Pumping Up Performancewear Profits

With prominent athletic-focused brands leading the charge, performancewear has experienced dramatic growth in the past decade. More wholesale brands have added performance-focused lines to their offerings, creating endless options for customers — from unique, high-end styles to more basic, affordable ones.
As the category continues to become more accessible and widespread, decorators must ensure they not only understand the intricacies of the products, but also that they accurately convey their value to customers.

How to Prevent Ghost Images

How to Prevent Ghost Images

October is here and there is nothing like a good ghost story to make your hair stand on end. The ghosts in our story aren’t souls of the dearly departed, but they will haunt you nonetheless.
Say you printed an order of shirts, boxed them and sent them on their way. Nothing was out of the ordinary during your print job, so you go on the rest of your week as usual. Then your customer calls about their shirts and complains that you did something wrong and their shirts are ruined. When you get the shirts back, you notice a silhouette of the image printed on the backs and bottoms of each shirt.
The images are the result of a ghosting problem. Not real ghosts though. The Ghost Busters aren’t going to be able to help you out with this one, but luckily you aren’t the only one plagued by this epidemic. Ghosting is a problem that every screen printer will probably run into at least once in his or her career.
