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 ?

Another option would be to put them again in the tunnel dryer.

And please, make wash tests to check the all the parameters of your machines.
