Printing Methods


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 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
