Our Most Popular Inks & Techniques
The most widely used, most trusted and most popular screen printing ink in the world. Plastisol uses a plastic, oil-based screen printing ink and if you want your design to have bright, vibrant colors that will survive countless cycles through the washing machine, then this is the option for you. Plastisols are the most commonly used inks for printing designs on to garments and are particularly useful for printing opaque graphics on dark fabrics; this is because opaque ink can be used on many substrates. One of the benefits of using plastisol is that the colors are custom mixed, specifically tailored to your design, and because plastisol inks will not dry, they must be cured (done with an industrial textile dryer). Most plastisols need to reach a temperature of about 290-330 degrees for full curing.

Water Based Inks
Water-base Screen Printing uses an environmentally friendly water-based formula to make the pigment. They have recently become very popular because of the distressed, worn look that is easy to achieve with water-based inks. When its applied to a garment, it’s so soft that it is almost impossible to feel. Water-based inks dry fast once they’re applied to the shirt, so completing a more opaque image is difficult to achieve.

Discharge Screen Printing is a really fun technique that uses a bleach agent to remove the dye out of the garment instead of adding ink to create a design. For example, a black shirt can be discharged to the design so that it would appear white. Because there isn’t any ink applied to the shirt, you can’t feel the design! We often use the discharge process in connection with water-based inks to provide the brightest water-based colors possible! Water Based inks used with discharge printing provides beautiful colors on very soft prints, which makes it a unique alternative to the traditional plastic inks.
