What is water-based and discharge printing?
Why should I consider printing in water-based or discharge?
You may be wondering, what's water-based printing?
Water-based printing is a special ink that gets absorbed by the fabric, rather than sitting on top like plastisol ink. So when the final product is complete, it feels like nothing is there! It's soft and breathable. That is what makes water-based ink special and different.
Can water-based ink be used on dark garments?
Yes! Discharge ink is used when printing on dark garments. It's still water-based, but it contains a few more pigments that allow it to be on dark garments. It will still have the same super soft and lightweight finishing. With Discharge ink, we still need to lay down an under-base, that would allow your colors to sit on and "pop". If you're going for that vintage/faded look, we can print onto the garment to achieve that result.
