I screen printed a name on the back of a jersey and because the jersey had two layers the shirt moved and the print looks bad. My question is this. Can I get some vinyl cut a little larger than the screen print and have it pressed on top of the plastisol ink and have it stick? Or do I need to order another jersey and start over?

You can try. I wont pretend to be a screenprinting expert, but I have seen instances where it works and instances where it does not work.

What we tell our customers is that the adhesive on most heat applied vinyls is not really meant to apply to screenprinting, however depending on what was used to create the screenprinted art, it still may or may not work. We always recommend testing, so in your case you can try it, and really do not have anything to lose.

I would advise you overlap the screenprint so that the vinyl has fabric to adhere to as well.

Not enough information.

What garments? Which transfer supplier? Have you checked the actual temperature of your heat press? What pressure are you using?
