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.

Glow in the Dark ink creates a glowing effect in the dark when charged by light.
Special chemicals called phosphors are mixed into the ink causing it to absorb energy and re-emit it as visible light. They are best when used on white or light-colored fabrics.
