Types of Apparel Printing Applications

Plastisol Printing

Using PVC-based Plastisol inks is the most common t-shirt screen printing method. As its name suggests it is has a plasticized finish and sits on top of the apparel fabric with a solid opacity and tends not to soak into the fabric leaving a slightly raised finish. The plastisol ink is pressed through a fine screen and directly adhered to the garment before being cured at a high temperature to dry and harden. It is the most durable long lasting process for your printed apparel. You will get many washes and maintain vibrant colours for a reasonable time. Plastisol can be printed on a wide range of fabrics including cotton, polyester, nylon and spandex.

Gold and Silver Foil

Add a shimmer to your t-shirts and custom wear with a foil finish. We can do this using screen printed ink, foil stamping or as a transfer

  • Metallic foil ink – A new innovation in the printing ink business, we can now screen metallic looking ink with a durable lifespan.
  • Foil Stamp – This is the traditional screen printing method that has a two part process where you screen print an adhesive and then apply a metallic foil to the garment and heat seal it. The foil will only remain on the adhesive printed area.
  • Transfer – CAD cut metallic vinyl that is heat sealed on to the apparel.

Silicone Ink

The latest development in apparel screen printing technologies is performance silicone ink.  Silicone inks deliver the ultimate stretch and feel to modern performance fabrics with are usually high in polyester content. The inks are soft to touch and highly suited to light fabrics. Your performance t-shirts, trendy shirts and sportswear apparel benefit greatly with this innovative ink. The lower curing heat for these inks matches the requirements of sensitive fabrics, reducing damage during the flashing process of the apparel and leaving little impact on dye migration. Silicone inks are ideal for polyester performance fabrics, wetsuits, swimwear
