Default Ink's and Cureing

I am in the process of satring up a screenprinting buisness in the UK, I am currently trying to find out what are the best type of inks to use. We are mainly going to be printing on cotton and linnen. Will diferent ink absorb diferently into the material?

I am also clueless about cureing the ink, what equipment do we need to do this and can it be done in a conventional oven?

I have read that a mesh count of about 120 would be best for printing on fabric of this type. Is this true?

Any help would be much appreciated, i have been trying to find some books on the subject but can't find anything that seems to be any good.

Dyfrig..........there is no way you can learn what to print on cotton and linen without learning to print some first. If you can not go to a local shop and learn...,then go to a book like Scott & Pat Fresneners....or look into RJennings@ youtube.com. I'm sure you'll find alot of info there. Jennings is a good fellow that would like to see you as we all would....printing your bum off....so get to work you bloat...!

At the edge of dreams lay the far-flung ideals of true creation.
