Default Printing on performance T-shirts

What do I need to know about printing on performance poly t-shirts? Can I use plastisol or do I need a special ink? Any tips or recommendations would be great! Thanks!

Well, if it's a light color you can sublimate.

Right now I happen to be wearing a Gildan DriFit with plastisol transfers from Versatrans. So you can do that, too.

If screenprinting you will want to use plastisol specially formulated for polyester. Otherwise you risk dye migration issues. Low cure plastisol cures at a lower temperature than normal plastisol which helps prevent migration issues.

Your go-to plastisol brand will have it. They all do.
