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.
Solar ink cannot be applied to seams, or collars.
Due to the nature of Solar ink, exact PMS matches are not possible.
Dark garments: Solar ink must be printed over other colors. The color under the Solar inks must be a light shade to minimize the effect they have on the Solar colors printed over them.
Solar colors that contain blue pigment have a pale green appearance when printed. Water Base and discharge can see color variance due to the garment dye process.
