The reflective printing is made with the same technique of screen printing, but with a special ink that is required to obtain the reflective result. With the reflective ink is very important to focus on printings in different materials from the classic ones because printing times are longer. For some materials, such as nylon or polyester fabrics, it is better to print on a basic framework in order to obtain a cleaner printing.
In order to have the optical effect, this printing has to be carried out twice. In production it is necessary to leave the ink dry properly for some time before the second printing.
