Create all new design possibilities with our wet reveal inks.
Wet reveal inks are clear and undetectable when printed on colored fabrics that darken with moisture. The effect is for the image printed with wet reveal inks to be revealed when the fabric around the image area gets darker due to moisture. This application is great for industries like fitness gyms or races that have patrons that might sweat or get wet while wearing the garments. The design possiblities are endless when revealing all or specific parts of the printed design when adding moisture.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can this be printed on any garment?
For best contrast, choose a mid-color garment that will darken significantly when water is applied. Wet reveal ink can be printed on any garment but typically works best on 100% cotton and blends. Performance fabrics tend not to turn colors when wet.
Can you see the print if the garment is not wet?
No, the ink will be invisible until water is applied to the garment. For optimal print vibrancy, the print area needs to be completely soaked.
Can you choose any ink color to reveal when water is applied?
Not quite. The effect is for the print to be revealed when the fabric around the image area gets darker due to moisture. The ink retains the normal color of the garment when water is applied.
Are there specific care instructions for wet reveal ink?
Because of the nature of wet reveal inks, it is recommended that you wash your new garment when initally recieving it. After that inital wash, no specific additional care is needed. Just follow manufacturer garment care guidelines.
