brushed twill hats??????

Posted on Tue, 22 Mar 2005 at 10:01



Does anyone have any good suggestions on printing gold ink on dark brushed twill hats? I'm having trouble with opacity, detail. Flasing tends to move fabric..Also have some hats with seam dowm the middle...Any help would be greatly appreciated..

First, for the opacity issue, I use a Puff additive, available from most ink suppliers. Do several test runs to get the best color with the least amount of Puff. Too much will cause it to almost fall off the hat. Depending on your press for printing hats, I make a build up on the platen leaving a space in the middle for the seam. It will take some trial and errors but it will work. You will always have some distortion over the seam but, again, trial and error. Happy printing!
