Important Note to Screen printers and Decorators

  • It is critical to pre-test before printing the entire order. While some of our fabrics and colors are suitable for sublimation printing, high polyester content fabrics are at risk of dye migration during the printing process- resulting in dye bleeding and thermomigration (spot staining).

  • The critical element in polyester printing is accurate temperature control thru the dryer, flash and post-dryer – use a triple stack method to allow extra cooling time before stacking on top of each other to avoid image ghosting and dye migration. Use low bleed, high opacity special polyester inks on all polyester and polyester blend products. It is advisable to consult with your ink supplier.

  • Delta Apparel does not assume any responsibility for decoration problems or returns due to dye bleeding, thermomigration and ghosting.
