Discharge printing is one of our favorite methods of printing! The end result is a printed image that once washed has absolutely no "Hand" or feel to the touch.
How it works is that within the pigments of the ink, is an activator that acts as a bleaching agent. While the garment is run through the dryer after printing, this agent bleaches out the original dye color of the garment, and leaves only the colored pigment that was printed!
Basically, it is like dying the fabric, instead of printing on top of the fabric of the garment. It is an amazing end result.
