What is the best material to use for imprinting if I want to use it as an embroidery applique? The material must be able to withstand not only the embroidery, but rough treatment by the owners of the jackets. The jackets will be Carhartts, if that helps you understand the rough treatment they are likely to get. The design I am planning to use is diamond plate. Appreciate any suggestions you may have!

I had a "test shirt" when I first printed the Color Print 2 and kept putting it in the washer and dryer (doing everything wrong like a regular customer would) and I got 40 washes before it started showing signs of wear! This wasn't a regular square transfer either, it was a picture of a "Harp Guitar" and was contour cut even along the strings. I have no problem selling this product ad have never had a complaint from a customer!
