Default 3g jet opaque washing problems

Hi, new to the forums and have searched for my answer but still unsure. i own a gifts business and have just started to do tshirts and hoodies.. ive got the JPSS and lights to be perfect even after washing but i just cannot get the same with the darks and 3g jet opaque. what settings does everybody use on the heatpress? im using an inkjet epson rx585 and my heat press. it pressed fine and looked good but as soon as it was washing it crinkled, peeled and had creases all through it. what can i do to help this? i pressed for 25 seconds with teflon at 175 degrees c, peeled after 20 seconds and then repressed with parchment for 7 secs then peeled cold. any help?
also while im posting do you guys have any special techniques for hooded sweatshirts or should i just press the same as tshirt? thank you x

from my limited reading I don't think your pressing at the right temp. 175 seems real low to me. Should be more like 350.

Unless I've read wrong.

Also I heard people wait 24hours to wash their shirts for 1st time. Are you waiting?

Are you using Pigment ink in your printer?

The OP said 175C meaning it is in centigrade. When converted 175C is equivalent to 347 Fahrenheit which is close to 350F.

DOH!! Okay missed that. I thought everyone refrenced in Fahrenheit here. I know all my presses read out Fheit.

Okay using pigment ink and waiting to wash?

yeah i'm waiting 24 hours, the crinkles pretty much came out when i ironed it but still have a couple of edges peeling. i washed it as i would normally wash a shirt as i felt thats how my customers will wash so just normal 40c wash! using dye ink but cant change over to pigment at the moment, the jpss ones are perfectly fine with that ink so wasnt sure if it was just a temperature of timing thing with the peeling. thanks all

Fading will happen especially with dye ink but generally mine hold up well after a number of washes. Do u cut by hand? That's what i do as i cant afford a cutter. I generally use the same colour around any text as the shirt.

Try 200 celcius for 30 seconds. Let cool down. Stretch tshirt a few times then repress for 8 seconds. That's the procedure i use.
