Screen Mesh: For Metallics, use 80-110/inch (32-44cm) mesh. For Glitters, use 24-30/inch (10-12cm) mesh. For Glow-in-the-Dark, use 80-160/inch (32-64cm) mesh.
Curing: Because of the bright reflective nature of Metallics, extra time may be required. Glitter inks will require extra curing time because of the very heavy deposit of ink. The inks will be cured when the entire thickness of the ink film reaches 325°F (163°C).
Heat Transfers: All 700 Series Inks can be used as cold peel heat transfers. Inks should be printed onto release paper such as T-75, and semi-gelled onto the paper. Metallic Inks should be printed through a 80-110/inch (32-44cm) mesh. Glitter Inks should be printed through a 24-30/inch (10-12cm) mesh. Transfer at 350°F (177°C) for 10 to 15 seconds and peel cold.
High Gloss Glitter, Metallic & Crystallina Transfers: To achieve a high gloss effect, the 700 Series Glitter and Metallic Inks should be printed on a gloss release paper such as G-97.
Litho Glitter Transfers: The Litho Inks are screen printed on a high gloss release paper such as G-97. The paper is then screen printed with a glitter ink through a 30/inch (12cm) mesh. Portions of the design are printed with 700 Series Glitter and the rest of the design will be printed with 555 Litho White to give a combination effect. White is printed first with a 110/inch(44cm) mesh and the Glitter is printed last.
Ink Cleanup: Use Enviro Series 2000 Green or Enviro Series TR Blend.
Ink Modification: To reduce the viscosity of the ink, slight amounts of 502/902 Reducer may be added to the plastisol ink (up to 5%).
