The Skinny

Shimmer and glitter inks are commonly used in cheer, bachelor or bachelorette parties, and streetwear apparel. These inks have small reflective pieces that refract light. Glitter inks have slightly bigger flakes in it, more similar to the common glitter flakes than those in shimmer inks.

These inks tend to fade over time but are excellent at first impression. Follow washing instructions to extend the life of the print.

Minimum: 12 pieces

Ink Recommendations: Because of the consistency of the inks they are printed on the t shirt as a thick layer, with fine detail extremely difficult. It is best to design with this in mind.

Ink Colors: Shimmers and glimmers are most common in shades of silver and gold but blues, reds, pinks, and other colors are available on request.

Washing Instructions:

  1. Turn the t shirt inside out.
  2. Wash on a delicate cycle, or by hand. Use cold water and mild detergent.
  3. Hang Dry
  4. Do not iron.


Washability: Glitters will fade after a few washes to follow washing instructions to extend the life of the print.
