it could be a add on they put in to the inks
I didn't realize the dryer temp determined the shininess of the ink. I figured it was the ink itself or some type of additive. So basically, almost all Plastisol ink is the same?If you want it shiny, go heavy on the ink with a lower mesh count and run your dryer hot.
Interesting...thanks for the info.we work hard to not give shine and when working with plastisol it requires soft handing the ink, using the correct mesh screen so you don't have to have too many layers of ink and watching your oven's temp. If someone requested shiny, we'd use a lower mesh screen, far less soft hand and a slightly higher curing temp...not to high because that will cause print cracking after a few washings.
