Inks for Blends

Blends

The 50/50 cotton/polyester blend has been created with both types of fibers to take advantage of the best qualities of each. A 50/50 blend is both breathable and tear-resistant. It is less expensive than 100% cotton and offers comparable comfort. The 50/50 blend prevents the fabric from shrinking, as cotton that has not been preshrunk is prone to doing. Screen printing on a 50/50 cotton/polyester blend t-shirt can be done using plastisol inks or water-based inks with the proper polyester-friendly additives. The major issue with screen printing on 50/50 fabrics is the tendency of deep dyes to bleed through light inks, especially with red, orange, and dark green fabrics. The best way to avoid such issues is to first print a grey underbase with a super low bleed ink. Rutland has a large portfolio of ink types to print on such blended substrates, as below:
