This is a standard 2-color Plastisol print on 100% cotton economy t-shirts. Plastisol is a suspension of PVC particles in a liquid plasticizer; it flows as a liquid and can be poured into a heated mold.

When heated to around 177 degrees Celsius, the plastic and plasticizer mutually dissolve each other. On cooling the mold below 60 degrees C, a flexible, permanently plasticized solid product results. Aside from molding, plastisol is commonly used as a textile ink for screen printing and a variety of other products. It is commonly used as ink for screen-printing onto textiles.
Plastisols are the most commonly used inks for printing designs on garments and are particularly useful for printing opaque graphics on dark fabrics. These inks are not water-soluble. The ink is composed of PVC particles suspended in a plasticizing emulsion, and will not dry if left on the screen for extended periods. Because of the convenience of not needing to wash a screen after printing, these inks can be used without a source of running water. They are recommended for printing on colored fabric. On lighter fabric, plastisol is extremely opaque and can retain a bright image for many years with proper care.
