What is Plastisol, and what does it have to do with Vintage T-Shirts??

Plastisol Ink is a type of Screen Printing Ink that was first used to screen T-Shirts in the 1970's. When you look at Vintage Clothing, it's the ink that cracks and flakes over time as the t-shirt gets washed, stretched out, and worn to too many Def Leppard concerts.

Plastisol is why real Thrift Shop T-Shirts look Vintage!

What's included:

  • 30 textures in Bitmap TIFF, Transparent PNG, and Photoshop Brush format.
  • PDF Quick Start Guides showing how to use the textures in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Affinity Designer.

How to use the textures:

Photoshop Brush - Load the brushes into Photoshop CS1-CS6 & CC, Affinity Designer, or Affinity Photo. Select a brush, choose a color, and paint texture right into your design. 4000 x 4000 pixels.

Transparent PNG - Perfect for use in Photoshop, Affinity Photo, and essentially any other graphic design software. 4000 x 4000 pixels.

BITMAP TIFF - Ultra high resolution: 12,000 x 12,000 pixels. Best for Adobe Illustrator. Also good for Photoshop.

These files are ideal for screen print production & color separations using Illustrator because they have no greyscale; only black or white pixels.

When viewed in Illustrator, Bitmap Tiff files have automatic transparency and can easily be assigned any color.

Shown in the tutorial video included with the Quick Start Guides, you can also use "Opacity Mask" method to knock transparency through your designs in Illustrator, so the background color shows through.
