The last time the Gildan rep was here he gave me a few samples to try and I was surprised the Gildan 100% polyester performance range actually printed really well even on black.
I have had great luck with the G800 line from gildan they are 100% poly but kind of behave and feel like cotton. We are starting to use a lot of that these days

So far we havn't had much luck with Polyester but then thinking about it we havn't done too much testing as we are running most of the time with our own shirt range. Do you do anything with the dryer or just run it though at the same setting?

Do you have to use as much spray as the 2000 range?

Thats my pet hate with Gildan you need so much more spray and white ink to get a decent print.

@Titchimp It depends on the product and the result your trying to achieve.

Black is pretty painful I would recommend turning down your dryer temp and running for longer.

The Orange Hi Vis had no problem being dried at normal temps / times.

But I did find if I ran the dryer at 135 degrees C the Dye migration was nearly completely gone.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks that you need a lot more spray for gildan. We use a lot of gildan in our lines I only use 5% more spray for the 8000 series the say the 2000 or 5000 because the 8000 is polyester I do dry it at a lower temp which is 245F or 118C and I dry it a min or two longer depends on how much white I am using in the design and the color of the shirt. But at that low I get zero dye migration.

The key to using polyester is definitely drying temps. With some exceptions mind you. For any blend 50% polyester to 70% polyester I dry the garment at 245F if 100% polyester or if there is a lot of nylon or anything else weird in the blend I dry it 200F. This how ever takes a very long time I will dry it 200 for about 20 mins once the ink is still kinda sticky at this point which is ok. I turn up the dryer to 210F for another 10-20 mins. This is just enough heat to cure the ink the rest of the way but it because it is already slightly dried there is no dye migration getting into the ink and changing the colors. It works but it is a pain if you have to do a lot of them. We try to avoid taking orders for the Kornit with odd blends like that but we have sales people that just don't get it no matter how many times I tell them it won't work well or it's not a big enough time frame to get these all done in if they really want them. I try to avoid anything over 50% poly but some times I can't

I know people were talking on this thread about parts, we needed 6 new wiper blades for under the heads, i think were charged about $20 per wiper from kornit. Just had them in and they look like one long blade cut into lengths. One has the brand and type: Unitex ULON HP Squeegee 0815 Batch 50999/1

Though this might help save some people a little bit of cash.
