Plastisol inks are widely used in garment printing because they are easy to print, do not dry in the screen, can be opaque on dark garments and adhere to most textiles. They are composed primarily of PVC resin ( a white powder) and plasticiser (a thick, clear liquid). Plastisol inks can be dried using a heat gun but must be fully heat cured to 153DegreesC for full washability using a reliable form of heat curing.

This ink must be removed using screenwash (see our cleaning product range) on a dry cloth, we recommend either our high strength screenwash for toughest removal, or our organic screenwash for a more eco-friendly clean, or for an odourless cleaning solution our Emulsifiable screenwash is an eco friendly alternative.

Plastisol inks can be printed on virtually any surface that can withstand the heat required to cure the ink and is porous enough to permit good ink penetration. Plastisol inks do not dye the fibres, instead the ink wraps around the fibres and makes a mechanical bond with the fabric.

Discharge Waterbased Inks

February 22nd, 2016

Waterbased Discharge Ink

Discharge waterbased inks are popular because they are soft and breathable. Using the discharge print method you print your designs on apparel with inks that bleach out the existing dye and replace it with your chosen colors.

  • Water based discharge printing results in crisp detailed reproductions of your art without the heavy hand of traditional plastisol printing.
  • Discharge inks work best on 100% cotton fabric, although a surprising number of 50/50 fabric blends are now showing bright print results as well. There are some fabric dyes that resist the discharge process (kelly green, royal blue, purple) and other cotton garments that print up stunningly well.
  • Simply add the appropriate amount of activator to the ink (usually 6%), print the design and then apply heat.  Results will be seen once heat has been applied and the ink activated.

More colours to this range are being added daily so keep checking back for our ever expanding colour range:

What to look out for when buying a carousel

February 7th, 2016

When buying a multi colour carousel, there are a number of important factors to look out for when making your selection.  There are many cheaper budget carousels being sold that can mislead into believing they will all do the same job and produce the right results, but this is not true!  You will end up frustrated and possibly even giving up, however if you select the right carousel from the beginning you can avoid potential ‘pot holes’ in the process of screen printing!

Important factor no.1:

Look out for some micro registration on each of the print heads.  This is important for registering multi colour prints and a must when buying a 2,3,4,6 colour carousel.  To achieve accuracy with every print every time, the registration must be spot on and to do this, each head needs some manual adjusters so you can register each head individually.  If the heads do not have these adjusters then you have no way of aligning each head accurately.

I will be adding some photos shortly of examples of what to look out for.
