Default Screening Cycle jerseys; is this possible?

I have a customer who wants me to print a few hundred Mt. Bike jerseys for his bike shop. I am concerned about the curing of the Plastisol on these shirts. I am not 100% sure, but I think they are either Lycra, Spandex, or Nylon. I was wondering if I will be able to cure the ink on these without a risk of melting the shirt. Has anyone done these before?

This is the Jersey that I am looking at printing on:

Is the imprint just single color or two color? You could have vinyl cut for them

Right now I am just in the starting discussion phase with the customer, but I am trying to go toward a single color. However, the customer in the past has had up to 6 colors on his tees. I just can't see printing 6 colors on a garment that has such a high stretch count, and having the fabric be so thin, I'd also be worried about scorching it or burning and melting it while flashing.

Pity the yellow was not white, as I have just printed a few with sublimation. The colours are amazing and never wash out. Although the stress is always there in placing the shirt. Takes a long time. But the customer pays premium for made up shirts.

Most of the cycling jerseys are done by sublimation as a cut-sew application. This means the sublimation ink is transfered to a roll or piece of fabric and then cut down to the panels to be sewn together. The sublimation allows the shirt to breath better than any other type of decorating technique and this is what the cyclists want. There might be a special screen printing ink that might adhere to the polyester fabric, but I am not sure how well it will breath.

Hope this helps.

Mark

I would strongly consider sublimation transfers.

Not a problem. Cut-Sew operations are huge in southern CA. If you ask around, I am sure you can find a large format dye sub printer that does cut-sew.
