The parameters for printing reflective inks are almost identical to those for puff inks. But here, the emphasis on control is slightly greater since the inks you are printing can cost upwards of $200 dollars per gallon. For your budget’s sake, you want to ensure that your ink film thickness is consistent and uniform from print to print.
When printing reflectives, over shearing the ink with a sharp squeegee will leave you with too little ink on the garment and you will be forced to double stroke. Using a rounded squeegee profile can prevent double stroking and will save time and labor, as well as ink costs.
