The right ink not only enhances your design, it sets the stage for your other embellishments. Melmarc offers the following types of inks that can be applied in a wide range of embellishments.
Flock is comprised of small fiber particles that is used to embellish a garment. A special adhesive is applied onto the fabric and flock is sprinkled on the garment to create a raised “fuzzy” effect.
Halftone: Solid / No mesh
Line Weight: 2pt min
Print Size: 13” x 14” max
Weight: 2.25 oz min – 10 oz max
Melmarc recommends using 100% cotton garments or cotton/poly blends.
For best results, garment should be washed inside out on gentle cycle, tumble dry low. Do not bleach or iron embellishment.
Flock cannot be applied to seams, collars, or fabrics containing nylon.
Printing Over Flock:
Fine points will not print cleanly. Overprint minimum line weight: 2 pt
Colors that overprint flock will have a color shift. You will see a color difference between the colors printed over the flock and the color off the flock. It is not recommended to print multiple colors over flock. Flock can get crushed when printing more than one color over it.
