Inks

Platisol- Super durable and looks great on any color garment. A thicker, sturdier feel.

Formulated to achieve superior opacity and color matching accuracy, plastisol inks are the most commonly used inks for screen printed apparel. Made of PVC with an oil base for flow and viscosity.

Our standard pricing includes Plastisol Inks

Soft Inks

Soft Opaque Inks use a minimal amount of plastisol base with a maximum amount of color resin compared to standard plastisol inks. When printed on white or light-colored garments the result is very bright with a soft-to-the-hand feel, although not as opaque as standard Plastisol

  • Soft-to-the-hand feel with bright results
  • Competitively priced when compared to water-based inks
  • High detail for photographic reproduction
  • More ecological than plastisol inks
  • Works well on run-off prints
  • Prints over seams
  • There is no additional cost for Softened Opaque Inks. Simply specify them when you place your order. The sum of your printable products must be white or light in color.

Discharge Inks

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. For a more photographic or high detail option we suggest using our hybrid printing process, in which we utilize both Plastisol and Discharge as the underbase.

  • PMS color matching available
  • Soft-to-the-hand feel
  • More ecological than standard inks
  • Works well on run-off prints and prints over seams
  • Please specify if you would like to utilize discharge inks in your project, or if you wish not to include it as the under base.
  • Discharge pricing is based on the artwork and project, you can expect it to run .75+ more per garment.

 Eco-Inks(The greenest print option)

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.

  • Most eco-friendly inks available
  • Super soft to the hand
  • Water Based inks are the most expensive option, usually running about 1.00 more per garment, and an additional .75 per color.
  • Please specify when you place your order if you would like to utilize eco friendly inks.*

*Artwork must be approved for water based printing by Shirts Up before order can proceed.

Effects

Foil

Add shine to your design with colored foil transfers! Utilize one of our eye-catching foil colors to create a polished, mirror-like finish that will reflect light and make your graphic radiate like the sun. The result is a finish that is sure to make you break out your shades to keep the reflection out of your eyes.

Foil transfer colors include red, gold, silver, blue, black, green, yellow, orange, and rainbow!

This look is created by combining a printed adhesive and a heat-transferred foil leaf. Foil can also be a great way to emphasize your multi-color design. Due to the manufacturing process, however, the other inks used in your design will have a soft-hand feel. Foil Transfers work best with solid, bold graphic areas such as text or logos and cannot be used for halftone images or graphics with fine detail. Limited to one foil color per print location. Extend the life of your foil prints by washing these garments inside-out in cold water and hang to dry. Please specify you would like to utilize Foil Effects. Foil pricing start at 2.75+ per garment.

Puff Inks!

Puff out! Evoke the nostalgia of the 80’s and 70’s or create a throwback look to your raglan or trucker cap with Puff Inks. Puff Inks are a great economic alternative to High Density or Super Gel Inks, but have a much softer marshmallow-like quality. This effect is created by adding a puff additive to standard Plastisol Inks, which makes them rise like a freshly baked loaf of bread.

Puff Inks are available in any color in the Pantone Matching System solid color guides. If you do not have a Pantone color guide, we can match your files to the closest available swatch. Combine this with Standard Plastisol Inks of the same color in a different screen to create texture within one solid fill area. Puff inks start at .65+ per garment.
