Exclamation [problem] Using JPSS for inside neck labels

Hello! I've been in and out of these forums reading just about everything I can for a few months and this would be my first post.

I've recently decided to start up a tee company and its just getting it's feet off the ground so I want to make sure that everything is right and successful before orders start coming in. As of right now I've just been printing shirts for personal use for myself and a few friends.

Right now I am using Gildan Heavy Cotton (100% cotton). I have the outside designs down very well, haven't had any issues for the most part. But I've recently added a custom label with my business logo to the inside of the tees and I've noticed with the JPSS that it will crack after a couple washes, it's fine after the initial press but then after it's washed a couple times I can run my fingers over the design and flakes will come off.. And my black tees using Jet Opaque are fine other than some curling.

I'm guessing it could be a result of many things. But I turn the tee inside out and place it on the press so just the back is on the mat and the area to press is at the edge, possibly my plate isn't the same temperature at the edge? Or the pressure is different?

TLDR: I would appreciate any/all tips about heat pressing JPSS into the inside neck of white tees for a label. Thank you so much.

It could be the neck hem that's interfering. You need to make sure that the area being imprinted is the "highest" point and is making full contact with the heat. You may need to put something under that area. Like a Teflon pillow or something.

I do have it at the VERY edge so the neck hem hangs off the edge of the mat, I was thinking that due to the peeling that either the pressure or heat at the edge of the plate is not the same as the middle of the plate?

Most presses are going to be cooler at the edge.

Get a silicone printing pad (print perfect pads is one example) and then press the shirt in the middle of the press with no issues of seams or getting enough pressure.

Also, check to make sure that the heat is evenly distributed. You can get some testing strips from Stahls or you can get a cheap laser temp gun from Harbor Freight.

Just get a small 12cm heat press. They are perfect for neck labels.

i have not done neck labels with jpss, but i have done lots of small sleeve labels/logos
actually just pulled one out to look at that is years old, and it still looks like day one

same difference in my book, as the hem is always in the way

my solution was to simply take a folded new sweat sock and put it in the sleeve,
for you simply place it under
place the design/sock/press -area in the center of the press and adjust your heavy-heavy pressure to this raised area
(keep the ribbed part of the sock on the bottom)
obviously you want to do all your neck labels at the same time so the pressure/sock are right there

you should use 50/50 blends for jpss (i like the gildans, but whatever)
after initial press, peel immediately and give the area a light stretch vertically and horizontally,
cover with parchment paper, repress for 10 secs, remove parchment paper and do the light stretch again
do not wash for 24 hours minimum

bob's your uncle!

Printing JPSS can be kind of scratchy. May irritate some necks.

What method are you using to print the outside of your shirt?

Plastisol transfers are a great way to do neck labels.
