Is there any way that you could get a relatively soft hand with a 4 color process print, water based or plastisol ink and can you get a vibrant print with water based ink on dark 100% cotton shirts with a water based ink white base? Also if anyone has images of dark t-shirts with water based ink printed on them it would be great to see them.Thank you for the replies looking forward to the responses.

Yes, I did separations myself with Photoshop. Here are rasterised underbase and process colors. As I wrote in previous message underbase printed with discharge, flashed and then printed pigment paste which were mixed as process colors.

Hi loved your printed tee sample what inks are you using for sample shirt. We are using some waterbased inks from Rutland but have been unhappy with Pms color matching accuracy.

LitPrinter, what white discharge are you using? I use Matsui's and it affects the color I put on top of it too much when I've tried it. Process blue Matsui WB ink changed a little but stayed nice while Rubine Red became Fuschia. I'd love to be able to use white-pigmented discharge as an underbase...

LitPrinter, I was wondering what mesh you used for manual press? Thanks.
