Water-based Screen Printing

Get the softest shirts you've ever felt with water-based printing.

Water-based printing features inks that are soft, breathable and able to soak into the fabric of the garment, rather than sitting on top like conventional plastisol inks. When printed correctly, they result in crisp, bright prints that you cannot feel to the touch. Since water-based inks become part of the fabric, the print feels as soft as the shirt it’s printed on.

Water-based screen printing is a technique that uses water-based ink to print designs on t-shirts. Unlike traditional screen printing, which uses plastisol ink, water-based screen printing produces a softer, more breathable print that is soft and comfortable.


1. Superior comfort and feel

One of the primary advantages of water-based screen printing is that it produces a print that is soft to the touch and breathable. This is because the ink is absorbed into the fabric, rather than sitting on top of it like plastisol ink. This means that your t-shirts will feel more comfortable to wear, especially in hot weather.


2. High-quality prints

Water-based inks produce high-quality prints that are vibrant and long-lasting. They can be used to achieve a wide range of effects, from subtle watercolor-style prints to bold and bright designs. Because the ink is absorbed into the fabric, water-based screen printing produces prints with a soft, vintage look that many people find appealing.


3. Versatility

Water-based screen printing can be used on a wide range of t-shirt fabrics, including cotton, polyester, and blends. This means that you can use it to create a variety of designs and styles, from simple one-color prints to complex multicolor designs. Additionally, water-based inks can be used to create a range of effects, such as distressed or gradient prints, making them a versatile choice for t-shirt printing.


4. Environmentally friendly

Water-based inks are free of harmful chemicals and pollutants. This makes them a great choice for eco-conscious consumers who want to reduce their environmental footprint. Additionally, many water-based inks are biodegradable, meaning that they break down naturally over time.


5. Better for printing on dark fabrics

Water-based screen printing is a great choice for printing on dark fabrics. Plastisol inks often require an underbase layer to achieve good coverage on dark fabrics, which can make the print feel heavy and uncomfortable. Water-based inks, on the other hand, do not require an underbase layer, which means that prints on dark fabrics will feel softer and more comfortable to wear.


Water-based screen printing is a great option for t-shirt printing. It produces prints that are soft, breathable, and high-quality, and is an environmentally friendly choice.  Additionally, it is a versatile option that can be used to create a range of designs and styles on a variety of fabrics. So, if you're looking to create high-quality t-shirts that look and feel great, water-based screen printing is definitely worth considering.
