However, Puff Screen Printing has risen to popularity in recent times as a unique and exciting way of printing designs that stand out. Whether you’re a professional or starting in the world of printing, Puff Screen Printing is great to add to your repertoire. The technique involves creating a design, applying a special ink to screen, and then printing the design onto the fabric as the ink expands. In this blog post, we will help you get to grips with the basics of Puff printing and why you should give it a go. So, let’s dive straight into the details.


Understanding the Basics of Puff Screen Printing requires us to know what puff ink means. Puff Ink is a specialty plastisol ink that expands when heat is applied to it, creating a 3D effect. This ink is used to create puffy raised designs that stand out from flat images. In Puff Screen Printing, the ink is used to print a base image, often in normal plastisol ink, and a second layer of puff ink is applied on top of it. The screen is then used to apply heat to the whole design which expands the puff ink, creating a raised 3D finish to the print.


Puff Screen Printing has become increasingly popular as it provides a unique visual element to any design, making it stand out amongst others. The ink expands and creates a 3D effect that makes any print look cool and trendy. It’s also very versatile. It can be used on its own, or can be combined with other printing techniques like discharge printing or glitter printing. You can use it on all types of fabric, so it’s definitely something to consider if you want to add a bit of texture to your designs.


When Puff Screen Printing, it’s important to consider the types of design you’re printing. Not all designs will work well with Puff Ink. The key is to use designs with areas of thick lines and large open spaces. These designs work best because the puff ink can expand around these areas, making the print more noticeable. If you try to use a design with too many fine details or thin lines, it will likely not come out as well.


To get started with Puff Screen Printing, there are a few things you will need. First up is a puff ink which you can find from any reputable art store. Second, you need the screen and the printing tools such as squeegees and inks. The base color you use should be a contrasting color to the puff ink. After you’ve applied the base image and the puff ink layer, you’ll need a heat gun or a specialized drying unit that’s designed to expand the puff ink to create the desired 3D effect.




In conclusion, Puff Screen Printing is an excellent way to make your designs stand out. There’s nothing quite like the raised 3D effect of puff ink that can be produced in this technique. Although it may require some practice to master, once you have it down, it’s definitely worth the investment in terms of time and money. Puff Ink is versatile and can be used in a lot of different applications to create eye-catching designs. So what are you waiting for? If you want to add a bit of flair to your designs and make them visually interesting, give Puff Screen Printing a try. You won’t be disappointed.
