Do you need a custom discharge printer for your garments? Are you even familiar with what a discharge printer might do? Well if you are interested in creating your own custom garments, you might want to stick around to find out! Discharge printing is a type of screen printing that uses a special formulation of water based ink to apply custom designs to cotton fabrics. It’s just like other types of screen printing, meaning it uses screens like stencils to apply ink to the surface of a garment, but the ink is the major difference! Discharge inks are simply water based inks with an added discharge agent, but it makes quite the difference.
What’s the purpose of the discharge agent? Well normally if you use plastisol inks on a dark garment and you want a bright and vivid print, you need to print a layer of white underneath to enhance the colors that will be printed on top of it. With a discharge ink you can remove the existing color from your garment while depositing the desired color at the same time. Since it’s a water based ink, it’s much softer than plastisol inks so this type of printing is perfect for lightweight fabrics or prints with all over coverage.
