Most printers use plastisol ink consisting of chemicals derived from petroleum. Although being more simple to use, plastisol inks contain PVC and phthalates, two dangerous chemicals very damaging to the environment and have been linked to numerous medical disorders. The plastisol inks also require the use of harmful solvents in the printing process and various ozone-depleting chemicals that contribute to the greenhouse effect.
No-Gods-No-Masters.com uses only chemical-free water-based inks
Water based inks do not contain PVC or phthalates and you don’t need solvents to clean the screens down after they’ve been used. Only water is used throughout the process – from printing to cleaning.
Our inks do not contain any chemicals known to contribute to the greenhouse effect and ozone depletion, unlike many products commonly used in other types of inks such as chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), Hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), aromatic hydrocarbons or other volatile solvents.
They don’t contain lead or any heavy metals. In fact, Permaset Aqua inks do not contain any toxic chemicals at all ! Not even white spirits like other water based inks on the market.

More comfortable clothes
As opposed to plastisol ink and “screen-printing”, our water-based ink offers the unique distinction of not giving an effect of rigid embossed into the print area. Instead, the ink penetrates the fabric and after the water is evaporated, only the ink is left and is absorbed by the fabric. To the touch, you feel no difference between the printed area and the rest of the fabric, resulting in garment a lot more comfortable to wear.
Furthermore, there is no effect of “cracking” of the print with time as it is the case with screen-printed t-shirts.
Worried to minimize its impact on the environment by any means possible, No-Gods-No-Masters.com uses only 100% green energy powered web servers. Furthermore, all the clothes we use are manufactured in factories that use green energy power sources.
