Which White Ink to Use When?

Cotton vs Poly wht InfographOne of the most-asked questions we get is “which white ink should I use when printing polyester?” followed by “can I use a cotton white to print on polyester?”  The answer to the second question of course is that due to the possible dye migration (bleeding) issues with polyester, we recommend that you print with a poly/low-bleed ink when printing on polyester fabrics.

We do have a lot of white inks, and a lot of choices for a poly/low-bleed white ink, so with all the various choices, it may be confusing which ink would work best with which substrate.

So today we’ve created an infographic which, we hope, will help you navigate through our offerings of white inks a little easier.  We’ve also outlined some of the characteristics and differences between cotton inks and poly/low-bleed inks.  Take a look!
