Hi there! I've been working up heinous plots to print my own t-shirts... but, the thing is, I like having options. Speedball fabric ink comes in, like, ten colors. My question is this: can screenprinting inks be mixed? Black + white = grey, blue + yellow + yellow = lime green, and the like?

Yep! Mix and match all you want!
Just make enough so that you don't run out. You will almost never be able to match your creation perfectly with a second batch of ink. Use the extras on a small run or mix it with something else later.
I store my extra ink in leftover yogurt or butter containers. Just put a piece of plastic wrap between the cup and the lid and you're good to go for a few months.
Enjoy Smiley
