Water Based Screen Printing: For Garments that Feel as Good as They Look.

If you’re looking for a custom apparel design option that creates light, soft garments with sharp design details, water-based screen printing is an ideal choice. This method uses ink that soaks directly into the fabric of a garment rather than sitting on top as plastisol ink does. This results in a printed design that has a soft hand – meaning the design is soft to the touch – and lasts much longer without fading or cracking from repeated washes.

The only limitation you face in water-based screen printing? These thinner water-based inks don’t show up very well on darker garments. Unless…

Water Based Discharge Inks: The Best of Both Worlds.

Discharge ink employs a chemical that removes the dye from darker garments, resulting in a print with a very soft feel. When you “discharge” the dye from a garment, you’re creating an – almost–white base, in which water-based inks can then be used to create a vibrant design.

Water-based inks can be used to print standard, oversized, and jumbo designs. To learn more about using water-based screen printing in your custom apparel project, start by requesting a custom quote from In Your Face Apparel!
