Remember you must you the right ink for your application or the ink will not adhere or cure - don't use a fabric ink on ceramics, use a proper ceramic ink - always test a sample first when unsure and do not use acids or strong solvent inks.
Also remember to use the right grade of StencilPro™ for your application - Standard or HiRes.
- If you require an acid or strong solvent ink to print then your probably in well over your head on this and your not going to get much support from anyone in the industry! You will need to use air extraction fans to remove the chemical vapors (or you'll pass out), and in most states it's illegal (OH&S or law) to use these high chemical inks without spillage and environmental traps in place. So dig into your pocket, buy a better quality product and use a non-toxic ink - there's thousands out there these days.
