Tips for screen printing hoodies

Hoodies have always been on the trend. Other than the hoodies that are available you can also opt for the one where you can print can anything you want on the hoodie. But to those who are printing these things on hoodie should have a knowledge of few things. Becuase a slight variation can get you the best results. In this articles, we will give you some tips and tricks for a better screen print on hoodies.

Things to consider
Printing on the hoodie is very different than printing on t-shirts because of thickness. Hoodies are thicker than the t-shirts and that is why many uses flashing to get good results. Also look out for shrinkage when you pass hoodie through a conveyor belt, for this always use a lower temperature. If a hoodie has zip in it than use a jig which allows this to pass through. This will ensure that you can a good sweep to clean.

Take care while printing on the backs
When you are printing on the back side of the hoodie the most important thing you need to make sure that hood doesn’t get in between while making the design. Many won’t mind if the design is a bit obscured, but for many graphics should be properly visible. For example, when you are printing a number or a name on the back than print it a bit on the downside so it can be visible.

Choose the right ink
Normally it is seen that a thicker ink is used because of the material’s thickness. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes you have to use a softer print to move over seams and zippers. Here the use of thin inks is recommended.

Be careful of shrinkage
Fleece is very prone to shrinkage and so proper care should be taken while printing this material. This is the main problem with the high temperature of flash cure unit. If there is even slight shrink than it can damage your entire final print.


Increase your cure time
Due to its thickness, fleets holds more amount of moisture than other substrates. Slow down your conveyor belt and see whether the fleece prints have been cured or not. Make sure that you don’t set your temperature more than 320 degrees.

Refine your printing process
Messing up a t-shirt might cost you a few bucks but damaging your hoodie can cause a large amount of money. And that is why we have provided you with some insightful tips to improve your printing process. So why start the process today? It is not easy to alter the process but once you have done it you will see some great results. When the ink comes off the dryer check its temperature to make sure it fully cured.

Most common screen printing mistakes


Mistakes are inevitable in daily life. But they are more so when you talk about screen printing because that will cost you money. Although there are many mistakes which are bound to happen some common mistakes can be always avoided and thus will save your extra loss. Here is the list of common mistakes that can be avoided:

Not cleaning your equipment
We all know how important is cleaning and when it comes to equipment cleaning is the first thing you should look to do. There are many instances where you might have left little fleck of ink left from your last print jobs, greases, and smudges that you might be left affect the quality of your equipment. To avoid this, clean your equipment regularly and decrease it between the projects. Also, clean your hands before using the equipment.

Check the print
Once you start using the print one common mistake that many do is not checking it regularly. Make it habit of checking your press before each and every run. Many skip this task in order to save time but it can have serious implications for the printer. Doing this will ensure that your printer will fine. Because over a period of time the bolts might loosen up from the pallets which will cause blurred images.

Not changing the mesh count
This is one of the most common mistakes that happen with almost everyone. Over the years there has the system where 110 mesh count is to required and used for every job. This information is then passed to the novice printers and they also start using 110 as a mesh count. Well, this count is true for most of the runs but it is not an ideal number for every job. You should this beforehand that which jobs require how many prints and you will avoid making this mistake.

Trusting internet sources or word of mouth
In this day and age, everyone wants to sell their products online. People have started to forget the traditional marketing and selling methods. This might be true for some but not everyone can be benefitted by this type of marketing. I think old and traditional methods of selling should be used by the printers again. Start making calls. See what the people want. See the prices offered in the market. Knock on the doors.


Not using spot gun
We mentioned how cleaning your equipment is essential. But there are many stains that can be removed using spot gun. If you are not using this than there are chances that you could be throwing away many products needlessly. Besides statins, spot gun can also clean grease spots, pin print of ink and stains.

Not using outdoor resources
There will be many times that you won’t have resources to handle the job. But that doesn’t mean you turn that away. You could always outsource jobs for a very nominal fee. For this, you could pair up with the freelancer or any large print shops.

Print and wear what you love!”
