Screen Printing Techniques

PLASTISOL (STANDARD)
Plastisol is the most common ink used in apparel screen printing services and is the only screen printing service used to print synthetic fabrics like Polyester, Nylon, Spandex, and more.  This is due to it being a thicker and more durable plastic-based ink that can withstand multiple washes and maintain maximum vibrancy long-term.
Rather than penetrating into the fabric like other types of water-based and discharge inks, plastisol has a textured feel on the shirt. However, these inks can be printed to feel super soft or more textured depending on the intended use. Plastisol printing is ideal for blended fabrics like 50/50 & 60/40.

WATERBASED
For large graphics that are super soft and breathable, water-based printing is the ideal screen printing service to choose. Water-based inks are soft, smooth, and don’t leave a textured finish on the surface of shirts. It’s the standard for private clothing lines and retail t-shirt ventures due to its comfort and wear-ability.
Water-based inks and printing are ideal for cotton garments, but have varying yet awesome end results on other fabric types like 50/50 & 60/40, and other blended fabrics. Our team highly recommends water-based screen printing for a high-end, vintage t-shirt look and feel.

DISCHARGE
Discharge inks have the same attributes as water-based inks, except they have a t-shirt dye removing capability when activated by heat. This specially formulated ink is ideal for printing on dark shirts colors because it can remove the original shirt color and re-dye the fabric to the desired ink color simultaneously – resulting in your light colored inks feeling like they are embedded into the shirt fabric when printing on dark colored garments.
Please note that not every color combination or fabric type will work with discharge inks, so be sure to ask our staff about the details before you place your order.

PUFF & HIGH-DENSITY
Puff inks are plastisol inks with a puff additive that rises up when heated during the drying process. Puff inks work best on text or outlines in a design.
High-Density ink is puff ink used on a thicker screen that allows for sharper edges and more block-like raised feel. Like any SFX (special effect) ink, it is better used in moderation and as an accent in the design. These inks can have a really unique end result when used sparingly on a shirt graphic.

METALLIC & SHIMMER
Metallic & Shimmer inks are plastisol inks that have glitter flakes in them. Because of the thickness of these inks, we do not suggest using it for highly intricate or tiny design details; this is mainly recommended as a second color or as an accent color in a design. We also advise against printing them on sheer fabrics or fabrics designed to be cool or soft.

GLOW-IN-THE-DARK
Glow in the Dark ink is also a plastisol ink typically applied as an overlay to the white used in a t-shirt design. Because of the thickness of these inks we do not suggest using Glow in the Dark for highly intricate designs, or printing them on really sheer fabrics.

COLOR CHANGING INK (SOLAR)
Have fun in the sun with our sun-activated color changing inks! We are proud to be one of the only screen printing companies in the nation to offer color-changing ink as a screen printing service! This ink appears almost invisible (or lightly tinted) indoors but turns vibrant with colors almost instantly when exposed to the sun.
