Glitter T-Shirts

We’re all humans here, and so we tend have a bit in common. We all love babies, greasy foods (admit it!), and we definitely love a good bargain. But do you know what else we love? Shiny things.

Sometimes even the greatest design needs just a little something extra: a punch of color, texture, or bright spot to catch the light. So how can we apply our love of shine to t-shirt designs? Specialty inks!

Specialty inks are a perfect addition to really make your design unique. CustomInk offers 7 different specialty decorations to put on your t-shirt designs. Each lends its own character to your artwork. We offer puff, fluorescent, reflective, glow-in-the-dark, metallic, and glitter inks! We even offer foil transfers (technically not an “ink,” but it’s too cool to leave out).

Each type of ink has its own character, and in the coming weeks we’ll showcase each of them, alongside some great t-shirt design tips.

Till then, if any of these specialty inks already peak your interest, give a sales representative a call at 1-800-293-4232. They can give you a great crash course in specialty inks, and even help you with your design.

Hey Zander!

Right now we are just offering the white/green glow ink on shirts. We haven’t actually stumbled across glow ink for screen-printing in other colors (especially darker ones). If you know of a supplier or brand we would definitely be open to investigate whether we can add it to our lineup!

Do you offer glow in the dark inks in colors other than white/green. I’d love some darker colors that could be put over a shirt of the same color. This way in the dark the letters would glow, but it would be hard to see it in daylight.

Please let me know,
