Metallic ink is a very popular option to add shimmer to your apparel. Printing metallic gold and silver on a t-shirt can be bold and if designed well, it can bring the art to life and make it really stand out. A base layer of white is required because metallic inks need a hard flat surface to adhere to – so it will be more expensive.

Keep in mind: An under layer of white is needed on metallic prints which means a minimum of two colour layers. Gold and silver come in stock. Very low colour match accuracy on all other colours. Heavier deposit than normal.
