See What We’re So Excited About!

Come by booth #1219 at ISS Long Beach, January 19-21, 2018 at the Long Beach Convention Center!

We’ll be showcasing our new AXEON™ Non-PVC UltraMix® 1200 Series Color Mixing inks. See why printers are wowed by our AXEON™ inks’ performance.

Here’s a sample of the accolades we’ve received from several large U.S. and international printers:

“Wow, these inks are easier to print than regular plastisol. So creamy and easy to print. Amazing.”

“Now this is what I call a true evolution in inks. No additives, no fussing with screens, no drying on screens. I hate the current system we’re using. This ink even prints wet-on-wet just like regular plastisol. I don’t have to change the set-up and flash after every color. Truly great inks!”

“I really like these inks; much better than [the competition’s]. These inks perform great!”

AXEON™ 1200 Series non-PVC inks are groundbreaking in that they print just like regular plastisol inks, including printing wet-on-wet. AXEON™ UltraMix® 1200 Series consists of 19 non-PVC, non-phthalate high performance primary colors, plus an extender base. Together, they create vibrant Pantone® color simulations with optimum color strength.  International Coatings’ UltraMix® online Pantone® color matching software makes it easy to mix any Pantone® color.

Part I – Comparison test between plastisol and our new AXEON™ non-PVC inks. Here we are printing with our UltraMix® 7500 Color Mixing System inks.

Part II – Printing design with the Axeon™ UltraMix® 1200 non-PVC inks using the same print parameters as in Part I.

Come see what AXEON™ non-PVC inks can do for you at the booth!  Click here for a FREE pass – promo code INTERCOAT.  We’ll see you there.

How can I get started with screen-printing trucker caps or baseball caps?

There are some cap companies that offer a program where they will send you the unsewn front piece of the cap, so that it can be screen printed and sent back to them for finishing. If using this route, be sure to allow enough time for the fabrication of the caps after the printed fabric pieces have been sent.

For printing on finished caps, look for a specialized platen accessory that helps clamp the hat down during printing. Also, make sure to test whether the cap can be cured through the dryer at the temperature required to cure the ink.  For certain heat-sensitive cap materials, a low-cure additive may be necessary.

Another method is to screen-print transfers that you can then apply to the caps using a heat press machine specifically for caps.

Kieth Stevens is the Western regional sales manager for International Coatings. He has been teaching screen printing for more than 10 years and is a regular contributor to International Coatings’ blogs. Kieth is also the recipient of the prestigious 2014 Golden Image Award Gold Winner, which is given out by SGIA (the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association.
