Anajet samples cleaned well.

I've been struggling to make a decision about what printing method to use to print some of my designs. Screen printing will work for some designs, but not for designs involving photographs, etc.
I got a couple of t shirt samples from Anajet; a black shirt with a very colorful design, and a white shirt with a very colorful design that included a photograph. I washed both shirts tonight. I didn't take any extra care, didn't turn the shirts inside out. Just carelessly threw the shirts in the wash like I normally would.
Wowzer! I was expecting some obvious fading, but there seemed to be no fading of colors at all. I didn't take any pictures of the pre-washed shirts so I can't make a comparison that way. Still, the just washed shirts looked great. I'm suprised. I assumed that there would be a great deal of fading. Ah, what do I know?
I'll wash the shirts several more times before I decide whether or not to use DTG printing.....Looking good though. What a relief.
I know that the quality of a printing job can depend upon the person operating the machinery, maintenance, etc....

Counting down the days until the next Bond movie comes out. Daniel Craig is a great James Bond!
