Screen Print Underbase + DTG Colors

Mon Mar 27, 2017 4:34 pm

I'm wondering if anybody here ever tried to print with success with DTG colors over a white screen printed underbase.
I had good results with plastisol + ecosolvent inks then I tried with a water  but colors don't have adherence.
I see on internet someone is selling this kind of hybrid system so I think it should be actually possible.

I've done it in the past and used it with my Belquette mod 1 at the time.

You can put additives in some plastisols to make it work but the best is to get waterbased white screen print ink.

I had great wash results and cured in screen print dryer.

You will need a smooth top platen that can go from your screen press to the dtg
