Screen printing is the best and fastest process for printing into garments plus other products and definitely the most affordable when it comes to large quantities. Also known as serigraphy, serigraph printing or silkscreen, this form of decoration is a great way to personalize your products. It’s a very basic process that has unlimited outcomes. Is the most common and widely used form of decoration in the industry and currently accounts for over half of the apparel decoration activity in the US.

Know Your Ink: Learn what type of ink works best for your designs…


Plastisols are the most commonly used inks for printing designs onto garments. They’re particularly useful for printing vivid colors on dark fabrics and have the most durability. They are composed primarily of two ingredients, PVC resin and plasticizer. Plastisol inks do not color the fibers like a dye, instead the ink wraps around the fibers and makes a mechanical bond with the fabric. Plastisol inks are innocuous when used with reasonable care. A true plastisol ink contains no air-polluting solvents or volatile organic compounds. The manufacture, transportation, storage, use and disposal of plastisol inks do not cause injury, illness, or environmental contamination as long as the appropriate safety and environmental protection procedures are followed as we do in Psylo Graphics. Advantages: Long lasting vivid colors / brighter whites on dark garments / works on most types of garments and materials with proper bonding agents. Disadvantages: Dark garments require a flash base that increases printing prices and can result in a thicker print / print might crack without proper care or after many washes and repetitive high temperature tumble dry.
Water base inks are environmentaly friendly and print great on textile materials. These inks have an incredibly soft hand making them great for printing on different kinds of applications. Water based inks are free of most environmentally damaging chemicals such as PVC, phthalate, heavy metals, azo compounds, nonylphenos and formaldehyde. Advantages: Exceptionally soft hand / intense pigment colors / ease of use and breath ability of the ink on fabric / works on most type of garments and materials. Disadvantages: Light water base colors print on light colored fabrics only / colors might loose intensity or wash out up to 20% without proper care or after many washes and repetitive high temperature tumble dry.
Discharge became very popular in the last 15 years. Though it is not as environmentally friendly as water based inks, discharge inks offer a unique solution for garment decoration. This ink can be printed as direct discharge, dye discharge or used as an under base for water base or plastisol inks. Discharge generates a softer feel on garments and gives a unique vintage look that customers love. Advantages: Exceptionally soft hand / intense pigment colors / ease of use and breath ability of the ink on fabric / works on most 100% cotton garments. Disadvantages: Prints on dark colored 100% DISCHARGE REACTIVE COTTON fabrics only / does not work on poly or poly blend fabrics / some red, purple, royal blue and lime green garments don’t react properly with discharge inks and we can’t guarantee pantone color match on any of this garment colors / whites might look a little tanned on some garments / might require very high temperatures or double drying for proper curing that might affect some garments / colors might loose intensity or wash out up to 20% without proper care of after many washes and repetitive high temperature tumble dry.
Specialty inks are those that create unique textures, reflections and effects to your graphic decorations that are not possible to achieve with traditional inks. We offer a wide range of products that will add great results to your garment. Specialty inks include: foil, glitter, glow in the dark, puff, high density, sparkle, clear gel, reflective, suede, shimmer, metallic, blow out base, flock and more. Advantages: Work on most type of garments and materials / adds textures, colors and effects that are not possible to obtain with traditional inks. Disadvantages: Considerably more expensive than traditional inks like plastisol, water base or discharge / might require an extra hit of glue or flash base to make the material bond with the garment and look right / might require an extra step like a heat pressing, double drying, etc., for proper curing / colors, textures and effects might loose intensity or wash out up to 20% without proper care or after many washes and repetitive high temperature tumble dry.
4 Color Process Inks are also environmentally friendly and are very useful for multi-color photographic like prints. 4 Color process is a color separation technique that combines cyan, magenta, yellow and black to reproduce the entire spectrum or gamut of colors found in the image. Advantages: Unlimited color prints / exceptionally soft hand / reduces costs for multi-colored designs (5+) / ease of use and breath ability of the ink on fabric / works on most type of garments and materials. Disadvantages: Prints on light colored fabrics only / cannot guarantee pantone color match / colors might loose intensity or wash out up to 20% without proper case or after many washes and repetitive high temperature tumble dry.
