Why Use Monarch's Plastisol Screen Printing Inks?

Monarch Color manufactures the newest, most innovative, plastisol screen printing inks on the market today.  We specialize in low-temp plastisol inks to meet today's printing challenges.  From bleeding sports apparel, to exotic fabrics that can't take standard cure temperatures, we have you covered.  Our Yeti White inks are the brightest, whitest, and highest opacity white inks on the market.   Our universal Low Temp Apocalypse LB color system, which allows you to print on most fabric types, are the highest opacity colors, on the market.  It gives you the option of printing without an under-base, for optimum production speeds.

 

APOCALYPSE LOW TEMP PLASTISOL INK

Monarch’s non-phthalate and lead-free plastisol screen printing 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 makes Monarch Plastisol Screen Printing Ink Different?

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

What customers are saying about our ink.

I love Monarch’s Apocalypse Low Temp inks. When I first tested it I thought I had made a mistake with the color but now I am pleasantly surprised with how amazing this product is. The print ability, coverage and opacity is super on the manual or automatic press.  I love the opacity on both the light navy and bold red inks.  The opacity and coverage is gives me on dark garments is amazing.  This ink leaves the competitors in the dust, really!

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.

I was using Triangle Ink.  I don't like it as much as the Monarch Vivid Inks. 

Monarch is way better!
