Bad inks

Postby Meatsack » Sat Oct 28, 2017 3:46 pm

Didn't want to name names if it's not allowed but anyone ever come across a brand of ink that just makes there blood boil? For me it's the white of this certain brand the other colors I use from them are fine but there white is just trash to me. I needed somewhere to vent but after a third time using this down the drain it finally goes. All it does is smear every print I try. Horrible ghosting to thick and wet at the same time I've tried thinning it and it just makes me mad.

Anyways I just wanted to vent and see if I'm not alone in this? You guys ever come across a ink that just makes you rage no matter what you do? It was a water base if it matters. I've used 1 other brand and it was great. I'm definitely going back to that.

Yes, it's totally possible to have a line of inks where you hate one particular color.... LOL. White is often the most difficult ink to print with however.
