Specialty Printing Methods

Click a printing method to see an explanation.

Process Color

Turn Multi color art into 4-color using CMYK. Artwork for process color requires an art charge of $167(r) minimum. Please provide a color printout. Due to the nature of process inks they will pick up the color of the shirt behind the print therefore, only white, ash, or natural garments can be printed on. Additional spot colors may be required for lettering or logos. Color matching is not available with process printing.

Distress or Soft Hand

We can make any artwork look distressed. Coupled with Special Soft hand inks that make the image flexible or “soft,” your imprint will look awesome. There is a $0.83(r) up charge for soft hand inks and an $8.33(r) art fee, one time, for making distressed art. When ordering a distressed print you must specify if you would also like it “soft hand.” Soft hand is thinner and will not cover darker garments as completely.

Belt/Side/Odd Location Prints

Belt, Side and Odd location imprints require an up charge for extra handling. Up charges for these special locations vary but most will be an additional $0.67(r) per location. If you have a special placement that you would like your imprint on, please contact us for a quote.

Glow in the Dark

Glow in the dark ink gives a phosphorus glow at night. It is charged by the sunlight and, due to the nature of the ink, will appear off white with a green tinge in normal daylight. Glow in the Dark ink requires a $1.67(r) per location up charge. Glow in the Dark ink requires a large amount of ink to work well so fine detailed artwork should be avoided. On dark garments, Glow in the Dark ink requires white behind it and will be priced as a 2 color plus the up charge.

Glitter Ink

Glitter ink is a clear coat with glitter embedded in the ink. Using this ink will give your logo a shine. There is a slight green tinge to the glitter. Glitter is priced as a second color and can go over any color of ink.

Puff Ink

Puff ink creates raised imprinting that gives your logo a 3D look. Great for textures and other uses along with imagery that makes your logo “jump” off the fabric. There is no additional charge to use Puff ink.

Reflective Ink

Reflective ink provides a “shine” when flashed with light at night. It is not ANSI/NTSB certified but still gives a good reflection for added visibility. Reflective ink requires a $1.67(r) per location up charge. Reflective requires a large amount of ink to work well so fine detailed artwork should be avoided. Reflective ink is considered a light ink and will require a flash charge.

Soy Eco-Friendly Ink

Looking for an earth friendly alternative to regular plastisol inks? Try Soy Inks. All the benefits of regular plastisol ink without the environmental impact. In addition to earth friendliness, soy is also a low conductor alternative and flame resistant which makes it great for electricians and fire fighting applications. Please add $0.67(r) per color to your imprint. Available in most standard colors.

Neon Ink

Neon inks must have an under base if printing on colored shirts. Neon ink is priced as a two color imprint unless printed on white shirts.

Metallic Ink

Metallic ink has a foil additive added to the ink to create a “sparkle”. Although not adequate to be considered “reflective,” the ink does have some shine to it. There is no additional charge to use Metallic ink.
