Water based inks are best used on white and light colored garments, however they can also be used on colored garments to provide a faded, vintage look to them. Water based inks embed themselves into the fabric, leaving no feeling of raised ink on the garment like you get with Plastisol. Because water based inks are more transparent, Pantone matching is not as accurate on coloured garments as water based inks tend to take on shades of the fabric color it is printed on. This type of printing is recommended for white or lighter coloured garments. This ink is eco-friendly, made from vegetable dyes.
