Why do my plastisol inks change during my run?

Why do my plastisol inks change during my run?

Overflashing is one of the most commonly misused practices in textile printing. Depending on platen, dwell, and flash temperatures, your inks can transform into a gummy mess or drop low in viscosity, which makes quality control unpredictable. The purpose of flashing is to gel the top layer until it is touch dry.

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.

Lending a Hand Helps More Than Just the Other Person

New post from atkinsontshirt: There’s no doubt in my mind that everyone, and I mean everyone, struggles with daily challenges.  I don’t care who you are, what you do, how much money you make, or how talented you are…there is something going on every day that is incredibly challenging.  Guess what?  Typically, other people around you could help conquer that problem.  Are you too afraid to ask?  On the other hand, are you too afraid to lend a hand?

How can I achieve a soft hand yet stretchy, durable prints on nylon/Lycra and cotton/Lycra fabrics?

One of the best features of nylon/Lycra and cotton/Lycra fabrics is their lack of polyester. This prevents them from bleeding dye into the ink films during the cure process.
