I would guess that it would have less to do with the shirt and more to do with using a heat gun, with a heat gun you really have little control over how hot your getting a given area of the shirt, it'd totally dependent on the distance and amount of time you heat a area.....but then again a 50/50 shirt with the poly content would be more apt to scorch then cotton IMHO.Yeah I guess it is. That's happened three times with a 50/50 shirt. I have printed a bunch of 100% cotton shirts that didn't scortch. R 50/50 shirts prone to scortch marks from a heat gun?
And what's up with my plastisol ink here? Is that cuz of the 50/50 too?
that's because the cotton can withstand a higher temperature than polyester are you stopping at 325 on your temp gun? i've seen cotton go as high as 425 with white ink and not cause scorching. for stuff with an underbase you will want to stop at like 350 to ensure that the backside of the ink is hitting 325.Oh yeah I have a temp gun. It's just the poopy 50/50 blend that's tempermental with burning!
