Printing Methods

PLASTISOL PRINTING

A traditional method of screen printing, Plastisol printing is the use of a PVC-based Plastisol ink that is directly adhered to a garment and then cured at a high temperature to dry and harden. Here’s what you need to know about Plastisol Printing:

  • Plastisol can be printed on a wide range of fabric types, including but not limited to: Cotton, Polyester, Nylon, Lyrcra, and Spandex
  • Plastisol can be printed on both light and colored garments
  • Upon printing, Plastisol results in a medium, slightly raised hand (hand is the feel of the dried ink on the garment)
  • Plastisol ink stays true to color upon drying, and can be Pantone Color matched if you’re in need of an exact color

CMYK 4 COLOR PROCESS PRINTING

CMYK Printing is the process in which four ink colors; cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, are printed one on top of the other to achieve a full color print. Some things to note include:

  • This is the process to use if you have a full color design or a photograph
  • This process is done best on white, natural, or light grey garments.
  • These inks are water-based so they too yield little to no hand
