Printing pockets on the automatic

Postby beandip007 » Mon Jun 07, 2010 11:44 am

Hey everyone, I am new to the forums and will do my best to give good tips on good textile printing techniques, but one I have stumbled on is printing pockets on an automatic. We normally do the pockets on the manual and can do up to 6 colors on it, but it becomes really time consuming when you have to do a 1000 shirts. Has anyone experimented on pockets on the auto? What have you come up with to solve this issue? What platen would you recommend?

When i'm printing pockets on the auto, i burn the image center and upside down, and use sleeve pallets and load the pocket on there. other wise you could use your standerd pallets it would just take a while, you have to make sure each lines up and i wouldn't do more then one color the pockets like a double lined jacket and would move after each print, i hope this helps.

Ah, I agree with slideways. Exactly how we do it too. :)

Action Engineering offers a pallet that is great for printing on pockets. Yeah they are expensive, especially if you have a 10 station auto but the investment will pay off.
