When screen printing on a t-shirt, you have three choices of ink to use: water-based, discharge, and plastisol, which are all equally priced and equally durable.
We’ve been using and testing these inks since 2004 and have learned the best way to mix them for optimum results. Based on our experience, this is a general guide to help you determine what will work best for your project and preferred fabric type.
If you’re still deciding on the shirt fabric type you want, we discuss the differences between them in detail here: Very Very Soft Prints
Our water-based ink is a translucent formula that is extremely soft. It feels like a part of the shirt once you wash it.
Whenever you have your project details ready, one of our account managers may advise differently based on your artwork and shirt choice. Email your artwork to [email protected] and we can discuss what will work best for your design.
