Discharge printing is a process by which we chemically remove the die from a garment then inject color into the natural cotton color using water-based inks.
This finish gives the garment a softer hand and a more natural feel. This technique is primarily used on darker garments that are 100% cotton.
Foil stamping gives a bright metallic finish. It can be applied to any garment that can withstand the heat and the curing process.
It works well as a mixed medium using single color Plastisol or water-based ink.
Standard colors are: Gold, Silver, Copper, Pink, Red, Purple, Royal and a psychedelic swirl.
A standard process in the industry, Plastisol is versatile and vibrant using PVC particles that are suspended in a plasticizing emulsion. It is the easiest process for PMS matching on a wide range of colored garments.
Because it does not dry on the screen it has consistent run capabilities, which lowers quality control percentages.
4 COLOR PROCESS PRINTING
For photographic prints or when artwork has been created using CMYK combining a full spectrum of colors. 4-color process is the most economical way to print.
The colors blend with a more translucent look making PMS matching more difficult. To add vibrancy, spot colors can be added if needed. This process is primarily used on lighter color garments.
SIMULATED PROCESS PRINTING
If your color design incorporates half tone images of spot colors, this process will work best. Images will have a photo-like result but are not printed with the same CMYK process as 4 Color Process.
Simulated process prints well on both light and dark shirts.
With a film output of 42” wide, we can now screen print larger areas for the same cost as a regular print. To do this, we utilize wing pallets that allow us to print over sleeves, collars and seems.
For the environmentally conscious, water-based inks have a thin viscosity making them perfect for printing over seams, collars and full bleeds.
This process gives the garment a soft hand and leaves a small carbon footprint.
When depth and texture are needed high-density inks are the answer. Does not work well for designs with intricate detail or thin lines.
Puff is the softer version of high density. This ink is applied as a one-color imprint and will rise during the drying process. Puff inks can create many different textures when over printed with other colors.
That old-time feeling is easily achieved with distressed or shattered inks. Gives the appearance of a crackling or worn base when cured.
Where safety is concerned, reflective ink works best. Titanium or Silver is can be applied by itself or used as an accent to a multi-colored design.
Matte colorization gives a lustrous metal look without the shine of foil. Colors available, Gold, Antique Gold, Silver, Bronze, Red, Blue Green, and Black.
GLOW IN THE DARK INK
By the light of day or the dark of night, your design will be seen using fluorescent inks. Blue, Green, Red, Orange or Yellow.
This simple clear ink infused with crystalline flakes works well by itself or as a color overlay.
Wet and shiny is the fun effect this ink offers. The gel overlay can be applied clear or tinted for a thick gel looking accent. Often used to highlight beads of water, sweat or condensation.
