My designs are going to be really bright on dark shirts and I want strong deep solid colors. What printing method and ink would you recommend is good?
It also needs to have staying power so it doesn't wash off quickly.

Thanks

It generally is, yes, but there are ways to reduce the "hand" (the feeling of the ink on the shirt). It's essentially a layer of plastic on the shirt after it is cured.
I think pigmented discharge is the coolest way to get colors on darks, but it can be a pain in the butt to get the color you want.

Is plastisol the kind of ink that feels like a layer of paint on top of the shirt?
Yes. But it's the easiest way to get "strong deep solid colors". Discharge plastisol wouldn't feel paint-like while still giving you the colours you want. It's probably the best option - either that or waterbased discharge.
