These are the best dye results we've gotten. We have a vinyl plotter and have been making some disc golf stickers, but haven't quite mastered dyes yet. Here are a few discs I did after reading this.
NOTE: There's one issue. I let the dye set overnight, then tried to wipe some goo gone on the disc (star plastic) and started getting a little run of the dye. Is that because the dye is still setting? I'm scared to touch these discs with the stuff.
Dude I hate you.
LOL. Makes me want to get a plotter.
As for the goo gone, I do my dye, and then rinse it in cold water with a millllllllldly abrasive pad. I dont like to get something too rough cuz then it scuffs it up and makes these little circles in your new disc. Kinda makes this hazy look.
Let it sit for a day or so. Then use some goo gone. That's usually what I do. Because when I'd try to clean the residue off immediately after the dye job, I'd notice it start to smear and pull the dye off the plastic. Just give it time to set into the plastic and you should be ok.
