Welcome to dickblick
These versatile, ready-to-use inks are ideal for silk screening, stenciling, and block printing. All colors are intermixable and can be thinned with water. Though heavily pigmented, Versatex will not change the texture or softness of the fabric being printed.
Versatex semi-transparent inks are most luminous on light colored fabrics. Beautiful transparent overlays can be achieved with the use of a clear color extender. For permanency and washfastness, fabrics must be heat-set.
These inks will not wrinkle or bleed on paper. For best results, use cotton rag papers suitable for serigraphy.
Mix clear Extender with Versatex Screen Printing Inks to increase transparency without altering the ink's texture or consistency.
Screen Life slows drying when mixed with Versatex screen printing inks. It preserves water retention to give you a longer working time when printing. Screen Life is especially helpful during long print runs or when printing in hot and dry conditions. It also aids in screen cleaning.

yikes.. not for block printing
from long beach
Comments about Jacquard Versatex Screen Printing Inks:
i bought the opaque white. the instructions state that this product can be used for block printing. i used it with a linoleum block onto black fabric. i stand on the block since i don't have a press, get off, and voila! less than a fading whisper of an image! in fact only the very edge of the last corner that i inked up even attempted to appear. 99% of the image did not transfer. i can tell that what happened was that it dried in the minute that it took me to ink up the block. i should have known this would happen because when i got some ink on my fingers when opening the jar it dried up like gesso in some seconds. this is so bad that i have to figure i must be doing something wrong? it cannot be that a product that blick sold me is this bad? but still i am super discouraged.i am possibly going to try screen printing it and see if it is any better. will update review if it works in that capacity. i hope i'm not wasting money running around different techniques to get my project done >.<

Great product for classroom use.
By Marcy high school art educator
from Fort Wayne Indiana
I am a high school art educator. I use the 3.8 liters for silk-screen projects. The larger size much appreciated as I work toward accommodating large amounts of students. Prints and stores great!
from nope, CA
It's the only screen printing I've used. Since it's for merchandise that I sell, once I find something that works I stay with it. I can't really compare it to anything else, but it works very well.
I would buy this product again and again

We use the Versatex ink to print on boxes. It goes on smooth and is easy to apply.
The Best Inks!

Versatex is the best ink I've found for screen printing (their other inks are great, too!). The selection at Dick's is unmatched and the price is right.

Not what I was hoping for
The product was really thin and did not stick to my stamp making a terrible print
Merchant response: We are sorry to hear that this ink did not work well with your stamps. If you find the ink body thin, you can pour some out onto a palette or in a cup and allow it to sit until the thickness suits your liking. Our Product Experts are happy to assist you with any of your product or technical questions. You can reach us by phone at 1.800.933.2542 or email us at email@example.com.
Great product - Great service!
This product is great for screen printing on both paper and fabric. It always produces a vibrant color!
from Buena Vista, Virginia
This product is great because it can be used on fabric or paper. I used to buy separate inks, but this has the versatility to make two purchases unnecessary. I use it with stenciled screen prints over collages, on t-shirts, and paper.
