Screen Printing Inks
Selecting appropriate screen printing inks is crucial to the final appearance of a printed item. Inks come in various types, including water-based, plastisol, discharge, and specialty inks, each with different qualities. PMS color matching is used to ensure that the colors in the final printed item match the intended colors of the original design. Ink colors can affect the overall impression of the printed item, with bright, bold colors conveying a more energetic or playful vibe. At DesignAShirt, our artists are experts at choosing the best colors for your design and matching them to the most accurate Pantone colors available. By being selective with your inks, you can create depth, texture, and focal areas in your design. Below is a list of unique screen printing inks that can be used to take your design to the next level. In addition to these examples, we also offer:
- Glitter Ink - Contains glitter for a sparkly look, often combined with a clear gel.
- Glow-In-The-Dark Ink - Almost clear, light-activated ink that glows in the dark.
- Clear Gel Ink - A thick glossy coating that can be used in combination with others.
- Shimmer Ink - Creates a unique reflective, iridescent shine.
