Printing first then tie dying question
« on: April 16, 2018, 12:40:34 PM »
We are going to print on white tees so they can tie dye after.. BUt they want white ink..

I def want to print them first before i give them the shirts because i dont want to deal with any BS....LOL..

But the white orint will be fine, correct? it should not get messed up with the dying process would it?

Ive dont black ink and dark colored ink before and was never made aware of an issue.

I've done these both ways with success. That said, the two possible negatives to printing first are
1. If the white ink layer is not consistently sufficient, dye could sneak in where it's weak
2. With some tying techniques, it could be a little bit tougher to get a really tight tie where there is plastisol.

As I said though, the times that I have done it this way, it apparently worked fine as there were no complaints.
And, btw, I have never had bleeding with properly done procion dyes.
