Types of Ink;

Plastisol ink Is the most commonly used in screen printing as it’s very easy to use and versatile, the most favored ink used by screen printers. We use Phthalate free inks to be more environmentally friendly.

Water-based ink Best used on light colours, the finish is more of a washed in effect and feels part of the garment.

Discharge ink – Is the effect of having the image dyed into the fabric and is like a water-based  finish but can be used on dark colours.

Glow in the dark ink – Does what it says on the tin and is a great screen printing effect, available in different colours.

Metallic ink – Metallic silver and gold screen printing ink for that extra bling effect.

Puff ink – An additive that we can use with our ink to give it a raised puff effect, works well in creating dimension to some designs.

Soft hand base – We use this in all of our plastisol inks as it gives a softer feel finish to the print.

And they smell good!
