Low Cure / Low Temp Inks Screen Printing Poly Inks

Top 5 Considerations When Printing on Polyester

  1. One of the main problems with printing on polyester is that the dye in the fabric can bleed into your printed design, caused by dye migration.
  2. High heat is detrimental for polyester, as it can act as a catalyst for dye migration while also causing the actual fabric to pucker or melt.
  3. If you are printing multiple colors and need to use a flash in between printing each, I suggest pre-flashing the fabric.
  4. When printing multiple colors on polyester, don’t forget that if you use an under base and a poly white that cures at a lower temperature, you also should use colors that cure at a lower temperature.
  5. Conduct a wash test before starting full production.
