For this part of your guide we have looked at tips and recommended practices for the printing process element of discharge printing.
Firstly, are the colours vibrant and as expected by the customer? Is the ‘feel’ right and does it meet customer expectations and how durable will the printed image be?
The only viable method to ensure that your garment has been successfully printed and cured is to test it yourself. To do this take one of your printed garments and wash it at the recommended temperature and check that your image is as you expected it to be.
If you have been able to achieve all of the above, getting it right first time and using safer consumables with low environmental impact, you can give yourself a pat on the back!
We hope that this 2-part guide has helped make clearer the complexities that come with discharge printing and we leave you with just one final piece of advice – please follow the manufacturers’ instructions for your ink, garment, emulsion etc. Best of luck.
