Satisfactory specializes in apparel printing. We offer many different options ranging from standard plastisol printing, discharge and waterbased printing and many other specialty techniques. Below you'll find a concise list of what we do on a daily basis. If you have even more specialized needs, let us know, we're happy to see what we can do for you.
Standard Printing - Plastisol Inks
Our standard screen printing is done using traditional plastisol inks. We are capable of printing up to 10 colors on light garments, and up to 9 colors on dark garments that require an underbase print. Our standard prints are printed exclusively using pthalate free plastisol inks. These inks are manufactured to be the safest plastisol inks on the market. Our superior standard prints have a "soft -hand" feel and are often mistaken for water-based ink prints on light garments.
Discharge printing has become a very popular style of printing in today's apparel market. Unlike plastisol inks, discharge inks penetrate the fabric and evaporate the dye from the shirt, leaving your design in its place. Printing with discharge inks offers an extremely soft hand on dark shirts, ultimately having no feel at all once washed. For this one color print technique, we offer both standard discharge (off-white/cream in color) as well as white discharge ink. This type of printing requires 100% cotton garments, and looks especially good with distressed or vintage art. This premium process can be finicky and therefore is sometimes confusing to understand. Feel free to reach out to us so we can explain it to you personally.
Pigmented Discharge Printing
This type of printing is a wonderful way to get super soft single color and multi color prints on dark shirts. Colors of your choice are mixed into discharge inks, when printed the shirt dyes are evaporated and bright colors are left in its place having little to no feel once washed. This type of printing requires 100% cotton garments, and also looks especially good with distressed or vintage style designs. But the technique is somewhat unpredictable by nature, so we are not able to offer exact Pantone color matches using this style of printing. Call or email for more info.
Printing with waterbased inks offers an extremely soft feel on light colored shirts. Rather than sitting on top of the shirt fabric like traditional plastisol inks, waterbased inks penetrate the fibers of the shirt, making the print one with the garment and should be exclusively printed on white shirts for best results. Since further steps are required for this type of printing, it does come at a premium charge. Reach out to one of our reps to explore waterbased inks on your next order.
4 Color Process Printing
Four color process prints are the perfect way to achieve a full color image on white or natural shirts. By using translucent Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black inks, we are able to reproduce full color images by blending different percentages of halftone dots together to get a full range of colors. Printing on darker garments is possible with an underbase of white, but best results come on a white shirt.
Simulated Process Printing
Simulated process printing is the type of printing we use to reproduce full color images on colored/dark shirts. We use 7 to 10 opaque colors including a white base print to create these full color prints. This process also uses halftone dots that blend the colors similarly to our 4-color process print option for light shirts. Due to the additional prep involved with this type of printing, we require a 72 shirt minimum for simulated process print orders.
To really add some pop to a design, we offer foil iron-on application. The process involves printing your design on a garment with an adhesive and then applying a layer of foil that is then heat pressed onto the printed area. Foils come in many many different color options. Call or email a sales rep for more info and pricing for this very specialized service.
