HIGH DENSITY (HD)
High density (hd) is a special type of paint and decoration technique that gives the garment a flock-like look. Like "puff" paints, high density (hd) marking is designed to create a three-dimensional impression.
High density screen printing is one of the most impressive marking methods. When printing with this technique, the ink rises from the fabric, providing a three-dimensional appearance unattainable by traditional methods.
Important information. Each coat of paint must be cured before the next one can be applied. Cotton or cotton-based fabrics are often the best materials for hd printing. Some inks also adhere to the sweat-wicking fabrics used in sports and dance wear.
