Mis-Print Monday: A Bit of a Stretch
We recently ran a pre-production sample print on this 100% cotton fleece boxer. Our client was most concerned about achieving a clean print over the seam. Done. However, we received a complaint that the ink was cracking at the point of the seam. We didn’t have any of Rutland’s new Endurance Plus ink on hand and dye-migration was not a major concern anyway so went with a custom mixed white ink using Spand-e-sol clear base (also from Rutland) and resampled. The stretch characteristics of the new ink made the print more playable and solved the cracking issue. Luckily this was just a sample print and not a production run as it could have been a real disaster.
