i screen print on t-shirts and other fabric all the time, but i haven't done cardstock or paper yet, and i really want to. what kind of ink and drying techniques do you guys use? i have some waterbased ink, but it's for textiles so i haven't used it on paper. there's probably ink just for paper but i have no idea where to start. recommendations, tips, advice, comments?
I'm curious: where are you guys located? How much access do you have to screen printing supplies? I'm in San Jose, CA and I usually make runs to Hayward for my supplies, which is about 30-40 minutes away. Do most of you get supplies online and at art stores?
There are special solvents you can buy that are just for plastisol ink, but I use mineral spirits or paint thinner. Water wont even wash plastisol off my hands so it probably wont work, and I was advised once not to use water because it might mess it the emulsion up (I actually have no idea if that's true or not, but I don't take risks).
