New Eclipsetees.com allows white printing
simulating without white ink.
With dark T-shirts in vogue, impressions on the shirts need to be light
colors. For printers, DTG using white ink requires pre-treating the
shirts, using a costly printer that is always in need of repair, and
high cost inks that require multi passes. The extra time required to
print each T-shirt can be even more costly than the ink costs to print
the finished product.
That is, until now.
Dave McClaskey, president of S&K Mfg. Inc., www.Eclipsetees.com, has
developed a way for printers using all types of digital printing for
T-shirts to print high quality “whites” on T-shirts without pre-treating
or using white ink.
Sound impossible? It’s not.
McClaskey uses a “special blend cut” of fabric that is 20 percent bamboo
and 80 percent cotton, which is very soft to the touch. The custom-made
shirts come in black, red, olive, royal blue and navy blue.
“With this process, the guy without a white-ink
printer can simulate printing white ink,” McClaskey said. “This process
also works with heat transfers, silk screeners and vinyl printing.”
McClaskey said his process will soon work with polyesters, so
dye-sublimation printing can also be used.
U.S. patents are currently pending for the Eclipsetees.com shirts, and
process. Eclipsetees.com is offering its new shirts in cases of 72,
along with instructions for printing and all materials needed to print
dark T-shirts without white ink. Sizes run from SM to XL, plus 2X to 5X.
