I'm starting this thread for any and all in Rochester that are dyeing their own flyers. The daylight is getting shorter with the fall upon us and its the perfect time to get some work done. Please feel free to contribute to this thread.

Only problem with dyes like those, if you lose them you will NEVER get them back. I make an effort to return every disc I find, but if I find King Hippo, it might end up on my wall!

Which dyes are you guys finding works the best? I have a few done that could use to be a lot darker, but they are cool, and will be posted soon. I have tried a few different options, and the practice is helping, but with all of the options in the area, I was just wondering which source works best for you.

you can use rit dye but it has to be i think before 2011 exp. date on it. They changed something in it so it wont dye plastic good. There is another kind but im not sure of name ask Dale he is using it.

The dye that I use is called I DYE POLY, you can get it at Hyatts on Jefferson Rd. or online at Dharma chem. its about $ 3.50 a pack, I have dyed about 10 discs using the black and still have a bit left . It takes less than 1 minute to get dark black. The only problem that I found compared to RIT is that you really have to wash the disc good afterwards. In my research I have found that any Disperse dye will work on plasic. I DYE POLY is the most readilly available of these type of dyes.

Thanks Dale! I was wondering about Dye Poly when I went to Hyatts. The old Rit hasn't been great, and I was hoping that would do the trick.

These are cool. Dumb question: where are you getting blank discs to use for dying?
