Problems with curing lines

Postby latty87 » Thu Mar 10, 2011 4:33 pm

ok so basically what happens is once iv printed the shirt ill lift up the screen and go to cure the shirt, which im doing with a heat gun, virtucal lines start to show all over the shirt, i go over the image again and again but it still happens
im wonder if its because of this off contact setup? i have stuck pennies to corners of the screen to give it a bit of room between screen and shirt.
im using permaset waterbased ink at the moment
sometimes i can get a perfect print but most the time it has these lines, the lines are the fabric coming through the ink
am i pushing the ink too far through the fabric?
also on the inside of the shirt is the ink meant to come through? because most the time the ink can go through to the platten
again sometimes the ink goes through in places on the inside of the shirt.
