Our Inks

Like most great things in life, there is no wrong answer when it comes to choosing your ink style. Both our SuperSoft and Bold inks are water-based inks, with some subtle differences in the final print.

SuperSoft

A water-based ink that literally dyes the fabric of your t-shirt. Depending on the shirt fabric, SuperSoft could result in a more vintage looking print, but always one that's extraordinarily soft.

Bold

A high-opacity water-based ink that creates a slightly thicker print than SuperSoft. It has a bit of a feel to it, but results in an exceptionally vibrant print across all colors and fabric types.
Supersoft Ink Base

Water-Based Ink

This decorative type of ink literally soaks into the shirt fabric instead of sitting on top of it.
Bold Ink Base

High-Opacity Water-Based Ink

This heavier, more durable water-based ink sits on top of the shirt for exceptional vibrancy, but still doesn't crack or fade.
Supersoft Feel

Soft and unnoticeable

Since the ink actually dyes the fabric, rather than sitting on top, you won’t feel the print on the shirt at all.
Bold FEel

Raised to the touch

Since the ink isn’t fully absorbed into the fabric, your print will have a little bit of a feel to it.
Supersoft Brightness

Partial to full

Brightness is slightly reduced by the ink settling into the fibers of the shirt, picking up fabric textures. Printed brightest on 100% cotton t-shirts.
Bold Brightness

Vibrant

Brightness is notable, providing a burst of vibrant color on any shirt type or color.
Supersoft Color Matching

Pantone approximations

Colors will be close to the selected Pantone color, but not exact due to the natural blending of ink and fabric.
Bold Color Matching

Pantone match

Pantone color matching is accurate and consistent.
Supersoft Fabric

Fabric dependent

You can print Supersoft ink on any fabric type, including dark shirts. Just keep in mind that colors won’t be quite as punchy as our Bold ink.
Bold Fabric

Fabric agnostic

You can print Bold ink on just about anything and have it look great. Pick the shirt you like best and get started.
Supersoft Design Details

No underbase

The lack of the "underbase" in the printing process means designs retain greater detail and definition.
Bold Design Details

Underbase layer

Based on the printing process, and the need for the "underbase" layer, some of the finer details may not be quite as sharp.
Supersoft Application

Is it right for me?

SuperSoft is the right choice for you when you want a lightweight shirt that is incredibly soft, durable and pliable. The print will last longer and won’t flake or crack over time. The clarity of details in the print will be phenomenal, though colors won’t be quite as dynamic as Bold printing. If you have a big, oversized design, Supersoft is a must since it can be printed over seams.
Bold Application

Is it right for me?

Bold ink is the best option when you want incredibly vibrant colors that seem to jump off the shirt. It’s a bit heavier and thicker in feel than SuperSoft, and won’t be quite as pliable. It works on absolutely any shirt fabric, meaning your results will be consistent, right down the Pantone you’ve selected for your design.
