Acrylic Ink Printing
Custom screen printing done with acrylic inks is pretty different from plastisol ink, so if you’re looking to change things up with your print work then maybe custom acrylic ink printing could be the answer. Many people print using plastisol inks because it is simpler and most cost-efficient than acrylic ink since it can be reused over and over again with no negative effect, but that’s only part of the story. Plastisol inks are formulated in such a way that it dries stiff and when doing a lot of ink coverage, it can really weigh down the garment so it’s not ideal for every situation. Here’s where acrylic-based ink printing can really shine because it’s softer and lighter than plastisol!
The key difference between acrylic-based ink printing and plastisol ink printing is the presence of a solvent in the mixture. Plastisol inks lack a solvent and they won’t dry up when exposed to the air, but since acrylic ink does contain a solvent you have to mix just the right amount for the job at hand and use it quickly. It might seem like you should just get plastisol inks and never have to worry, but that’s not really the case because plastisol inks don’t always feel nice when cured. If you want a luxurious fashion print you’ll need a different option. AMBRO Manufacturing specializes in specialty ink screen printing including the use of Acrylic inks. These inks offer to print a reduced presence, that is more pleasing to the touch and that penetrate deeper into the fabric and across the seams while remaining lightweight and soft to the touch.
If you are working on a garment customization product that requires the lightest of hands, i.e. a light feeling ink, then this method is perfect for your project.
