Printable is continuously putting effort in developing new printing technologies. One of our latest additions is the our reflective transparant inkt that can be applied on any area of your textile print. This highly retro reflective inkt will create a reflective/metallic/shiny effect and more depth and colours to your design. Because this inkt can be applied to any specific area in any shape – it can be used to create effects on specific elements. This gives an almost 3D feel to it.

Do you have a project in mind or do you want to see an sample for your project? Challenge us!

Retro reflective inkt: The effect and benefits:

– Highly reflective
– Metallic finish for your design
– Gives depth and brilliance to any image
– Can be locally applied/printed in your design (spot)
– 3D feeling when combined with proper design

So what can we do with it?

We ask what not (see some sketches below)? With this inkt we can:

– Make highly reflective signage and branding at enormous sizes that will lit up when hit by a spotlight.
– Create very exclusive effects making giving objects a golden, silver or metallic look like an expensive packaging.
– Make objects or characters in for the premiere of the Pixar movie stand out on a banner of the design as if it was a 3D.
– Create the really cool car advert on a larger than life billboard that really shows the metallic of the car.
– etc.

Play movie to see the effect.
