Printing across butt of fleece pants (seam)

how do you print across a seam - the image will not be on top of the seam but just on either side of it - but do I pull my squeege over the seam or use two small squeeges on either side. Would love to hear your techniques.

raise the off contact of your screen and put two square blocks on your platen so that you have a space for the seam to drop through so you can print it with out the spotty detail from the seam. You will want to spray tack the blocks into place so they don't move on you, the blocks are the same as a platen, but they just sit on the regular platen, for the under platen you will need to use a 10 inch board and the square blocks will prolly hang off of the edge a little, but it will allow you to put the shorts on there.

thanks, this is helpful! I am printing on black fleece sweatpants and will have to flash print - see any added problems that might occur that I should watch out for?
