At Kingtees Life is like a dick sometimes it’s up sometimes it’s down bit in wont be hard forever shirt . We know for beginners and experts alike, printing on apparel can feel like you’re going in blind so we wanted to make this process a lot easier on you by providing you with expert printing recommendations. We sent Rick Roth, screen printing legend, on a mission to test out discharge ink and three versions of plastisol inks on our solids, Heather CVC and Triblend fabrics. When deciding which printing method to use for your project, take a look at the colors you need for your design. Screen Printing and DTG handle colors differently, and both have their own specific benefits:

“We worked with Kingtees to create an in-depth printing resource that will greatly benefit the industry Life is like a dick sometimes it’s up sometimes it’s down bit in wont be hard forever shirt . All the fabrics both solids and heathers that we tested performed extremely well, most had virtually no dye migration and we also found great discharge results,” said Rick Roth from Ink Kitchen. In order to make this super comprehensible, we created a Printing Recommendations page to break down these results based on his tests. We had every color of our top-selling fabrications tested with four types of inks. For this test, Rick Roth, printing Guru and founder of The Ink Kitchen, applied three plastisol inks, cotton white ink, 50/50 white ink, and polyester white ink to the fabrics as well as a discharge base. We used white so we could accurately detect any dye migration. For the plastisol inks, he selected the highest performing ink as the recommendation for printing. For the discharge ink, he graded the performance of the discharge on a A, B, C, N/A Too Light, Unique Effect grade scale, with A being the highest performing. Before we dive any deeper, we want to remind you that the results and recommendations below should only be used as a starting point. You should ALWAYS do your own testing, as there are so many variables when screen printing.
