This is our standard method of screen printing when you do not specify a specialty ink. We use top of the line Phalide Free plastisol inks ensuring amazing color quality and long lasting prints with proper curing. The benefits of Plastisol Inks are opaque and vivid color, pantone matching, and great durability. Appropriate for most fabrics.
WATERBASE + DISCHARGE INKS
Waterbased inks allow for an incredibly soft, smooth print that becomes a part of the shirt. Waterbased ink gives you a very comfortable, wearable shirt. Waterbased inks do not have high opacity like plastisol inks. This is a great option for bight colored prints on light colored apparel. On dark colored fabrics, the print colors will not be as vivid.
Adding discharge to waterbased inks will bleach the shirt and re-dye the fabric. When trying to obtain bright, vivid colors, discharge works best with 100% cotton fabrics.
Because the ink reacts with the fabric, we can aim for an approximate pantone match, but can not guarantee an exact match with waterbased and discharge inks.
Printing discharge on anything other than 100% cotton will yield a more muted color, here's a great example of what to expect when printing a waterbased white on a tri-blend tee, you get that great textured vintage look.
Do you need to turn that work of art with tons of different colors into a t shirt print? We have just the thing for you with our simulated process printing technique. We can achieve photo realistic prints with ease with this process.
FULL COLOR CMYK
Through the use of half tones, angles and inks, we can create a wide spectrum of colors for your print using Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black inks. This process works best on light colored garments.
We offer two main print sizes which your image can fall within. You can see the different options laid out with the max screen size available per print size. The images represent the actual print area. Anything within those parameters constitutes that particular print size. For instance, if you decided to print an oversize image, you can use the whole print area up until 18" wide X 26" tall.
A big question we get is “What if one dimension falls in the Standard sizing and one falls in the Oversize?”. That will count as an Oversize print. When dimensions are larger than the Standard setup we have to use an Oversize screen, which is what distinguishes it from the Standard printing when it comes to pricing.
Additionally keep in mind the size of the apparel you are ordering, printing on a small shirt will not have the same affect as printing on an xxl size shirt. If you are wanting to have a proportionally sized design that looks closely the same across all sizes, then different sized screen set ups will be needed at additional cost.
