International Coatings Shimmer Plastisols are press ready. They provide a bright, non-tarnishing metallic sparkle to printed garments. The inks consist of a fine, shimmering glitter flake in a low bleed, low fusion, easy to print base. This is a real plus for hand and automatic printers, when it comes to wear and tear on people and equipment.
