Screen Printing Inks

Traditional Inks

The most economical and high quality ink choice for the widest variety of screen printed apparel.

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. Super durable and looks great on any color garment.

Soft Inks

An alternative to traditional plastisol inks that will not cover up the soft, natural feel of your garment. Print bright colors on light or dark garments without losing the soft, natural feel of the fabric.

This process allows you to print bright colors on light or dark garments without sacrificing style or comfort. Jakprints utilizes a range of water base inks, pigments & discharge agents that actually stain the garment, instead of sitting on top of the fabric. The result is a print that is almost as soft as the garment itself! 100% Cotton garments are required for this ink type, as a chemical reaction is used to remove the dye from the shirt where traditional inks would normally print a white under-basing. Due to the nature of this process, some variation in the color of your final print should be expected by you or your client.
