How’s It Printed: Grandwheels Los Angeles

We were asked by SanMar to create and print a design with their new Port & Company® – Essential Pigment-Dyed Tee – PC099.  Distressed graphics printed with discharge ink would always be my first choice when working with pigment-dyed tees as the soft hand and subtle “grunge” is a natural fit for the washed and faded look inherent to the garment.  The only problem with this approach is, depending on the manufacturer’s process, any particular style or color of pigment-dyed tee may not be compatible with discharge ink. Therefore testing prior to design is required.  In this case the PC099 in Black discharged beautifully.  The following photos show the print process and results.
