Shimmers can add a special effect that will give your garment a brilliant metallic sparkle.  Recommended use is a 85 Mesh Count with no higher than a 110 Mesh.  If metallic flakes are not passing through the screen a lower mesh count may be necessary.  There is a tendency for these colors to penetrate the fabric fibers of cotton, cotton blends and some synthetic fabrics.  A clear underbase through a 305 mesh is recommended to provide for a richer deeper color.

Recommended Fabrics

  

100% cotton and cotton/polyester blends. Always test print fabric before beginning a production run.

Ink Application

 

Shimmers should be used right from the container without any modifications. Adding any reducers or additives can lower the bleed resistance, opacity, or increase cure times of ink. STIR the ink prior to printing on press and after addition of reducers or additives.

Note: There is a tendency for these colors to penetrate the fabric fibers of cotton, cotton blends and some synthetic fabrics. A clear underbase through a 305 mesh is recommended to provide for a richer deeper color.
