Are you involved in the custom screen printing world? Have you heard about printing with waterbased ink? Lots of custom screen printing is done with plastisol inks because they’re easy to use and they are cost effective, but they aren’t the only option. Plastisol inks don’t contain a solvent so you need to heat them to a specific temperature for them to cure which results in a more rigid print than other options. For promotional goods or heavyweight materials where the softness of the print isn’t a concern, plastisol is perfect, but what if it does matter? That’s where printing with waterbased ink comes in!
Waterbased ink is a different kind of ink that can be used for screen printing that will give a different feel from your prints. Waterbased ink does contain a solvent which means it can dry up when exposed to air, so you mix what you need as any excess cannot be reclaimed for future use. The trade-off is that waterbased inks penetrate deeper into the fabric and leave barely any hand to your print. Waterbased inks are great for all over prints too because it can easily go across seams and it’s lightweight on the garment despite the full coverage.
