Plastisol Textile Ink
Plastisol is used as ink for screen-printing on to textiles and garments. Ideal for printing opaque graphics on dark fabrics, Plastisol has been the standard for t-shirt screen printing for many years. The spectrum of colors available allow for printing on colored fabric or lighter fabric. The ink is composed of PVC particles suspended in a plasticizing emulsion, allowing it to be tinted just about any color. Plus, because of the inherent durability of PVC, Plastisol inks can retain a bright image for many years with proper care.
Discharge Fabric Printing
Discharge fabric printing uses a water-based ink that soaks into the shirt's fabric leaving it super soft and ready to be dyed another color. Also known as Extract printing, this method is ideal for applications where a soft garment is desired.
Water-Based Screen Printing
Screen printing using water-based ink utilizes dyes and pigments in a suspension with water as the main solvent to create beautiful garments using a more environmentally-friendly process. Water-based inks are a good choice when the project calls for a design that is not easily felt with the hand when passed across the surface of the fabric.

WHAT IS SCREEN PRINTING?
Screen printing, also known as silk screen printing, is the process of applying ink to a fabric garment. Using one or more silk-like screens, depending on the number of colors in the image, to control where it appears on the garment. The process is permanent and it is the most common T shirt decorating method.
