Print in specialty inks
Specialty Inks and Imprint Methods are additional features that CustomInk is able to offer during the design process. They are available by special request, and often require special pricing. For a consultation on specialty inks and imprint methods, or to talk to a design specialist as to how they can work for your design, give our Sales/Service Department a call at 1 800 293 4232!
Fluorescent Ink adds an extra intensity of color to a design. While fluorescent ink does lend a brighter quality (much like a highlighter pen) to an area, it is best used when complimenting a design of standard ink. The ink is not totally opaque and works best on lighter colored shirts, and over small areas. Standard colors include pink, green, blue, yellow, and orange.
Foil Transfers are a great option when looking for a reflective surface on a shirt. The transfers are a metallic facing adhered to the shirt with clear adhesive ink. They are bright and highly reflective, although they do require special care to maintain their luster. Silver and gold are standard colors, although special requests can be made!
Glow-in-the-Dark ink is unique in its ability to do just that! Pale Lime Green is the only color available that glows in the dark, and this must be asked for by special request. This ink works best on lighter colored shirts as the ink is not totally opaque, and will show through to the shirt on darker colors!
Metallic inks are another option for you to achieve a metallic surface in your design. The 'metallic' lies in the ink itself (versus being an on-lay or transfer), and are available in a variety of colors (silver and gold are standard). Metallic inks work best when there are no small details to fill as the ink is a bit thicker than normal.
Glitter Ink is the best way to bring sparkle into your design. Blue, silver, or clear pieces of glitter are intermixed with standard ink of any color.
Reflective Film reflects any bright light (like headlights). Perfect for anyone looking for high-visibility apparel. Best for larger areas of print and a simple design with few thin lines.
