Hi, All. This is my first post, however, I've been actively following post here on TF for quite some time now... Here's my question:

Has anyone ever heat pressed Thermoflex numbers under a cured plastisol Team Name? I'm not sure if I should heat press the Thermoflex numbers first and then screenprint front logo & back team name, OR the other way around. Any help will be much appreciated!

:confused:

Thanks for the info, Shep. But I had a couple more questions: do I need to cover the team name with something so that the plastisol wont gel? Or will the team name withstand the 330 degree heat press? Will I need to put anything under the shirt to protect the front logo (opposite the numbers)?

If you hit the plastisol with a teflon cover it just smooths out the ink. We use pressing to smooth out white ink and increase the optical brightness for jobs we want to look that way..:)

Heck, some guys even use presses to cure plastisol in a small small shop.:confused:

My reccomendation is Try It!:D

We test every theory put forth to us as noraml op procedure. We buy loads of clothes from thrift shops for sacraficial testing. Pays big dividends:)
