Water Based T Shirt Printing

For most custom printing needs, plastisol inks will suffice.  Screen printing with plastisol inks is very common in the apparel decoration world because it’s easy and affordable.  Plastisol inks contain virtually no solvent so they are not susceptible to drying out in the open air.  Since they won’t dry up you can leave them on the screen and reclaim at will for reuse which keeps costs low.  However, as with anything, there are drawbacks involved.  When plastisol inks are dried, they stiffen up and the more ink you have on the shirt, the heavier it feels.  For some designs or garments, plastisol inks don’t have a noticeable effect, but that’s not going to be true for them all.

Water Based T Shirt Printing

Water based T shirt printing is a different way of screen printing because the inks don’t behave the same way.  With water based T shirt printing you get much softer prints due to the low viscosity inks.  Since water based inks contain a solvent, which is generally water, they are susceptible to drying out and thus each batch must be mixed for one-time use.  The tradeoff is that the ink is capable of penetrating deeper into the garment, which is ideal for all over printing that goes across raised seams.  Also you are free to work with lightweight and flowy-style garments because you don’t need to worry about heavy plastisol prints.

You can even use water based T shirt printing to remove the existing color and put in your own custom color in one step by adding a discharge agent to the ink mixture.  If you are curious about all that you can do with water based T shirt printing, you can come to AMBRO Manufacturing to find out more.  You can contact us to place an order, or to speak with a representative, by email or by calling us at (908) 806-8337.
