I'm new to screen printing. Which ink should I start off with?

It completely depends on what you or your customers want. Do they want a bright, vivid print? Go with plastisol. Do they want a soft print? Grab water-based.

We typically recommend new printers to start off with plastisol ink. It's a more forgiving ink since it doesn't dry out in the screen and it's easier to cure. 

If you're interested in water-based ink, check out this blog. It'll dive into what's needed to successfully print water-based inks and whether or not it's best for your shop.
