Water-based ink is our first choice for screen printing as it is the most environmentally friendly option. As well as this, they leave the garment with a soft print and a durable finish. We are always looking for ways to improve our efficiency and keep everything ethical, which is why we use organic garments where ever we can and support fair trade practices.
Plastisol ink is the most commonly used in screen printing as it’s very easy to use and versatile. The most favoured ink is used by most screen printers. We use the best inks from Sericol Fuji lm made in the UK, giving the best results and being ethical.
Water Based Ink
Water-based is the most eco and ethical ink and is our preferred ink to use, the finish is more of a washed effect on light colours, very soft and smooth. New super opaque water-based inks are what we use for the white prints all made in the UK with professional finishes.
Discharge ink is the effect of having the image dyed in to the fabric and is like a water-based screen printing finish but can be used on dark colours or used as an under base to give a not-so-heavy finish for large prints.
