At DaftBug, we think ink!

What we do

We use the latest screen printing technology and equipment to produce the highest quality custom t-shirts. Whether you want traditional plastisol ink or up to the minute discharge ink for the super soft feel, or even the best of both worlds, we have you covered!


screen printing press



This is the most commonly used ink in the t-shirt printing industry as it is suitable for use on almost all garment types. Plastisol is the ink of choice when printing on technical t-shirts for all the charity runs, and also for those designs where it is vital that the colour really pops.
A 100% Pantone colour match service is possible with plastisol ink.

Discharge & Waterbase


Discharge printing is becoming ever more popular in the retail t-shirt as it provides a design with a softer feel due to the process used. Discharge printing removes the original dye in the garment and replaces it with the colours of the design. This results in a breathable tee which doesn’t have the traditional “printed” feel. Waterbased will also give the same softer feel print, however only suitable for use on white or light colour garments.

Bug Premium


This hybrid option offers the best of both worlds, using a discharge underbase with standard ink on top. This allows you to have the colour vibrancy alongside the softer feel. The use of discharge printing here means there are limitations to the garment types and colours, but it provides exceptional results if you are looking for something different!


48 Hour Turnaround

Due to the fact that all printing is carried out in-house we strive to have all orders turned around and shipped in 48 hours from sign off of artwork. This means you can be sure that you will have your super cool tee’s for your event in record time!  



You are in Control!

Using our state of the art online production centre you can approve quotes, get your proofs and track the progress of your t-shirt order so you know where it is at all times. Along with this, it remembers all your previous orders allowing you to re-order at any time without having to repeat the full ordering process, allowing you more time for important stuff – we know how important you are 🙂
