Screen printing inks
Comments about Jacquard Screen Printing Inks:
The ink consistency varies a little from color to color but I add a little distilled water and extender to my ideal dilution. I use a gram scale to measure out the colors and a hand drill mixing attachment for best results.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect for printing on dark fabrics
from Cincinnati, Ohio
I print textiles and needed an opaque ink that didn't require a white base to overprint. These inks are amazing. They maintain their color on even the darkest fabrics I need to print on. They don't smell bad either. A lot of other inks I have tried had a stronger odor. I will definitely be buying these again.

Really easy to mix custom color and apply on fabric. Does work better for screen printing not as easy for stamping with lino cuts.
Love this ink

I use jacquard ink for screenprinting. The inks hold well and when mixed will give you an array of colors. They print well on dark colors.

Jacquard ink is a terrible option for paper
By Dusty Dog
from The South
I'm repeating some other reviews about use on paper but:Jacquard ink is always way too thick right out of the jar (white is almost like mortar). How do you thin it? I have used water. Is this correct? Who knows? The company says it doesn't need thinning. Maybe not, if you're using a 12 count mesh.In spite of company claims, Jacquard ink begins drying in the screen the instant you put it on. Spots on the paper from drying are usually on the first print and definitely on the second or third print. This can be a very serious problem for any of us using $6 or $8 a sheet paper.I have had success with Speedball acrylic ink on paper. They have an additive to stop quick drying in the screen. I will be going back to Speedball ink. Jacquard ink is NOT GOOD on paper.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Use these with special attention.
By Citizen Ken
from Brooklyn, NY
Jacquard metallic inks are wonderful and look fantastic, In my experience however, using metallic inks requires a special attention to process. For Jacquard metallic inks do not use a mesh count higher than 156. Also, be wary that this kind of ink dries faster. Keep extender on hand. This is a quality product and Jacquard has a metallic for every color of the spectrum. These inks just require extra care.

My preferred ink for fabric Screenprinting
By Fabric screenprinter
Great ink for fabric printing- soft hand and short heat set time.
from spokane, wa
these inks work great for screen printing on paper.
problems with this product for paper
I was looking forward to using this product encountered some really big problems relating to screening paper surfaces. It may be okay for textile use, okay for t-shirts. On paper, it dries into a layer of PVC vinyl, not good. The best thing about the ink is that it cleans up very easily, like acrylic paint.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. It sounds like your application would benefit from a higher mesh count screen. We invite you to call our Product Information Team at 1-800-933-2542 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. They'll be happy to discuss this product and how to use it to its best advantage.
