Had a screenprint done and not quite happy with the results. Trying to figure out what went wrong here. Hope you guys could lend your eye for a second.

I've tried to replicate a print on a polyester bomber jacket I've had since 2001. The original print was done directly to the garment. It is completely worn out by now. Had it done by a professional on an identical blank which I managed to source with great difficulty. And the results are well..

The lines of the original look much sharper, no jagged edges. The inkt of the new one looks much thicker, has bled out, cracked in some places - and lot of sharp details don't show up on the print. But see for yourself:

Any thoughts on why the printer might have used such a low mesh count. Maybe something to do with the inkt? From what I'm told it's some finnicky inkt and because it needs to adhere to a nylon surface it has to be heated up and is rather thick but i'm unsure about the specifics.

Thanks for the suggestion though but I'm using period correct vintage MA-1's for this.
