Printing with Luster

The unique options for #499 Spandex do not stop at basic silver and gold.  Surprisingly, this material can look fantastic when printed.  Dye Sublimation technology allows for full ink penetration into the fabric, meaning that the metallic luster is maintained throughout the printed image.  One of the most interesting applications for this is when antique looking sepia or black images are printed, resulting in a look similar to letterpress plates.  Would the durability implied by this type of image fit your brand?
