Types Of Screenprinting

Plastisol

  Plastisol printing is the most common printing technique. Used in garment decoration, this method offers superior colors quality with emphasis on high ink opacity. The end result is a clear crisp image, with a thick coat of ink. Leaving the feeling that the print is slightly raised.  

Foil Printing

  Foil printing is a glue based ink that is first printed onto the garment and then a foil transfer is applied resulting in a shiny metallic finish. Foils are available in an array of colors and can only be applied to certain compatible fabrics.  

Discharge ink

  Discharge ink is used to remove the dye in the garment leaving no texture and a high-end boutique style garment. This type of printing is ideal for distressed and vintage simulated images. There are many discharge ink colors to choose from and can be printed on a variety of fabric types. This process is typically used to achieve a reverse effect on a garment that has been treated in "Wash and Dye" process.  

Metallic Ink

 Metallic and glitter ink is a colored plastisol ink that is mixed with either a glitter or metallic flakes. This type of ink has a slight shimmer that reflects light but not as much as a foil would.  

Glow in the Dark

  Glow in the Dark ink is a light sensitive ink that absorbs light. The longer your design is in the light, the longer it will glow in the dark 

Water Base

  Foil printing is a glue based ink that is first printed onto the garment and then a foil transfer is applied resulting in a shiny metallic finish. Foils are available in an array of colors and can only be applied to certain compatible fabrics.
