Type Of Inks

– Eco Ink (Most common use ink)
Water based ink with soft, natural feel
Water-based inks produce ultra soft prints and are the most eco-friendly inks available. Water-based inks are used by organizations with a desire to maintain a green profile and fashion-oriented companies looking for a soft-to-the-hand feel. With the consistency of water and a translucent base, designing for these inks should be reserved for minimal detail and color printed on an organic fabric. Truly an ink for those looking to print green.

– Discharge ink
Softest ink for dark/black garment
Discharge is an activator which is added to a water-based ink and, when printed, removes the garment’s color dye. Usually, this will result in a natural tobacco-like color. If tinted with a color resin, the discharge will remove and replace the garment’s original color in a one-step process. Resulting color varies according to the original dye of the fabric. All discharge inks are printed on a select range of 100% cotton garments. Use this process if you want the softest possible option for black garments and want to print a design with softer edges and less detail.
PRICE : Add RM3 from standard screen printing price.

SOME OTHER SPECIAL EFFECTS FOR PRINTING:

– Emboss / Expantex Effect
Emboss are printed with a special screen setup to create a squared-off print that stands up to 1/8 inch above the fabric’s surface. This results in an opaque, durable, three-dimensional print that adds texture & depth to your graphic.

This effect is limited to one three-dimensional ink per garment and cannot be combined with Plastisol or Discharge Ink due to the heat required to achieve each of these processes. it also cannot be used for halftone images or graphics with fine detail. Emboss effect work best with solid, bold graphic areas such as text or symbols.
