Troubleshooting sandpaper-textured prints

Posted on Wed, 23 Aug 2006 at 23:24



I'm having an issue on our automatic that prints on certain brands of shirts are coming out with a rough finish. Some of them will even be smooth when it's flashed, and then rough when it comes off the conveyor. Other times texture is immediately evident while the garment is still on the press. Platens are clean, print isn't sticking to screen... This is most noticeable with white ink through a 110. Slower squeegee speed helps, but definitely does not eliminate the problem.

Any thoughts?
