Ink Color Charts


When it comes to printing on to different colored t-shirts, the most important thing is the make sure you’re choosing colors that will stand out well.

There’s nothing worse than spending all that time on your custom t-shirt design, only to have it unrecognizable when printed on the actual shirt.

Because we know that people like to design in all sorts of different colors, and don’t always want to wear a white t-shirt, we provide the option to print a white ink under base in order to make your design really stand out on any color t-shirt.

 

White Ink Under Base

A white under base is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. When you choose a color t-shirt that you want to print a custom design on, your design may not stand out as well as if it were printed on a plain white t-shirt.

That’s where a white ink under base comes in.

A white ink under base is when we print your design in all white on your t-shirt first, and then we go back over the white areas with the colors you’ve chosen. This allows the design to pop off of any color t-shirt regardless of how dark or light it may be.

Without printing a white ink under base on your colored t-shirt, your design runs the risk of blending in to the color of the t-shirt itself, thus preventing it from being displayed as you intended.

 

Color Printing Examples

We know that it’s hard to visualize how different colors will appear when printed on different shirts, so we’ve put together the visuals below so that you can see exactly what various colors will look like when printed with or without a white ink under base.
