Jacquard Products has come out with a revolutionary new screen printing ink!
Jacquard Professional Screen Printing Inks have good body and screen beautifully with excellent resolution. With a slightly more noticeable, hand they are especially well suited to commercial applications. These inks were designed for all surfaces and are permanent on most. They will not wrinkle paper when screening art prints. Choose from a nice assortment of regular, metallic, opaque and "process" colors.
Extended Open Time: These inks break new ground with a greatly extended open time unmatched by any other ink. This gives you the flexibility to work with more colors and do biggeer runs without the ink drying in the screens.
Permanence: Archival & lightfast these inks are permanent on most non-porous surfaces including: fabric, paper, plastic, vinyl, leather, metal, & more! Fabrics must be heatset for permanence and durability. Once set, the inks are fully washable and dry-cleanable on all natural & synthetic fabrics. Since these stick to almost anything, they are great for linoleum block printing as well. No need to rough up the linoleum.
Washability: Fully washable and dry-cleanable on all natural & synthetic fabrics when properly heat fixed.
Waterbased: No smelly solvents and cleanup is easy with just soap & water.
- Use straight or thin as desired with water.
- Pre-wash fabric before printing if necessary to preshrink and remove sizing.
- To heat set on fabric: iron on reverse side for 1 minute at appropriate fabric setting. Keep iron moving.
- Use standard fabric setting for conveyors or commercial dryers.
- Always test samples prior to production runs.
Jacquard Screen Inks are self-curing on most
surfacesno heat needed. For maximum wash
fastness on textiles, heat at 250-300 degrees
Fahrenheit for one to two minutes. Lower
temperature, for longer periods of time may be
required for some synthetic fibers.
- Clean Up
Clean up with warm water. Mild commercial
detergents may be used to remove spots where
the ink my have dried in the screen.

adhesion, and other requirements specific to
your application prior to production runs.

need to be cleaned before printing. While Jacquard
