FAQs
Q:
A:
It is not necessary to use a shirt form and/or sheet of cardboard between layers.  Thin, “tissue” tees and other very thin fabrics may require using a T-shirt painting form, sheet of smooth cardboard, or a piece of parchment paper slipped between layers as extra precaution.  Please evaluate your garment before beginning your design.
 
Q:
A:
Heat setting is recommended for best durability.  Allow the printed design to dry overnight.  Heat set the painted surface using a dry, hot iron and a pressing cloth.  Lay pressing cloth over the painted fabric and iron the painted design for 30 seconds, lift the iron and move it to another section of the painted design.  Your iron should be set at the highest setting allowed for the decorated fabric, no steam.
 
Q:
A:
Yes, your screen printed design may be embellished with gems or crystals.  Follow gem or crystal manufacturer’s application instructions.
