Discharge is a form of waterbased screen printing that bleaches the originally pigment of the shirts and replaces it with a new design. Discharge is generally used for darker garments, more vintage/distressed style prints, and higher quality fashion brands.
There are some product colors that cannot be discharged. Please consult with your representative.
