Lightbulb DTG Ink is Fairly Easy To Scratch Off, Why? How Can I Fix This?

I know it may be frowned upon by some, but we're currently trying out the roller method for pre-treatment. I made some sample tee shirts with different amounts of pre-treatment to find the line where too much treatment would be. Today we're looking through our wash test tees, and realized that the ink scratches off with the use of your fingernail (which absolutely doesn't happen with screen printing tees). We even went into our archives from shirts we'd printed on shirts that we bought already pre-treated, those scratched as well.
Has anyone else faced/ solved this issue?
I'm also eager to hear chosen final processes in getting the perfect tee.
