XOLB Series

XOLB, "Xtra Opaque, Low Bleed" Inks are high opacity multi-purpose inks that are designed to produce extremely opaque prints, yet are very easy to print on a manual press. The smooth, creamy consistency leaves an even uniform print on white flash bases and can be opaque on black without a white base with screens as fine as 160 TPI (62 TPcm) mesh. XOLB inks are fast flashing, cure with a non-tack surface, and contain clean bright pigments. The fast flash speed allows for shorter dwell times and faster production output. Caution: When printing on any polyester blended garments, always test prior to production for any potential bleed/dye sublimation problems. If you are unsure of the quality or stability of the garment you are decorating, lay down a low bleed white base using our XOLB-158, XOLB-159, or XOLB-151. Click Here To View XOLB Colors.

WOW Series

WOW is a high opacity ink line designed specifically for Wet-On-Wet printing. It is ideal for high volume print jobs. WOW inks will not buildup on succeeding screens, allowing for longer press runs with fewer interruptions. These inks are bright, clean, and opaque, containing brilliant colors that last for thousands of prints. No buildup means no screen blockage, fewer misprints, and less cleaning.

QMX Color Matching System

QMX is the world's most accurate and easiest to use PantoneĀ® licensed mixing system for plastisol textile inks. The QMX system consists of 12 phthalate free colored inks, a phthalate free transparent base and a phthalate free white base, which can be mixed to create over 1,000 standard colors. QMX is PantoneĀ® licensed and has been approved by major designer labels.

QMX enables textile printers to mix consistently accurate colors in batches of any size to meet the needs of specific print jobs. QMX saves money and increases print shop efficiency by eliminating the delays and overheads associated with having to order and stock a wide inventory of pre-mixed colored inks. QMX does away with messy pigment powders and old-fashioned color concentrates that do not mix properly.

The basic QMX system can be extended to also mix vivid fluorescent colors and metallics by simply substituting inks from our QMX Plus line.

The QMX Plus line consists of 7 fluorescent colored inks, a sparkling silver base and an opaque base, which can be ordered as a kit or individually. Click Here To View QMX Colors.
