Styles of printing by hand

Water base printing is a common type of screen printing we offer our clients. Water base ink is an ink we routinely use that leaves our customers with light and breathable finished apparel such as t-shirts and athletic jerseys. When dried, water base ink stretches easily and therefore does not crack.


Discharge printing is a style we offer our clients who want a soft print look and a literal soft feel to their shirts. Discharge printing essentially bleaches the dye out of the shirt and leaves the original color of the fibers. Unlike water base printing where ink is left on top of the shirt that you can feel with your hand, discharge printing creates a style where there is virtually “no feel” to the design when you run your hand over it. Typically done on darker shirts, the discharge process results in shirts with a trendy look and vintage feel.


Generally considered a standard in the industry, plastisol is the another type of ink we commonly use on our custom screen printed apparel. Plastisol is easy to work with and dries with a shiny or matte look that is durable and visually stands out on your shirt or garment.
