SCREEN PRINTING

With three different ways to print, we can help you to choose from the perfect ink for any project.

WATER-BASED & DISCHARGE

With water-based and discharge inks the garment is actually dyed, rather than printed on. This method of printing is best if you want a print that is soft to the touch, or if you are going for a vintage look.

Pros:

• Super soft feel

• Breathable

• Durable

• Environmentally friendly

Cons:

• Not as vibrant as plastisol

• Printing on dark garments can be difficult

• Colors can change depending on the color of the shirt

PLASTISOL

Plastisol is the most commonly used ink for T-shirts. It is the most vibrant and opaque option.

Pros:

• Super opaque

• Long-lasting

• Inexpensive

• Can print the brightest colors

Cons:

• Not as breathable

• Thick and sometimes rough feel

DIRECT TO GARMENT

DTG printing allows you to print single piece runs without the large set up and cost associated with screen printing.  With a DTG printer you can achieve high quality, full color designs or photos with just about any file type.

Pros:

• Maximum detail

• Can print from a photograph

• Inexpensive

• Perfect for small orders

• Extensive color options

Cons:

• Limited design placement

• No volume discounts

• Not cost effective for large orders
