If you want your apparel to make a bold statement, special effects screen printing can help you create eye-catching designs that stand out. In screen printing, “special effects” refers to using different inks or print methods in order to create a unique effect. There are many types of special effects screen printing. Glow-in-the-dark screen printing can make your designs glow under low light. Metallic ink screen printing adds a shimmering and luxurious touch to your creations. There's also puff ink screen printing, which gives designs a raised, textured effect, and there’s crystalina screen printing for a sparkling finish.
At Extreme Screen Prints, our recommendations are case by case. Generally speaking, using too many special effects at once (or even too much of one), can come off gimmicky unless it is the sole purpose of the design. But when used thoughtfully, they can enhance your designs and create memorable, stylish apparel.
