Plastisol Ink

Plastisol Ink

High Vibrancy. High Definition. High Consistency.

Plastisol is the type of ink that you would see in the just about every shop from beginners to the big boys. It's well suited for super detailed and vibrant prints and can be used on just about any material. It's very versatile and prevalent in the industry. 
 
The downside is that it is definitely a plastic product. It isn't very green. In larger prints, it can feel like a bullet proof shield sitting on your chest. However, for detailed prints and exact color matches, this might be a good way to go. 
 
It also doesn't dry out, so it makes clean up and storage much easier. 
 
The good news is that even if we should go with plastisol, we can add softeners and thinners and combine it with a discharge underbase to keep as much of the softness and wearability of the shirt as possible. 
 
We don't like thick walls of ink so we can't imagine anyone else does either. So we do our best to keep it lighter. Much lighter.
