Hi to all of you.
I live in Sweden and I am a magician for kids. I would like to have my own silks with written "THANK YOU " (tack) or "Happy Birthday " in Swedish. Today you can in practice only find stuff in English.
Is there any company that prints what you want on the magic silks?

Tack

/Andrea

I can hand paint it on the silks (look at my website for some of the painted silks) or Wonder Imaginary could do it.

Last year, I did some silks with Hebrew letters on them that I had no idea what they said. I just need the exact artwork or words and spelling you want on the silk.

You know that Sharpie Pens work fine on real silk? I made one I use for mental magic (Mind reading). It is a ornate but the only word on it is "Blank!".

Mine is red and black on white. They were the only colors of Sharpie Pens in my desk!

Bob,

You need a steady hand and good handwriting to do that. I have neither. I also wanted something a bit more elaborate. You need to leave the part with the writing blank if you dye the rest of the silk a dark color, like royal blue, if your letters will be yellow. Right?

Maybe I should just learn how to do silk screening. I remeber doing it in Jr. Highschool Print Shop.

I went to an Art shop yesterday, and they had "Silk for your inkjet printer". I haven't tried it, or even looked inside the envelope. I will report back on what I produce, and what the silk is like. At the moment, I'm just trying to decide what to try and print.

P.S. WooHoo! This is my 300th post

The ink from an inkjet printer is water soluable. Thus, if it gets wet, it runs! It will ruin the other silks too.

It may ruin your props and costumes too.

Be Careful!

Bob is right. There is no way that I know to set that ink. It will also fade if washed.

A steady hand is a must. One mistake and you bouqht the silk. You also must understand combining colors. A yellow silk painted with blue will turn out green letters. So Bruce is right you must isolate colors from each other if you want true colors. Now if you paint Black lettering over any other color it doesn't really matter. Dye the silk the main color and then paint on your black letters.

Thanks, Richard and Bob. It's a plain white silk, and the warning that the inks are water soluable is mentioned in the instructions.
