Top 10 Bonehead Apparel Decorator Business Blunders

Top 10 Bonehead Apparel Decorator Business Blunders

With a couple of decades in the industry and years talking to shop owners over the phone, in their shops, networking events, or in my trade show classrooms I’ve heard a lot of stories about shop struggles and mistakes that have been made.  “If we had only done something” is a common refrain.  It’s easy to look back and say that.  Harder to look ahead into the future and figure out what to do next.  Of course I’d like to say that my pencil doesn’t even have an eraser, and that I don’t make mistakes too, but that’s not true either.  As I like to joke, I make mistakes all the time…just ask my wife she’ll tell you some!  Mistakes and blunders are going to happen.

How can I protect and clean platens for a longer heat press life?

Nothing lasts forever, but the better you take care of your heat press, the longer you avoid a breakdown. Be sure to regularly and thoroughly clean the upper and the lower platens. They should be kept free of dust and dirt as well as adhesive residue and ink.

When should I use heat transfers over direct screen printing?

When should I use heat transfers over direct screen printing?

Most consumers can’t differentiate between a high-quality heat transfer decoration and direct printing. Screen-printing technology produces most high-quality heat transfers, and there are many heat-transfer inks designed for a variety of fabrics. Special effects, like dimensional puff and glitter, can produce stunning garment decorations.

Do I need to run my 50/50 cotton/polyester or 100 percent polyester garments through the dryer prior to printing?

Do I need to run my 50/50 cotton/polyester or 100 percent polyester garments through the dryer prior to printing?

This is not so much a question as it is a procedure that many decorators employ to deter dye migration. The theory is that by running your 100 percent polyester garments or poly blends through the dryer prior to printing, you can burn off any excessive residual dyes, and they float out the dryer exhaust.
