What is "Discharge"...

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.

Knowing your printer...

...is important, and here are a few reasons why. 

First off, you can find out if your printer is actually the one that prints your products. There are many CONTRACT printers that promote their service as a printer but don't actually print the product themselves. 

Another benefit to knowing your printer is being able to ask questions regarding your project, and getting advice on how to create the best possible product. Your printer will know what to look out for and be able to help with choosing the best practices for your project. 

When you know your printer, you can have faith that if and when a problem arises you have someone to call and know that fixing the problem is not going to cost you a ton of time and money like an online print service. 

We are all about getting to know our customers, so we can build a relationship and grow our businesses together!
