Metallic Ink 


The newest thing in press printing!

Metallic Ink allows you to add a little or a lot of shimmer to your press cards and business cards! Add it to a full image or select out only part of your design or text.

When using Metallic Ink keep in mind that it will have a similar effect on your images to printing on a Natural Metallic Base Metal. Our How To Guide gives you a variety of color swatches in Metallic Ink with RGB codes so you can replicate that exact swatch!

You can download a digital copy of the Metallic Ink How To Guide and Swatch Kit Here.
