A Digital Printing Network
We did a job for a team close by on red (will not name the manufacturer at this time) that was supposed to be a migration free, no low energy dyes used product. Guess what, they did bleed into the quickprint changing some of the lighter colors.
We contacted the company and were told they could not quarantee the dyes would not migrate because they didn't know what temps or times were used by printers. They suggested a temp of 300 or lower and times of less than 12 secs. Haven't tried qp at those temps yet and they haven'tproven their theory either.
Print one garment and wait 3-4 daysyou should know by then.
I printed two Augusta ladies 525 shirts. The other shirts that need to be done (red polyester also) are Champion CW23. I printed the two Augustas at noon and so far they are fine.
Yes. Sometimes. Maybe.
How's that for an answer, Vicki? Smile.
It all depends. Some polys are better than others but I've never found any one brand completely consistent
Like Butch said, lowering the temp should help
When in doubt, I always use sub block
No fun getting a big (unwelcomed) surprise when you wake up the next day..........if it can be avoided.
Vicki - how did the Quickprint Sub Block media I gave you work out?
Steven, It's excellent. No bleed through on either style shirt (Augusta or Champion) and it has a relatively light hand, much like regular quick print. Although I do have to note the few shirts I imprinted with the quickprint didn't have any bleed through either... But I wasn't prepared to take a chance on the remainder of the shirts. If I had to replace three shirts, that's one thing but I didn't want to have to replace 24.
As always, thanks for the fabulous support. I owe you some cookies! (Although I just got a fabulous recipe for a blueberry cobbler type dessert ~ although THAT would not ship well!)
cookies - yum!
