All-over prints have become very popular and allow for ultimate flexibility. Designs can be seamlessly placed anywhere, patterned over the entire garment or wrap around the sides and shoulders.

Specialty Inks

  • Discharge-Water Based Ink

Discharge prints use a specialty ink which removes pigment from the garment, leaving a washed look that feels just as soft as the not printed garment.

  • Metallic Ink

Metallic inks have a look similar to foil with the feel of a normal print and are a great alternative to standard solid colors.

  • Glitter Ink

Make your garments shine; glitter inks can add sparkle throughout the design or add accents.

  • Puff

Puff inks are chemically designed to puff up the garment. When the ink reaches curing temperatures, it will puff up and become raised off the garment. This effect gives a garment a unique look and allows a design to have added dimension.

  • Glow in the Dark

This specialty ink is transparent in daylight but glows green in the dark. Glow effects can be used to add extra elements or modify the design when viewed in the dark. It makes for a fun and creative garments perfect for children, Halloween and school or club events.

  • Gel

Gel ink is a clear ink that gives a smooth or wet like appearance. The ink alone is colorless and normally put on another ink to get color. Use gel ink on dark garments for the best results.

  • Metallic & Holographic Foil 

Foiling on garments adds elegance, flair and ensures your style stands out. This heat press application is available in a variety of colors and works great on screen printed shirts.  Metallic & holographic foil is a special effect technique for T-Shirts and other textile fabrics that produces a shiny "metal-appearing" surface. Using a heat transfer press, the foil is transferred to the fabric on top of a receptive ink which has been previously printed onto the fabric.
