There's no debate that's foil on the sample shirt, the question was whether metallic inks look the same as foil on a shirt. The answer is "no." You won't achieve the same lustre as foil. Wilflex makes a highly reflective silver that looks very cool, but the liquid silver and liquid gold are much more dull, and lose even more lustre over time. Foil, however, is a major pain in the ***. And, "yes" you need to apply your adhesive immediately before applying foil, then cure the two together like regular plastisol.

I thought the thread starter wanted some answers for this:

^Lol I thought the same thing. For future posters, I'm asking if the gold or silver metallic color options print out as gold/silver foil or something resembling it. Does anyone know? I want to print a black shirt with the "metallic gold" or a navy blue shirt with the "metallic silver".
On the spreadshirt site: FAQs - Design and sell your own t shirts : Spreadshirt
they describe their special flex print as "a smooth and glistening surface". I think this is the gold or silver metallic color option that the original poster was inquiring about. And yes, you're correct, it's really different from the "metallic textile paints" used by screen printers, but is very similar to the metallic foils used also by screenprinters (screenprint the adhesive-apply foil-rip excess foil).

I think spreadshirt uses Flex from Forever Germany ( Forever Digital Transfer Applications Technology ). Looking at their Flex and Flock color options here: FAQs - Design and sell your own t shirts : Spreadshirt
they are the same colors being offered by Forever here:
and here:

Off course, in addition to Forever's flex & flock lineup, they might also be using other vinyl materials from other manufacturers.

, Hi Kelly,
The thing is that the link points to a page on our website, as we are a distributor of Forever Transfer Products in this country.
I posted the Forever website, and people could look up the Forever distributor in their country. In the US, I think International Coatings Ink (International Coatings screen printing inks - plastisol, water-based and industrial compounds- customized formulation of primers, adhesives and coatings using plastisol, urethane, and epoxy) and Conde systems sells Forever Transfer Products, although I've only seen descriptions of their transfer papers and not their Vinyl Flex.
