3M Reflective Printing Portfolio

High Quality Reflective Printing

DTLA Reflective Printing

The reflective ink we use is slightly less intense that what is used in industrial contexts – and more appropriate for use with promotional garments. As you can see, the reflective effect is still achieved, but the fabric is flexible, breathable, and a smart choice for cutting edge, detailed designs that will stand out from the rest. We will work with you to get the most out of your designs and have them carefully applied here in downtown Los Angeles.

Retro-reflective Technology

Retro-reflection involves tiny beads in the ink covering a surface. When light hits these beads the light is reflected directly back to its source, and very little elsewhere. This has numerous applications – it is a very practical solution for safety materials and is seen on street signs and other traffic objects to reflect headlights directly back to the driver. Bicyclists and people who work on the road (and other precarious workplaces) also make the most of this technology.

Official 3M Material

We use official 3m 8010 reflective ink for the highest quality reflective prints. This is ideal for screen printing on polyester fabrics. The ink shows up grey with a matte finish when dry, and reflects a bright white with light shone directly on the fabric. This water-based reflective ink is designed to be used on absorbent fabric for breathable, multi-purpose garments.

WE DON'T COOKIE CUT

Each project is unique and requires it‘s own process. Depending on the desired product we will customize the inks and process for each order.

DEDICATED REPS

Each account receives a dedicated rep who can be reached face to face by phone or via e-mail.

Reflective Apparel Maintenance

3M reflective ink is used for screen printing by starting with a water-based ink, which then has the reflective material added with a coupling agent. This leaves a grey, matte finish that appears bright white when reflecting. The reflective performance of this ink will wear off over time with washing, environmental conditions, and normal wear. For washable products, we would recommend printing on absorbent fabric, such as cotton and polyester, to get the most out of the screen printed reflective ink.
