Up until now, you really never had to pretreat white or light colored shirts if you were printing CMYK only designs (with no white under base). However, the colors were not that vibrant unless you printed a double pass, which wastes time and money. Even then, the results were only so-so.
Image Armor LIGHT Shirt Formula creates a whole new dynamic for the DTG printing world giving multiple options in printing your designs, with incredible results. First, if you are NOT printing a white under base on your garments, Image Armor LIGHT will provide unparalleled image quality sharpness, vibrancy, and wash durability. Simply apply Image Armor LIGHT using a spray gun or automated pretreatment application machine (which is recommended for repeatable reults), dry and print.
Take your image clarity and details to the next level. Superior image definition is easily achieved with Image Armor LIGHT that is unmatched in the industry.
Improve the image color vibrancy. Reds are redder, blacks are blacker. The whole image looks so much better in an expanded gamut that is not absorbed by the garment.
Increase the wash fastness of any ink set with Image Armor Pretreatments. Improves washability of the printed image making them look better – longer.
You can print 100% white or light colored polyesters and get sublimation like prints. Or print 50/50 and 100% cotton blends and still have all the benefits of Image Armor to improve your prints.
This was our original video we shot back in 2015 in regards to the release of the Image Armor LIGHT Shirt Formula. We no longer sell the LIGHT Shirt formula in an aerosol can, but the information and performance results are the same today as they were then!
