Discharge is a process where the garment dye is bleached out and replaced with colored ink of our choice. It provides a soft to the touch prints that are embedded into the fabric rather than sitting on top of it like plastisol.
Discharge inks can be used to create smooth underbases for complex process and simulated process images or it can be used standalone for simpler designs.
Here is the image of the discharge ink. The weave of the garment is still visible as the ink penetrates the fibers and replaces the original dies. The image was taken before the garment was washed which further removes the amount of deposit sitting on top of the garment.
