Waterbased Ink

Vibrancy
Colour Accuracy
Softness Of Print
Washability
Environmental Impact

Perfect for printing onto light coloured garments.  The print results are superb and the soft hand of the print is something that you often find on the high street with all the leading fashion brands.  Great for large printable areas as the ink allows the fabric to breath – unlike a conventional plastisol print that I’m sure you all know, recognise and perhaps despise!

As one of the UK’s only Soil Association approved Screen Printers, we love printing (and cleaning up) with Waterbased Ink

Suitable For …..

Waterbased Discharge Ink

Vibrancy
Colour Accuracy
Softness Of Print
Washability
Environmental Impact

This ever increasingly popular way to print dark shirts – no need for a white underbase which results in prints with hardly any feel…. perfect for that vintage / distressed look.  Simply put, the discharge ink evaporates the dye from the fabric, replacing it with the pigment in the ink.  Technology of the inks have moved on since the Seventies when discharge contained Formaldehyde and printers used to wear masks!  Discharge inks nowadays is the environmental option – no solvents to clean up.

Traditionally the majority of t shirt printers use Plastisol ink.  It is a “general purpose” ink that can print on pretty much any fabric substrate.  If you are looking for a vibrant satin finish that Plastisol is the ink for you. Downsides are that the print can feel heavy and have a plastic finish due to the PVC and plasticisers in the ink.  More brands, especially retail are preferring the softer hand feel of a waterbased print.
