We do them all the time. You need a jacket hold-down and need to flash the jacket before printing to tighten it up. Also, you can't print over seams. Obviously, the print won't be as crisp as on a t-shirt, but most companies that want Carhartt jackets printed want it cheaper because their employees use the jackets rough. If the jacket is a rain resistant, I add a little nylon catalyst to the ink for adhesion.
Thanks for the info Pat!, all good to know.
Do you have any experience printing on soft shell style waterproof jackets? We have some samples of some outerwear from Port & Company and some of them have a coating and some don't. Curious to know what ink will bond correctly and if they can hold up to the conveyor oven or heat press.
