Does the kit come with everything I need?
To start printing with your kit all you need to find is something to print on! Anything made of natural materials like cotton, canvas and light-colored denims will work well. The Inkofilm included in your kit is designed for inkjet printers. If you don't have an inkjet printer you can always buy custom negatives from us through our app.
How long does it need to stay in the sun?
Inkodye develops in about 10 minutes on a sunny day. If it's cloudy you'll want to leave your print outside for 20-30 minutes to develop its full color.
Do I need sunlight?
You know how you can get a sunburn, even on a cloudy day? Similarly, you do not need a perfect sunny day to develop Inkodye because there is still plenty of ultraviolet light (UV) outside, even when it's cloudy. Also, powerful artificial UV lights can develop Inkodye indoors.
Is this screen printing?
It's similar, but you don't need a screen! Instead of pushing ink through a stencil or screen you use shadows and negatives to block light to make your print. It's far fewer steps than traditional screen printing and the instructions included in your kit make it simple.
How many t-shirts can I print with one kit?
With the four Inkodye snap packs that come in this kit you'll be able to print at least four shirts (4 square feet). If you do smaller prints, like pocket-sized you could print up to 36!
