Screen printing is a technique that can be used to create prints on textiles, paper, and other surfaces. It involves using a stencil to block off certain areas of a screen with ink, and then passing the screen over the material to be printed. The result is an image with high contrast and vivid colors. Screen printing is often used for making T-shirts, posters, and other promotional materials.

Plastisol is the most commonly used type of textile ink, and is made from plastic. It is durable and does not require special care. It can provide bright colors on any colored fabric, and is the most versatile of all inks.
Water-based ink, on the other hand, uses water and dye to create a thin layer of color on fabric. It is much softer to the touch, making it more comfortable to wear. But it requires more care during the printing process, and is not as bright (or opaque) as Plastisol ink.
Each type of ink has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to choose the right one for your application.
