Any suggestions for a metallic ink that works well through higher mesh say 200-230?

Standard mesh, we haven't gotten in to thin thread yet.

The only product we use from wm plastics are the lustres. They are finely ground and print great thru 200 mesh. The black is a new offering our sales team really likes

if you know you're mesh opening, you can order metallic powder and mix your own.

Matsui shimmer base. Then mix your own. We do really cool heavy metal / death metal / black metal detailed prints with it in multiple colors for a ton of bands / labels in the States and overseas.
