Discharge inks are water based, but they are also severly damaging to regular plastisol emulsions and regular water resistant emulsions. Some companies have developed special emulsions that are hardened to deal with the durability issues associated with printing discharge inks. This charge is for exposing and coating a screen, basic 16" X 19" outside dimension, wooden frame, with discharge ink compatible emulsion and exposing a 10" X 12" design for t-shirt printing.
