Screen Printing: Water Based Discharge

We also offer water based discharge screen printing. This is a water based process that allows us to print on dark colored shirts, using light colored inks, while keeping the extremely soft hand that water based inks offer. The main requirement for this process to work is that the garment is 100% cotton, and that the dye used in the garment is a reactive dye. Other fabric blends may be possible, but a sample print is recommended before production is run. All of the water based inks provide an extremely soft hand after printing. These inks are embedded into fabric, so that they yield a soft look, as well as feel. They are not meant to provide bright, or shiny colors. For that look, plastisol ink is recommended.
