Plastisol is the most commonly used ink in the t-shirt printing industry. Its most identifiable characteristic is, as the name suggests, a more plasticized texture with a solid opacity. The ink sits on top of the fabric instead of soaking into it, giving the print a slightly raised texture. Plastisol ink is great for printing on darker garments, tote bags, & drawstring bags. Plastisol also has very good longevity.
WATER BASED INK
Water based inks are Eco-friendly and water soluble. The ink absorbs into the fibers of the garment achieving a soft hand touch. Water based inks are considered premium and desirable for achieving a high end look.
Discharge inks are used to print lighter colors onto darker textiles. It works by removing the dye of the garment and replacing it with a pigment color of your choice. The pigment dyes the fabric itself as opposed to applying a surface layer of ink onto the fabric. Once laundered, you will notice virtually no textural difference between the printed and non printed areas.
