For best results follow the steps below.
- Water based printing: Our ink can be used straight out of the bottle as a traditional water-based ink. We recommend only doing this technique on light color garments.
- Discharge Printing: This ink can also be used a discharge ink by adding the discharge powder. When using as a discharge ink, add enough discharge powder to the amount of ink you need for the print run. This will be somewhere in between 3-5% by weight. Mix thoroughly to make sure no chunks or grains are visible. Once the powder is added to the ink it will last for one hour.
- Activate just enough ink for the job at hand.

Product I ordered was exactly as advertised. Received it in a timely manner. Can’t complain about getting what was promised when it was promised by.
Works very well but smells horrible
thank you for the wonderful product. very happy with my purchase from screen print direct. i will definitely buy again!
i just bought a discharge white ink with the activator and i really like how it came out. nice and soft print on 100% cotton. i only use water based inks and this ink is great. i only wish it had the mixing instructions on the containers. they are on the website so i was able to get it with no problems. cant wait to get other colors.
