Discharge inks work by extracting or bleaching out the dye from the fabric that is being printed. Some formulations replace the dye with the pigment (color) in the ink that is printed. The process seems a little magical to those who have never seen it, because discharge is a steaming process that actually takes place in the dryer. The print does not look very good when the fabric/garment is removed from the print plate, but it looks great after it’s properly cured. Additionally, discharge prints are among the most demonstrative of a complete cure. If the appearance after curing is right, the garment is most likely fully cured.
