Welcome to dickblick
Speedball Waterbased Fabric Screen Printing Inks are great for use on light-colored cotton, linen, blends, polyester, rayon, and other synthetic fibers (except nylon). Use the process colors for 4-color process printing. The inks can also be brush-applied to tennis shoes, canvas bags, and more.
Use them with water-resistant hand-cut films or direct emulsions such as Speedball Diazo Photo Screen Printing Emulsions or Speedball Drawing Fluid.
Recommended screen fabric is 74-124 mesh monofilament or 6XX to 10XX multifilament. Clean ink from screens with water. Inks should not be allowed to dry in the screen.
All garments should be pre-washed and the process pre-tested before a production run. After printing, allow to dry and then heat set with a household iron at medium setting for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.

Speedball Ink using Freezer Paper T-Shirt Method
from Kennewick, Wa
Comments about Speedball Water-Base Textile Screen Printing Inks:
I don't use these screen printing inks for screen printing. I use my cricut to cut a stencil out of freezer paper. I put parchment paper inside the t-shirt so the ink doesn't come through to the other side of the t-shirt. Then I iron that shiny side down onto a t-shirt. I make sure all of the edges are ironed down good so the ink cannot bleed underneath them. I then proceed to take out my paint brush and dab the paint on. Do not make up and down strokes along the edges. It may pull up the edges of the freezer paper. The rest of it you can use brush strokes. If you had used words for your shirt you would have to move the inside of the letters over to the shirt and ironed down each one to keep it in place and then iron the whole thing. If you cut your image or words out of the stencil on the shiny down you will not have to mirror it. After you wait about two maybe three hours to make sure the ink is dry you put parchment paper over the painted shirt and iron heat set it. Iron it for about two to three minutes. This way you are able to wash it in the washing machine without the ink coming off. If you cut it out yourself just lift it as is and do not turn it over. The paints are perfect. They just glide on. They are very easy to use. They are not too thick and not too thin. They also go a long way. I used two coats on this shirt. This is my first shirt so it is not the greatest but I will get better. The colors are fun and bright. It makes your project more enjoyable.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a novice.The white and light blue ink preformed acceptably. The Light blue ink on a blaze orange t-shirt looks very dark.You might want to use white then the blue over the top to get a good color.
Great product for screenprinting and excellent service and prices!
Great Item Source

Print t shirts and stocks as well as painting.The ink is a good chemical texture.A ten once can would be nice.
This product is a staple in my printmaking!

Love this product, I use it for screen printing designs on fabric and clothing. It's long lasting on fabric, and they have great color options. The only complaint I could make it that over time (like a year+) certain inks get clumpy and thick, but that's to bet expected, right?

all is good-- love Blick, love the Speedball brand. the ink stains well and is consistent throughout.the only i have is with the packaging. such ink might be better applied with a carton or syringe of some kind-- canisters are just way too messy.
