home > discharge



Discharge is an unusual method of marking clothing, based on removing dye from the fibers of a fabric. Despite its color limitations, it is by far the most durable way of marking

We recommend choosing the technique for polyester or other synthetic materials; for materials darker than the print itself.

Other terms for the discharge technique are: discharge screen printing or reduction printing.
