it work out? I called and asked Augusta and they said they do not recommend printing on these. I have an order in house for them now and just told my customer they would have to be blank.

held up fine! Took a while to dry though.

So I called Nazdar, and I gave told them what I was printing on.
They recommended the DA Series ink with a catalyst.

Go figure my client want 600 of these done in 2 days.  Id have to overnight the ink, and turn my shop into a big dry room.  Needless to say, we passed on the job...
