Jacquard SolarFast

Harness the power of sunlight using Jacquard SolarFast — the easiest way to create photographic art prints and one-of-a-kind T-shirts.

SolarFast dyes are colorless out of the bottle, but develop into beautifully vibrant and permanent hues when applied and exposed to sunlight. To create a print, simply brush SolarFast onto fabric or paper, place the objects, drawings, or photos on top, expose to sunlight, and watch the color magically appear.

This simple process allows you to create photographs, photograms, and shadow prints on paper or fabric in minutes, in practically any color. On fabric, after treated with SolarFast Wash, prints are completely soft to the touch, permanent, and washable.

SolarFast Thickener for Screen Printing — Mixing SolarFast Thickener with SolarFast dyes enables you to use them for screen printing.

The film is moisture-resistant, ultra thin (4 mil) for optimal detail, and specially coated for maximum density.
