"Soft" Feel

  • 100% Ringspun Cotton Garments
  • Waterbase Inks
  • Discharge Inks
  • Opaque "vintage" Look
  • Halftones in Artwork
  • Less Ink Per Square Inch
The "soft" feel of inks on garments is referred to how smooth and soft the ink feels to the touch. There are a few ways to accomplish this feel, the most common method is through the use of less ink on the artwork itself. Printing on garments is very similar to painting walls, in order to paint a black wall, white, one must do 2-4 coats of the white in order to avoid any bleeding of the black.

Using halftones (gradients) on designs can also reduce the thickness of the ink on garments.

The less ink coverage per square inch on a design, the softer the feel of the over all print will be.

Perceived Value

  • Better Brand Value
  • Higher Return on Investment
  • Greater Resale Worth
  • Longer Customer Retention
  • Superior Quality
  • Competitive Edge
Whether you are planing on reselling your garments or handing them out as giveaways; you want your finished product to feel, look and be perceived as a premium item. These are all things that be accomplished without necessarily increasing your bottom line. A well designed shirt with ink effects on a soft garment, can speak volumes of your brand and give you the advantage over your competition.

The better your printed garment appears overall, the longer your end user will keep it for years to come.
