let me start by saying this is a great forum. :) i have asked some questions in the past that i look at now and know that they made no sense and no one hear was a wise a$$ about spelling and general grammer. aside from that i have been trying to get ink over seams

link that follows is a sample of what i am dealing with:

seam

so after calling multiple places i was told about a belt press that could be used to print on the seam. i called a company that owned a fairly large one and was told it was to hard to do. can anyone out there help with finding what i need done. i would like to use a water based ink so after the first wash it becomes significantly soft and not having that ink feel to it. is this the only way to achive a soft ink feel? any and all info can help. also companies that would consider this please send me your info through pm. thanks again

Re: seam printing

Water-based ink gives the softest print from my experience. Plastisol inks can be mixed with different additives to give it a softer feel, but water-based is the softest that I have seen. Yes, printing over seams is difficult. That picture you posted looks like it has about the best ink coverage you are going to get when printing over seams.

tags around the url of the picture for posting pics in forums
