Water Based Print T Shirt

What makes a water based print T shirt differ from a plastisol ink printed T shirt?  A lot!  Most people don’t realize that within the world of screen printing, not even considering the other types of garment decoration for the moment, there are variations in what it consists of.  For example, a water based print T shirt will look and feel different than the same design printed with plastisol inks.  It all has to do with the kind of ink you use!

So let’s get down to the science and really see what’s going on.  Plastisol inks are very common because they lack the presence of a solvent, which means that they can easily be reused without worry of them drying up when exposed to air.  Since they can be reused the price for plastisol ink printing is typically the most affordable.  The downside is that the plastisol ink needs to cure with heat since the ink won’t dry on its own and usually the resulting print is tougher and has a rather present ‘hand’ (how much you can feel the print on the fabric).  A water based print T shirt doesn’t have that problem because water based inks are much thinner.

A water based ink contains a solvent, which is usually water, and that is susceptible to drying in the open air.  Water based inks cannot be reclaimed so it can be pricier than a plastisol print of the same artwork, but the tradeoff is evident.  Water based inks can penetrate more deeply and can easily go over seams which makes them ideal for all over T shirt prints and oversized printing!  And the resulting print is ultra soft, so after a wash or two it’ll seem like the print was always a part of the shirt!  If you are interested in creating a custom water based print T shirt of your own, you can do it here at AMBRO Manufacturing.  You can contact us to place an order, or to find out more about our company and services, by email or by calling us at (908) 806-8337.
