Using Metallic Designs

We offer metallic inks that you can use on your designs and graphics. Using metallic inks can give your shirts a major "wow" factor and can spruce up an otherwise simple design. Metallic ink is a little different from our regular inks, so here are a couple of things to keep in mind if you want to design using metallic ink:

»Simplicity is key
The shine of metallic or foil ink could be considered a design element in itself. For something as striking as shiny ink, it's a good idea to simplify your design. Using metallic or foil ink on a design with too much detail can get distracting to look at, not to mention the margin for printing error can get larger. For some examples and tips on simplifying your design, check out our cheap and easy design tips.

»Metallic inks count as two colors
An important thing to factor in before you order your shirts is that metallic ink counts as two colors, which means it costs twice as much as a normal color. Even with the extra cost taken into account, our prices are still the lowest available.

With these tips in mind, you shouldn't have a problem designing a great shirt on your own. If you've got any questions, don't hesitate to drop us a line!
