Choosing An Ink Type
A quick breakdown of the finished we offer

WHAT INK IS RIGHT FOR ME?


We normally lean towards soft inks as that’s our personal preference & the style of printing we’re known for. This may not always be possible for the garments you’d like to print on, or it may not be your personal preference. The ink types we offer can essentially be broken down into 1 of the 3 following categories.


SOFT


This is our standard style of printing. It’s a great balance of a soft feel, high detail, vibrancy & colour accuracy. It’s also more versatile than our super soft inks.


INK - Plastisol & Discharge Hybrid


PROS

- Soft feel

- High detail

- Accurate colour

- The best option for photographic prints


CONS

- 100% cotton garments only

- Incompatible with some garments & garment colours


SUPER SOFT (ORGANIC)


If you’re after the softest, most breathable print, that feels like it’s part of the fabric we recommend super soft ink. Our super soft ink is also certified organic & vegan.


INK - Waterbased / Discharge


PROS

- High detail

- Print is very soft, breathable & feels part of the fabric

- Soil Association Approved (organic)

- PETA Approved (vegan)


CONS

- 100% cotton garments only

- Incompatible with some garments & garment colours

- Colour matching is less accurate

- Print colours are less vibrant


BOLD


If you prefer a thicker, bolder print, often with a satin finish then bold is a good option for you. Bold ink may be your only option depending on the garment / colour chosen.


INK - Plastisol


PROS

- Accurate colour

- Vibrant colour

- Prints on all garments & colours


CONS

- Often has a satin finish (can be a pro depending on personal preference)

- Thicker / heavier print (can be a pro depending on personal preference)
