I've been trying to dye discs lately using sign vinyl as a template but it seems that every time i get very bad bleeding. when i dye a disc i usually use star plastic or champion/z plastic and it's always a new disc,( no cuts or burrs) and i always make sure to squidgy the bubbles out and i'm using rit dye in a pan on low heat. is this crappy vinyl with bad adhesive? if anyone one out there has any suggestions as to what i might be doing wrong or could point me in the direction of some proven high quality vinyl that would be greatly appreciated.

I check every 5 - 10 mins or so rinse, then cook longer if needed. thanks for the cudo's
Ok I'm out buying dye as I type this.

What's the difference in this powder dye and the liquid form? Is one better than the other?
i've heard that liquid is better and both are ok.
I use powdered RIT dye only ... i have only heard bad things about the liquid.

Ok ill go with the powder to be safe, these boxes are small though how far can I stretch a box out?
just you can dye quite a few discs with one box
They don't have acetone here but only turpenoid.

Same thing?

Damn, I went ahead and bought the turpenoid for 8 bucks! I'll take it back with reciept and get the acetone tomorrow I guess. =/

Thanx.
tip for keeping the acetone to smudge the stamp your trying to get rid of. use a dab/drop or two of acetone on the stamp and let it sit a second or two and then dab it up with a rag or paper towel.
works better than trying to dip a rag in the acetone first and rub the stamp off. aside from googling "disc dyes" or something similar I found a forum somewhere that had like 80 or maybe more pages of peoples dye pics and all sorts of tips and tricks.
some good info on discgolfreview as well, but I found it's kind of a learn as you go process no matter what knowledge you pick up before you start.

happy dyeing :)

Thanks for the tip!

Btw, when I asked the employee if they had any acetone he just took me to the turpenoid and told me it was the same thing, I dunno, think I'll just wait and get the acetone. I've only got one Boss and would hate to ruin it before I even really get started.

What's that site with all the dye's posted up?

I use that method also... couple of drops of acetone and dab it up with a clean rag ... once the color of the stamp is gone you can wipe the silver stamp away with a clean white cloth DONT USE A COLORED CLOTH the colors will run from it and end up on your disc or cotton ball works
