How can I avoid separations overlapping on a T-shirt print?

How can I avoid separations overlapping on a T-shirt print?

The first thing I would check on the job is the screen tension. Screen tension has much to say about influencing the registration of images. Typically, low tension is an underestimated culprit of many things. However, the opposite can also apply. If one screen is high tension and the other ones are low, registration can also be out of sync.

Supplement with Sublimation

Diversification is fast becoming the “power word” of the industry. It used to be that your business was identified by its specialty — screen printing, embroidery, transfers, engraving, etc. But the new reality is that many shops are losing revenue opportunities because they can’t handle all their clients’ needs, which may include apparel, signage, awards, promotional products and more. 
Today’s customers are looking for one-stop shops to accommodate most or all their needs. Let’s say you have an opportunity take on a 5K run as a client. Chances are you will be printing T-shirts for staff, participants and onlookers. But such an event offers opportunities beyond apparel, including awards, signage, promotional products and gifts — none of which lend themselves to screen printing. If you can’t deliver on all of it, you may not get the business at all.
