Welcome to dickblick
Blick's inks are made for printing on light-colored T-shirts, and other cotton or cotton blend fabrics, linen, rayon, polyester, and most other synthetics, except nylon.
They are non-toxic, non-flammable, safe for school use. These inks may also be applied with a brush to tennis shoes, tote bags, sweats, etc. and they work well on paper products, too.
We recommend this ink for screened artwork or printmaking. For best results, we strongly recommend pre-washing garments and pre-testing the color before starting a production run.
Recommended screen fabric is 74-124 mesh monofilament or 6XX to 10XX multifilament. After printing, allow to dry, then heat set with a household iron at medium heat for 3 minutes on each side or at 300°F in an oven for 3 minutes. After heat setting, garments are machine washable.
Clean screens and squeegees with soap and water. We recommend using Speedball Diazo Photo Screen Printing Emulsions as a stencil for this ink (for short runs) or solvent-adhering (water-resistant) hand-cut films.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Good product at a great price
from Thunder Bay, Ontario
First time ordering from Blick's and it was a great experience. Great prices on their branded screen printing ink and very fast shipping. The product is very good as well. I use a different brand for most projects but needed something a little more cost-effective for other projects. The colours are nice and bright on cotton and wash well once heatset.
Great color choices
from Franklin Park, IL
Great coverage for printing our t-shirts. Smooth ink texture. Haven't yet tried to wash the shirts yet to test the ink's durability.
Perfect product for my project.

I use this product with my students and it is very economical and easy to clean.
By Mrs. Atkins
from Milledgeville, Georgia
This product has proven to be a very good one. Size is great, it lasts a long time, and it's also easy to use. It's odorless, and dries very fast. I would suggest it for any beginner. I use this ink to stencil fabrics, on a daily basis. Drying time is almost immediately with a heating agent.

Best product per teachers...
By Art Supply Campaigner
from Plainsboro, NJ
I ordered this product as part of a school supply campaign for local teachers. They were told they could order anything they needed for art instruction. By default, this must be a great product since any brand could have been selected.

I really like the white ink and use it often for printing on dark garments. Also works fine on paper!
from Austin, Texas
I bought the fluorescent magenta. Gave it a good stir with a wide popsicle stick. Used on a 160 mesh count screen. It was enough to print a 10"x10" inch design onto 120 shirts. There was enough ink left over to cover a couple dozen more. I liked the price point of the ink, saved a couple of dollars over the other name brand water based ink. I didn't find anything wrong with the product, worked as it should. I would purchase again. I am not a professional screen printer. Followed the basics on screen printing. Keep the screen flooded so that ink would not dry in your screen. There were instances where the squeegee would fall into the ink and had plenty of time to walk away and come back without the ink drying. Keep a pair of moist sponges handy, helped with keeping fingers clean while handling t-shirts.
