So, what actually is Screen Printing?

Screen printing is the process of pressing ink through a stencilled mesh screen to create a printed design.

Types of Printing Inks we offer:



Water Based Ink

Well known for their soft feel and vibrant colours they produce when printed onto t-shirts and other textiles. When printed water based inks leave no hand feel behind so you can feel the fibre’s of the garment. Our inks are 100% PVC and phthalate free.

We use the Virus Ink System. Check out




Silk Screen T-shirt printing with plastisol is the oldest and most commonly used ink across the market to screen print your custom t shirts. The misconception however is that all inks are the same. Our inks are 100% PVC and phthalate free.

Stretch ink

Stretch Ink

Mostly used for athletic/activewear fabrics such as nylons, spandex, polyesters, rayons, lycra, that have a lot of stretch but can also be screen printed on other blends for different textures. These inks will make your prints stretch with the fabric and do not create cracks or creases when stretched. These should be printed on all sports jerseys, yoga apparel, athletic uniforms, and activewear.



We offer the 3M reflective ink prints as well as a standard reflective print that come in either a waterbase (eco-friendly) or plastisol-based ink with the unique ability to reflect once a light source is aimed at the print. Popular uses for this new ink includes police departments, fire departments, E.M.S., and other safety professions. Has recently become extremely popular in the skate, surf, urban, and street apparel industries. The ink is very expensive therefore to print with Reflective you will pay much higher price than normal plastisol ink.


Puff Inks

Inks that expands and rises when heated, giving a three dimensional look, with a raised feel. The real beauty and art of screen printing on t-shirts comes when you can mix inks correctly and accurately. Controlling how the puff inks actually puff is one example. Please note that we can only print ONE COLOUR when using these inks. 

High Density

High Density Inks

High Density inks can be matched to any colour and raise in the drying process to create a 3D look. Inks can be raised to your desired height or width and can be printed with other high density inks of different sizes. Please note that we can only print ONE COLOUR when using these inks. 

Glow in the Dark

Glow in the dark

Glow-in-the-dark (phosphorescent) is screen printed and can be a fun and unique way to make your piece memorable. ... The standard glow-in-the-dark colour is yellow/green but additional options include pink, red, blue, and violet.


Metallic Ink

One of the most popular effects which is obtained using screen printing is achieved by using metallic inks. Metallic screen printing inks offer the possibility of incorporating metallic gold and silver elements into your designs to ensure that they stand out above the rest.

The process of metallic screen printing is the same as standard screen printing with the added bonus of making your designs shimmer and sparkle with the use of excellent metallic inks.
