Using x-outs for dyes

Would there be any problem with doing this? I plan to start dying soon and would like to grab a couple cheat discs to practice on. Would it be cheaper to grab x-outs from somewhere like Marshall St. or is there a cheaper way?

X-outs work fine, but the penned in x on the front of most discs will not come off. You have to dye them a dark color or just leave it visible.
PIAS has x-outs pretty cheap, not sure @ MS.

Discraft has their misprint lots, $80 for 10 ESP, $70 for 10 Z. But of course the cheapest route is begging unused plastic from friends

Yeah i just noticed that Discraft does this. Seems like a great way to get some practice plastic, for dying and throwing

Been practiv=cing a lot on x-outs myself as I am also new to dyeing. But as stated above the pen mark in the middle is kinda a biatch. If you are doing a dark color with a large area in the center you can cover it up. Otherwise it just looks bad. But if you are just practicing techniques its not that big of a deal right?

For Gateway, the x-out stamp comes off as easy as a regular stamp. Which can be a bit annoying if they're on the deeper side.

cheap premium to practice dyeing ....plus you get to try some new molds

not likely to get any white discs[0 im my 2 misprint packs] but you're practicing so you don't really NEED white yet.

Also, while the cheaper plastics don't take dye well they are cheap and offer a first practice run at cutting, weeding, applying vinyl, removing air bubbles, figureing out/eliminating bleeds. Pick something simple 'cuz it'll fade quick but it might but save some heartache and headache when you try to apply that first bada$$ stencil you just spent 6-8 hours hand cutting since you've been there before Good Luck

X-out is the best bang for your buck learning plastic out there!
