Speedball Screen Printing Ink - FAQ

Customer Service & Information Page


What can I mix with Speedball Screen Printing Ink in order to thin it?


Speedball Screen Printing Inks may be thinned with water. Add in small quantities with complete mixing to the desired consistency.


What does the Retarder Base do?


The Retarder Base increases your “open” or work time by slowing the drying time. It also reduces the opacity of the inks.


How can I prevent the White Fabric Ink from becoming transparent on dark fabrics?


After the first screening, lift the screen, dry fabric with a hair dryer, and in precise registration, screen a second coat. Keep in mind that the final ink needs to be a thin, even coat to prevent cracking when washed.


Is peanut oil used in Speedball Inks and Paints?


No, peanut oil is not used in any Speedball products.

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example: adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in any sizes will give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.
