T-lastic

We have many tricks up our sleeve here at New Creation Inc. to make your design stand out from the crowd. There are a million screen printers out there that are happy to print a simple t-shirt for you. But, what happens when every other garment in the store looks just like yours? How can you give your t-shirt, dress, or hoodie that extra edge that gets the customer to look a little closer? At New Creation we work with you to incorporate special touches and techniques into your design to make it pop. One of our favorite techniques, especially for menswear, is called T-lastic.

T-lastic has a shiny look to it, but isn’t as heavy or sticky as gel. It is made by using a combination of plastisol ink and heat-sealed teflon paper. Currently, it is most commonly found in men’s streetwear but, t-lastic is beginning to branch out into more commercial markets.

Using t-lastic in a tonal color is a sleek way to give a simple design some added sophistication.

Alternatively, t-lastic can be used as a strong, contrasting element to give a design more depth.

You can also add gradients and mix t-lastic with other techniques to create unconventional and artistic designs.
