Tina | 5 comments The only screen printing I've done on paper is with Gocco. I'd like to also use a screen. What type and brand of ink do you like when printing on paper? And what mesh size do you recommend?

hi tina,
i don't have a favorite brand- i use all sorts of waterbased screen printing ink. speedball is one brand i've used. and for paper, i use an all surface ink. the label should say that the ink is for use on paper.

as far as mesh size, it depends on your artwork-- is it detailed or simple? there is a good mesh size chart in the book.
