What is our SuperSoft ink?
Our SuperSoft ink is a custom formulated water based ink. Water based ink is a special type of decorative ink that literally soaks into the fabric instead of sitting on top of it, as our bold ink does. SuperSoft can be used on light or dark colored shirts and allows for a bright print that has a “pop” factor. Since the fabric isn’t compromised by the ink, garments are left with a super soft touch and feel. You literally won’t even feel the print on the shirt, which is one of the many benefits of our SuperSoft inks.
Does it print well on dark shirts?
Absolutely. Our SuperSoft inks work great on both light and dark garments. For printing on darks, our SuperSoft ink is transformed into a water based discharge ink. Discharge ink is still a water based ink that soaks into the shirt’s fabric leaving it super soft. The only difference is that there is a discharge agent mixed into the ink that removes the dye in the shirt during the printing process. Once the dye has been removed, the discharge ink will then re-dye the image area with your desired ink color.
Our SuperSoft ink is what makes Real Thread who we are!
Why use our SuperSoft ink?
No Added WeightUnlike Plastisol ink, our SuperSoft water based and discharge inks do not require an underbase and the ink soaks right into the fabric rather than sitting on top. This mean your printed shirts will maintain its original lightweight, super soft feel, durability and pliability.
Detailed PrintingOne truly amazing advantage of printing with our SuperSoft inks is the amount of detail we’re able to get from your design. Unlike plastisol, discharge-base or hybrid print styles, our discharge ink allows us to bypass the typically needed “underbase”, allowing for greater detail and definition in the print, resulting in greater image clarity of your design.
You Cannot Feel The PrintOne of the biggest benefits of our SuperSoft ink is how soft the image is after being printed. After just one wash, it's virtually unnoticeable to the touch. From the moment you get your first water based printed tee, it’s very likely you won’t want to wear anything else ever again.
Oversized PrintingThere’s no way around it, big designs and heavy plastisol inks should not be caught together. Our SuperSoft water based & discharge inks are generally a must if you’re going big with your design or printing over seams. With big prints, it's #waterbasedwins.
Print On Any FabricAchieve great results on 100% Cotton, Poly/Cotton Blends and Tri-Blends. It’s a common myth that you cannot use water based and discharge ink on different fabric types. However, with our SuperSoft inks, you can—and the results are AMAZING!
