Printing with Discharge Inks

When it comes to screen printing you are not stuck with just one type of ink.  In fact, there are tons of different ink formulations for the countless types of fabrics and applications there are in the garment customization industry.  So let’s talk about the reasons why you might want to try printing with discharge inks when it comes to your screen printing.

Plastisol inks are commonly used for screen printing because they don’t dry up due to a lack of a solvent so you can reuse them over and over again.  Since they go a long way it doesn’t cost as much, but they need to be cured with heat to set which makes them kind of stiff and thick.  For some prints you don’t have to worry about the feel, but there are plenty of times you will.  Lightweight fabrics retain their softness and aren’t weighed down when printing with discharge inks!

Discharge inks are water based inks that have a discharge agent that removes the color of the garment you want to decorate.  When you print your design with discharge ink the base color is replaced by the color you want instead and it leaves behind virtually no hand.  People love printing with discharge inks because you can still get vibrant colors while providing a soft and luxurious print.  Luckily for you, you won’t have to go far to find a company that can help you try it for yourself.  If you are interested in printing with discharge inks you can easily get started by reaching out to us at AMBRO Manufacturing.  You can contact us to place an order, or to find out more about our company and all of the customization services we have to offer, by email or by giving us a call at (908) 806-8337.
