T-shirts and specialty ink puff printing have become a popular trend in the fashion and apparel industry. Alongside screen-printing, puff ink has gained attention for its ability to create a 3D raised puffy look on t-shirts, hoodies, and more.
Puff ink, just like screen-printing, offers a wide range of options by allowing you to choose any Pantone ink color for your designs. However, what sets puff ink apart is its unique "matte" finish, as opposed to the glossy look of other printing techniques.
Have you ever wondered what makes puff ink so puffy? It's all about heat! After the screenprinting process, our apparel goes through an industrial dryer to cure the inks. With puff printing, an additive is mixed into the ink that is activated by heat. As the garment goes through the dryer, the ink rises and expands, resulting in a poofy, raised texture on the t-shirt.
Combining the versatility of screen-printing with the dimensional effect of puff printing, you can create eye-catching designs that truly stand out. Whether you're looking to create custom t-shirts for your brand or add a unique touch to your personal wardrobe, puff printing is definitely worth considering.
