Default Need Some Advice! Screen Printing Experts Please Help.

Hey!

I was hoping someone here would be able to help me with a screen printing issue I have?

I run a business manufacturing custom apparel, and while we have never received any negative feedback about our products in the past - a customer has let us know that their screen print is only lasting 7 or so washes before the screen print begins to peel off. It is a water based print on polyester (dri-fit).

While it looks incredible, I am worried about this feedback as they use this polyester polo as their uniform (they are a chain of gyms in Australia). Is there anything I can do to prolong the lifespan of the screen print. The company we use for our screen prints is a very large and works with Disney, Nike etc so I'm not sure how this has happened. Is there a way I can explain to them what I need them to do with the print to make it more durable?

I don't want this to be a re-occurring incident with our product.

Thanks for your time,
Jai

Dont use water based inks on poly or synthetics.
Use plastisol, problem solved.

Not necessarily. Plastisol has a lot of variants. Plus, over or under curing can make a great ink fail its wash test.

7 washes is trash. Just tell your printer it looked great but only lasted a few washes. Any good printer will take the opportunity to make it right.

Good luck!
