We use the latest screen printing technology to print images using up to ten color stations to produce logos & images in vivid color and lasting durability. We print with either Plastisol or Water Based Discharge inks. Water Based Discharge printing is a system which bleaches the dyes in fabric first, allowing the inks to embed, resulting in a smoother & softer feel.
