Metallic Inks on T-shirts

Getting metallic inks on t-shirts is easy with screen printing. In our Teefactory workshop it’s one of the most popular options!

Metallic inks on t-shirts

How do we get a metallic gold print on t-shirts?

We only use high quality plastisol inks in our screen printing process. Metallic inks are formulated with small metal flakes in their composition that result in that silver and gold effect. And the quality and durability is exactly the same.

Metallic screen printing inks are unquestionably striking, especially if combined with a dark coloured t-shirt.

The value-for-money is still spectacular, but we must bear in mind that print with metallic inks will always increase our printing budget.

Customising metallic inks on t-shirts

If you are looking for an original ink for your merch, promotional or corporate t-shirts, gold ink is always an option to consider.

As its price is quite affordable, it is used for bands t-shirts, but also for companies, clubs, events or festivals tees. In addition, it can be combined with other normal inks or even with another printing technique for an even more exclusive result.

Gold metallic ink can be used in all types of garments: t-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts, bags and many more.

Pros & Cons of DTG Printing

We love digital printing because it’s fast, cheap and we can get high quality printing results. But let’s talk about the pros & cons of DTG printing. 🙂

Pros & Cons of DTG Printing 6

What is digital t-shirt printing?

DTG printing consists in applying ink directly onto the garments, which are heat set using a tunnel dryer. We can print any kind of artwork, regardless of whether they are texts, illustrations, designs or photographs.

Some time ago, digital classic transfer was used to print photo t-shirts. Nowadays digital printing has taken over for its high quality and short delivery times in low or medium t-shirts orders.

Direct printed t-shirts look amazingly good. That is why they are used in music merchandising, hen party t-shirts or apparel clothing brands, among many other options.

Pros & Cons of DTG Printing 7
Pros & Cons of DTG Printing 8

Pros of DTG

  • Quick turnaround times: unlike screen printing, it is not necessary to create any screens, since the t-shirts printing is done directly.
  • No colour limitation: complex designs full of details, gradients and colours are not a problem for the Direct to Garment Printing.
  • Soft touch: forget the plastic touch on your personalised t-shirts. Digital printing leaves a soft and pleasant touch on fabric.
  • High quality: digital printed tees gives high durability results.
  • Profitable to sell: in short, medium or large orders, DTG printing is very affordable for all kinds of budgets.

Pros & Cons of DTG Printing 9

Cons of DTG

  • Colour variations: colours on DTG printed tees will never be as vibrant as they appear in the original design.
  • Only suitable for cotton apparel: we can not apply DTG on polyester, non woven or nylon garments. Digital printing only works on printable cotton clothing or with a high percentage of cotton content.
  • T-shirts, sweatshirts and bags: due to the characteristics of the digital printer, we can only custom tote bags, sweatshirts or printable t-shirts.
  • Delivery times in large orders: although in small orders it is a very fast customization technique, printing large amount of tees can lengthen turn around times.

Pros & Cons of DTG Printing 10

Metallic printing: Screen printing vs Transfer vinyl

Golden metallic printing on t-shirts is one of most fashionable printing options, and also one of those that generate more questions, especially when it comes to choose between screen printing or CAD-CUT vinyl. So let’s clear up some things about metallic printing: screen printing vs transfer vinyl.

Metallic printing: Screen printing vs Transfer vinyl 36

We show you a perfect sample of online custom t-shirts so you can see the different effects that can be achieved with one or another printing technique.

Screenprinting with gold ink

Metallic printing: Screen printing vs Transfer vinyl 37

The golden ink used in screen printing is made with metallic pigments, which end up giving a metallic look to the gold and silver ink.

The gold and silver inks are the same in terms of high quality compared to normal inks, but their price is a little higher. Still, the value for money is incredible, that’s why it is the most usual choice to customise t-shirts with gold effect.

Bear in mind that small details of your design or logo will look much better using screen printing.

That’s how T-shirts printed with metallic ink look like:

Metallic printing: Screen printing vs Transfer vinyl 38

Metallic Transfer Vinyl

Transfer vinyl is a thermo-adhesive laminate sheet which we cut them down to size and finally ironing them to your tees with a heat-press. There are a wide range of vinyls with different effects so you can get a very specific look.

In the case of gold vinyl, you can choose between matt metallic vinyl and metallic glitter vinyl. In these personalised tees you can see the difference between them:

Metallic printing: Screen printing vs Transfer vinyl 41
Metallic printing: Screen printing vs Transfer vinyl 42

We usually use transfer vinyl in some specific cases: to put different names or numbers in sport t-shirts or to customise in full colour some difficult garments, such as backpacks. It is a bit more expensive than screen printing, so we recommend it if you need a very special effect on your custom t-shirts.

Both techniques have a great resistance to washing and can be applied to any of our printable t-shirts.

Choosing a printing method usually depends on the type of design to be printed, but sometimes our clients wants a precise look on his printed t-shirts. In those cases our sales team will advise you to achieve the best results. 🙂
