i wonder if anyone can suggest how to solve my patchy transfer problem ?
i am using ht pigment inks
100% cotton AAA ts
when i do test prints on some test fabric i bought ( the closest to t shirt material i could find - i think its part lycra because it is very stretchy ) the transfers are perfect, SOLID DARK blacks, amazing!
but when i use my t shirts, they are garbage
its like the ink only adheres to every second thread or something ?
i am following the instructions to a t
has anyone seen this problem before that can suggest a fix ? longer press, shorter press, give up etc
Try lint rolling before pre-press. When you press your pushing the loose fibers into the shirt and harder to lift them with the roller. Also I would up the temp by 5 degrees F. Last thing you can try is peeling hot. I do not wait. Then I post press for 8 seconds with teflon for a smoother feel. Good luck.
Also from the picture I am seeing the shirt you are using looks ribbed with the little colums going down it that might be part of your probelem becuase i only transfer on flat non ribbed shirts (atleast i think thats what they call them)
