Printing Water-Repellent Jackets

Printing Water-Repellent Jackets

A tip recently published in “Printwear” by John Levocz.

Some jackets can have a water-repellent coating that will potentially become an issue when screen printed on. The coating is designed to help water from saturating the garment, but if it is so good that it is blocking the water from penetrating the garment, it will also inhibit the ink from bonding correctly to the jacket. If the ink is not bonding correctly, the abrasion resistance and adhesion will be compromised.

Five Minutes

New post from Marshall Atkinson at Atkinsontshirt.com. How long does excellence take?  Sometimes it can stretch out for hours or days, but on the other hand sometimes it’s just a few moments of your time.  We’re all “busy”, but are we too busy to do the right thing?  Are we too busy to spend five minutes on improvement?  What can you make better?

Here’s a brainstorm dump on things you can do in your shop in five minutes that just might make the difference between ok and freakin’ awesome.

Secret Shop Strategies for Shirt Sampling Success

Secret Shop Strategies for Shirt Sampling Success

Have you been pulling your hair out lately?
Samples for the most part are for someone else’s final decision making usually, but they can be for other purposes too, such as a photo shoot or a quality control procedure.
The intent for the article is to be more or less a walk through the sampling process to help you define your strategy on what might work for you in your shop.  Just read and use what you like and change or discard the rest.
Ok, let’s get started…
