Hey all,
I printed some shirts for myself the other day and got some serious dye migration on a red shirt with white ink. I also printed the same design on purple shirts with no noticable migration as of yet.

I printed with Ryonet white which I was told by them was good for 50/50 blends on 110 mess. Print/flash/Print method with 2 strokes to each print. 50/50 Gildan Purple and Red shirts.

Like I said, the purple shirts are fine but the red has really bled through.

What did I do wrong?

Thanks
Craig

Ryonet white, while a good white, is NOT going to work for 50/50's (as you found out)

I dont know why they said it was good for such.

I use International coatings Poly white for 50/50 with good results, but most ink companies have a specific low bleed white for poly fabric.

I suggest you stick with 100% cotton until you get some poly white in your shop.

As stated the poly is the problem. And red is the biggest problem colour. Doesn't sound like you did anything wrong as such (other than use the wrong ink - but you were told it was the right ink).
