Pre-heat shirt?

1325 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  IYFGraphics
Hey, does everyone run their shirts under the dryer once before printing, or is this necessary if you're working with FOTL, and other "pre-shrunk" shirts?
Are there other reasons to do it? ink flow maybe?

Not sure about screening but with heat transfers, it's to remove any moisture and flatten the fibers.
Just as Chuck said, for DTG we prepress for 10-sec to remove moisture, flatten the fibers, and give a nice wrinkle free surface to print on.

Hope this helps.
