Metallic inks are distinct printing inks that have been around for a while but aren’t as commonly used. ChuanPlus metallic inks are easy to use and can be used straight from the tube. They are polyurethane based which gives you irresistibly soft hand-feel and superior fastness performance. It’s best to print using a courser mesh (80-100T) as they contain sparkles.
They are a perfect match if you’re looking for that “oomph” or “wow” factor to your designs. Metallic inks may appear more luxe, but don’t be fooled. Metallic inks are special effects inks that provide added shine, vibrancy and brilliancy to your designs. They give off just enough shine to make any printed design stands out without being too loud.
Our metallic inks come in two colour – Gold and Silver. They can be tinted with ChuanPlus standard pigments to create a wide range of metallic effects. Metallic screen printing inks can be printed on light and dark toned fabrics without an underbase. You can use it to print on cotton and T/C fabrics.
You can also create a reflective effect by printing a layer of underbase.
These inks are definitely sticking around when it comes to the festive prints.
