    UV Curing?
    I am trying to screen some artwork and the ink I have doesn't seem to dry. It says it is UV. Does that mean I need to set the ink using some kind of UV light? I admit I am new to this so if you can help clue me in that would be great.

    Thanks.

    If its a UV ink it can only be cured with a UV light source

    Maybe intense sunshine might do the job, but if not talk to a local print shop, they will have the equipment to dry UV inks
