Water Based Screen Printing
Having mastered the art of waterbased screen printing on tees we have recently moved to using discharge inks to print designs that are super soft and breathable on dark coloured garments.
Our clients prefer waterbased inks because they are so soft. Unlike many printers still using platisol where the shirts . Using the discharge print method we are able to print your designs on apparel with inks that bleach out the existing dye and replace it with your chosen colors. Water based discharge printing results in crisp detailed reproductions of your art without the heavy hand of traditional plastisol printing.
These inks typically work best on 100% cotton fabric, although a surprising number of 50/50 fabric blends are now showing bright print results as well. There are some fabric dyes that resist the discharge process (kelly green, royal blue, purple) and other cotton garments that print up stunningly well. We want to work closely with you to pick the best combination of garments and inks to get the results you want.
