Organic Inks

Our organic, water-based inks meet the highest standards and stand the test of time.

Most screen printing companies offer toxic, oil-based ink called ‘plastisol’ that contains petroleum based plastics. Others claim to offer eco-friendly soy based ink and water-based ‘discharge’ ink. The truth this these inks still contain harmful chemicals and known human carcinogens like formaldehyde while releasing toxic gasses like sulfur dioxide.

At Print Natural we use the world’s most eco friendly GOTS certified organic, vegan, water-based ink. These inks offer the softest and most durable prints possible. Our organic water-based inks are not only better for the environment, they're better for your skin and more comfortable to wear. They're also super durable, achieving a rating of 8/8 on the Blue Wool Scale which measures resistance to fading.

Print Natural inks do not contain ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFCs, HCFCs, aromatic hydrocarbons or volatile solvents. They are also free of lead, heavy metals and toxic chemicals. Our inks passed the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class 1 and are safe to use on underwear and baby clothes (infants under 2 years). Print Natural inks were also granted Approval by the Soil Association in the UK, having successfully met the requirements of the Global Organic Textiles Standards (GOTS) for use in organic textile processing. The ink ingredients are not sourced from animals and our inks are not tested on animals. Ingredients that are sourced from plants are certified GMO free!
