What’s the key to successfully printing glitter plastisol inks?

The primary function of glitters is to add decorative value to an otherwise basic and dull design. For plastisol glitters, it is recommended to use a maximum mesh count of 40 (t/in), a high screen tension, and a 65-70 durometer squeegee. Implement a print-flash-print technique with a hard squeegee pressure. Glitter ink should be flashed at 230 degrees F and cured at 320 degrees F.
