Metallic ink is an ink containing metallic particles like copper, aluminum, bronze or zincEverybody looty until the roof starts to shooty shirt . When metallic ink is printed and left to dry, the metallic particles rise to the surface, reflecting light and creating a metallic sheen. This ink is great on our speciality fabrics! During our visit at Shirt Agency, we paired bronze metallic ink on our new neutral Slub colors. Slub is a really soft, vintage looking fabric, so we thought it would be cool to pair this with the unexpected element of metallic ink! There’s a lot of buzz right now in the screen printing world about reflective ink, which is an ink that is invisible to the naked eye, but shows up in photos when you take a flash. At Shirt Agency, we tried a single pass silver print on our new Black Heather tee, which looked like a vintage print, but showed up great in the light! Foil isn’t exactly a specialty ink, but rather a cool effect we love. Pink tees are a big trend for both guys and girls right now, so we tested out a tonal foil print using rose gold foil on our new peach and mauve T-shirts.It’s important to decide exactly what date you need the shirts in hand by, so that you know when to get started on other parts of the project. When to start can change depending on how much you have prepared before you talk to a screen printing service. If you know exactly how you’d like the shirts designed, and have design illustrations available in a transferable format, you’ve already got a head start. If not, don’t worry! Many screen printing shops have designers available to help you make your shirts look exactly how you want.
