Discharge printing can get complicated if you introduce different colored fabrics into the mix. Keeping track of which colors work best can be a difficult task, especially if you’re printing multiple custom jobs for different clients. To help determine if a substrate will be suitable for discharge printing, Jerzees Activewear has released a helpful chart that aims to show which colors work best. 

The chart rates fabric colors on three different levels-A: ideal for discharge printing, B: acceptable for discharge printing, and C: not recommended for discharge printing. For ease of use, the chart also features the PMS code for every color listed.
