Plastisol Ink

Plastisol inks are the standard garment screen printing ink. They are easy to print, very opaque, and will adhere to most textiles. Unless requested the colors tend to have a glossy look. The white has a heavy durable feel to it.

Discharge Ink

Discharge ink is a great option if you want a bright white print on a black shirt and don’t want a heavy ink deposit. Dye discharge actually replaces the dye in the garment, producing soft feel that everyone wants.

Water Based Ink
