"We were really pleased with the results we got from Monarch ink right out of the bucket. Our printers like that it has a nice, fluffy consistency. No more straining the forearms getting ink out of the bucket even on cold mornings. We also noticed that it cleans up really easily which is a big win when it comes to saving time during ink changes. We also noticed it had a very nice soft hand and optimal opacity."

LOW CURE TEMP PLASTISOL INK

Monarch’s non-phthalate and lead-free plastisol ink is a textile ink for screen-printing cotton, cotton/poly blends, tri-blends, polyester, and nylon.  Since one ink rarely provides the best performance for all fabrics, Monarch has crafted numerous specially formulated inks that will keep you one step ahead of the rest of the screen-printing industry.  Our Non-Phthalate, lead free plastisols are no-odor inks and meet environmental requirements for printing onto textiles.

All series pass all requirements of CPSC HR-4040, CA PROP65, & CPSIA.

What make Monarch Ink Different? 

When Monarch entered the Garmet printing market, our goal was to create the newest, most innovative, screen printing plastisol inks that surpassed the
current ink standards for; color, opacity, workability, performance, and bleed resistance.  While leaving a matte finish, soft hand, and excellent drape that all customers want.
