Are you involved in the custom screen printing world?  Have you heard about printing with waterbased ink?  Lots of custom screen printing is done with plastisol inks because they’re easy to use and they are cost effective, but they aren’t the only option.  Plastisol inks don’t contain a solvent so you need to heat them to a specific temperature for them to cure which results in a more rigid print than other options.  For promotional goods or heavyweight materials where the softness of the print isn’t a concern, plastisol is perfect, but what if it does matter?  That’s where printing with waterbased ink comes in!

Waterbased ink is a different kind of ink that can be used for screen printing that will give a different feel from your prints.  Waterbased ink does contain a solvent which means it can dry up when exposed to air, so you mix what you need as any excess cannot be reclaimed for future use.  The trade-off is that waterbased inks penetrate deeper into the fabric and leave barely any hand to your print.  Waterbased inks are great for all over prints too because it can easily go across seams and it’s lightweight on the garment despite the full coverage.

Where can you go to find custom screen printing using waterbased ink?  That’s the easiest part because you’ve already discovered us at AMBRO Manufacturing.  AMBRO Manufacturing is a contract apparel customization company so we have lots of garment decoration services for you to try out!  We’ve been in business for over 30 years so you can certainly trust in our professional quality!  It’s easy to get your own project started with us as all you have to do is reach out to one of our representatives and we can guide you from there.  You can contact us to place an order, or to find out more about our company and services,  by email or by giving us a call at (908) 806-8337.

Discharge Printing Fabric

Everywhere you look there are printed clothes; hanging in store front windows, or in your closet. Most of them probably have the same kind of print or print style on them. If you want to shake up your wardrobe with something different, like a fun print, adding a specialty print on a shirt, or just a different feel, I know the perfect place that will be able to get you what you need.  Discharge Printing Fabric is the preferred method for achieving little to no hand for each design.

AMBRO Manufacturing is a screen printing company that is always making new strides in the techniques and ways to print garments. We do a lot of water based printing which will result in a very soft shirt that will seem like the ink is not there. One of the ways to accomplish that type is discharge printing fabric. Discharge printing is a process in which ink will bleach out the area of the design on the shirt, leaving a white area.

We can also dye the discharge ink to any color you would like; it won’t yield in a bright vibrant print, but will give you a much softer feel that sometimes you may want. The best colors to use for discharge printing fabric are dark colors, like black, navy and other colors alike. This will give the “bleaching out” a much better base; you will be able to see the design much better.

Come to AMBRO Manufacturing to get that unique piece of clothing that you can’t get anywhere else. You can give us a call any time at (908) 806 8337 or you can email us and we will get back to you with anything you may need to know about discharge printing fabric. We are located in Flemington, New Jersey. If you are located elsewhere in the state, we can have your items shipped out to you very quickly.

Water Based Printing

Since the time that screen printing has been around, the tools and techniques have changed drastically in the past years. You can now get a lot of different styles of printing and some cool effects on garments. There is one place where any type of print can happen and that is at AMBRO Manufacturing.  Today I want to talk about Water Based Printing.

Water Based Printing

Most screen printing companies only do one or maybe two different styles of printing. We however can do so much more. Other than our standard printing that we offer, we can also offer you water based printing. There are not many printers that deal with water based printing and that is where we are different from the rest. The difference with plastisol ink and water based ink is a softer feel on the shirt. With our water based printing you can hardly feel ink on the shirt. It’s like the shirt never got a print on it but yet there is.

Water based ink works on all colors of shirts. We can get any color that you want by mixing a special formula. Some colors tend to feel softer than others, especially if we have to put two layers of ink on the shirt. Water based ink is much thinner than plastisol ink, which is the result of a softer print on the shirt. You can have an all over print or just a simple print on the front or back, the choices are endless.

You can give us a call any time at (908) 806 8337 or you can email us, and we will get back to you with any questions you have about our water based printing. We are located in Flemington, New Jersey and can ship out goods anywhere in the country. We are your one stop shop for all apparel printing purposes. We are about making your shirts be something that you have never seen before.
