Hi,

Did you use a heatpress to after printing on dark T-shirts?

Yes,
Don at SWF East recommended a single press at about 2 1/2 min for Black shirts.

Those pics are completed product.

Hi Deana,

No doubt you can press for less time at a higher temperature and get decent results. We simply follow the ink manufacturers' recommendations - we feel it is best to let the folks who make the ink tell us time and temperatures.

If it works for you, why change?

Happy Printing

That would be an interesting new topic if you know how that's done I remember reading a few posts where people were talking about different types of washes and how to get it done.

Just stick it in the general t-shirt selling discussion, Rodney can always move it later if he has a better place to put it. Seems like you are pretty busy, so it might be better to just go ahead and write it while you have the time!
