Printers Choice Crystalina Coarse Flake Non-Phthalate Plastisol Ink
Printers Choice Non Phthalate Crystalina plastisol is a coarse flake size sparkle plastisol used for creating specialty effects when screen printing on textiles. It is commonly used as a transparent second layer on top of other colors to add a glittery effect to that color. A mesh of 86 or lower is recommended when printing with this ink to allow for the larger particle size to clear the mesh.
$44.99 – $109.99
Note: Crystalina and Metallics reflect heat and can take longer to cure. We recommend raising the heat and slowing the belt with these inks, and always test to make sure it is cured all the way thru.
Press Ready; just stir and start printing. For printing on 100% cotton and 50/50 blends. Can be used on light medium and dark colored fabrics. Printers Choice Inks are very soft and easy to print with, and do not build up on the underside of the screen.

Extending With Neutral or Clear Base:
-Printers Choice High Opacity series plastisols are formulated for maximum opacity when printing onto black or dark colored fabrics. Printers Choice High Opacity series plastisols can be extended with HO044 Neutral extender or SE014 Soft Hand Clear when printing on white or light colored textiles.
HO044 Neutral Extender VS SE014 Soft Hand Clear
-Extending Printers Choice High Opacity series inks with HO044 does not affect printing properties, and colors extended with HO044 Neutral Extender are more suitable for printing wet-on-wet on top of a flashed underbase than are those extended with SE014 Process Clear. However, colors extended with SE014 Process Clear have easier printability and a softer hand than the standard Printers Choice High Opacity series inks or colors extended with HO040 Neutral Extender.
-Printers Choice series plastisols are formulated ready to use. Reducer #1, Special Reducer, or Curable Reducer may be used if desired. All reducers will change the opacity and cure. Always pretest when adding any products to the prepackaged ink.
