[INQ. NO. 2108C09] Discharge printing is usually a screen printing process where the same techniques and equipment are used but instead of normal ink, discharge inks are used, which remove the shirt’s dye instead of putting a color on top of the shirt.
DTG Printer prints out all the images on fibers by using discharge ink instead of screen print. Thus, it does not require any pre-treatment process that can omit 1 phase in clothes print, which can save time and fund in clothing prints for the print-shops.
It is somewhat similar to bleaching in a design, except it doesn’t damage the fibers like bleaching would. It results in an extremely soft print, and shows the weave of the shirt. And the printed area is airy and soft like its own fabric.
DTG Printer can be used as an under-base for other colors to be put on top, or with pigments added. Pigmenting discharge can be difficult to achieve exact color results, as the discharge efficacy affects the color, and what you see is not what you get when mixing the pigments, however, it can still be a great way to achieve colors on dark garments and vintage look prints.
