I recently did an order of 400 koozies only to find out the ink started bleeding on the koozie once they started using them. What are some important things I should know when customizing koozies? What ink is best on what material koozie? What temperature should I have the dryer at? Is there anything I need to add to the ink specifically for koozies? I have another order of 400 koozies to do and I don't want to make the same mistake. Please HELP!

Koozie material is foam. when you heat press or heat belt dryer, koozie will be damaged shape.
That's just the cheap ones.
The neoprene ones don't have this problem.

What ink and what do you mean by "bleeding".
If the issue is crocking (very common with red inks) then try adding more binder.
That's curable reducer for plastisol, and clear base for water based inks.
Obviously you have to make sure the ink is cured.
