Water based printing
Waterbase inks are soft, breathable inks that soak into the fabric of the garment, rather than sitting on top. When printed correctly, they result in crisp, bright prints that you can't feel to the touch!
When to use Waterbase Printing
- 01)For super-soft, no-feel prints .
- 02)On white or light-colored garments.
- 03)On dark-colored garments for a strong faded/vintage look (color of garment impacts the ink)
Can waterbase inks be printed on dark garments?
Absolutely. When waterbase inks are printed on dark garments we typically call this Discharge Printing, since we need an extra element to bleach the original color out of the shirt before printing the super soft waterbase ink. However, we can also print straight Waterbase onto dark garments in order to achieve a faded/vintage effect or a tonal effect
This is the traditional style of printing. Inks are thicker and rougher than our standard printing, and the ink sits on top of the shirt. These inks can be printed on any garment or fabric and work best in small print areas. Plastisol inks are typically used on all blended tees in place of our Standard inks.
Embossing and debossing are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material (but might protrude somewhat on the reverse, back side).
You will see right away that the fluorescent colors will significantly brighten an image, making it seem to jump off the page. You will also see that certain fluorescent colors will jump out more than others. For instance, replacing only process yellow with fluorescent yellow in a photo of a metallic surface like a trumpet will make the trumpet seem crystal clear and brilliant. So being selective in choosing which colors to replace with fluorescent inks can have dramatic effect on the final printed product, especially when you use fluorescents that are warm colors (reds and yellows) rather than cool colors (blues and greens)
Metallic Printing provides glistening feel to the product making it highly attractive with extraordinary aesthetic appeal. The metallic feel may be varied from extremely flashy to quite subtle & refined depending upon customer choice with the mere selection of type of film (holographic / plain), colors, and overprint treatment.
