Default Can you re cure screen printed t shirts with a heat press?

I have recently had some t shirts made and after one wash they are already starting to crack. This is making me anxious and I want to know if I can re-cure them with my heat press to avoid them cracking in the future?

This is more so in relation to the ones I will be selling to my customers, if the one I own is a lost cause because it is already cracking then that’s okay. I just want to know if using the heat press on the other ones I haven’t sold yet would be a good solution ?

Not really... I done it, but it's a crap shot... occasionally you get lucky. You may have better luck running them through your dryer again, if the haven't been washed. If you are going to press them, remember to cover the image with a sheet of teflon. Best to bite the bullet, learn for your mistakes and reprint. It's important to keep your customers happy! Speaking from 45+ years of screen printing experience! Good Luck!

Yes, you can cure with a heat press. It is what I use.

I would try a few and see what happens. Assuming they haven't been fondled and folded and fooled with a lot, they shouldn't have cracked much yet on their own.
