What are the different types of ink?

Plastisol
Plastisol works on both light and dark colored shirts and is our most affordable method of printing. Plastisol sits on top the fibers of the garment instead of soaking into them. This can give the print a plasticized texture while other types of inks can produce a softer feel. When printing on dark shirts a white underbase is required and considered an additional color.

Waterbased
Water-based ink is simply that. Being water-based, the ink penetrates into the shirts fibers, giving it a very soft finish. This method is excellent for a large print area. Water-based ink is recommended only for light colored shirts.

Discharge
Discharge is also water-based ink, but includes reactive chemicals that bleach the dye out of a dark colored shirt. Usually this results in a tan color print. We can also add color to discharge, however we cannot guarantee a pms match as results vary depending on shirt color and brand. With discharge and water-based inks, the print will have almost no feel after the garment is washed. Discharge works best on 100 percent cotton.
