I have been Screen Printing shirts for about a year. A customer just asked if we could screen print the back of a stadium chair. I have no idea how to do this. Can I do this with plastisol ink? Cure the same? How do I make sure the back of the chair stays stuck to the platen incase in needs more than 1 coat. The back of the chair slides off which makes it easier. What is the best way to do this? Here is a picture of the back of the seats.

Here at our shop we just use plastisol ink, and print it like anything else. We use ELT (Extreme Low Temp.) ink which flashes at a really low temp. The only trouble we run into with the seat backs is that they might shrink a little bit with the first flash. So, we put it on the pallet and flash it before we even print.

Also, we have our flash unit turned down to a bare minimum. The hotter the flash the more shrinkage there will be. Other than that print it just like you would a shirt.

Hope this helps.

I'm not really sure of the material. They just gave me the backs and there is no tag. I will ask if there is a tag in the other part of he chair. Will adhesive hold this to the platen for a second hit after flash?

I do these quite a bit, but with vinyl. You could screen print them but, as has been stated, the material is rough and can be harder to get a smooth, detailed print. They are 100% poly. I've only ever done vinyl as I don't want to deal with setup, cutting, and tear down. I usually do orders of 6 or 12 at a time though.
