Metallics and Shimmers


 

Metallics and Shimmers

Metallics and shimmers are an excellent way to convey your creativity by highlighting or creating your design with metal-like effects. 

--Choose shimmers for a more subtle metallic effect (matte finish).

--Shimmers are impervious to tarnishing and are the best choice for long term use, we recommend shimmers for all fabrics including Dri-Fit 100% polyester fabrics.

--For a polished finish choose Liquid Gold* or Liquid Silver*, we recommend for all garments except Dri-Fit 100% polyester garments. 

*Liquid Silver and Gold are true metallics (metal flake) and thus will tarnish over a multitude of washings. 

--All metallic inks are available at no additional charge and on regular turnarounds

--To maximize your metallic prints wash the garments inside-out in cold water and hang to dry

--Shimmers can be mixed to match the Pantone Metallic Guide (871c-877c series).

--Not compatible with halftone gradients below 20% or above 80%, coarse halftone dots strongly recommended.

 

--PLEASE NOTE: the pattern of holes in the dragons shown below is a halftone effect created only for example in OUR artwork
