Inking About Jersey Making
There are only a few ways that jerseys are decorated. Here’s a short explanation about each of them.
Images are printed using a special high resolution, full-color technology. While the prints are pretty soft, we’re able to use a special technique to remove very tiny lines or dots of ink to make the jersey feel even softer and make sure the design more durable. With this technique, the image may lose a little vibrancy, but we think it’s totally worthwhile to make the jersey feel as soft as a unicorn’s mane while adding breathability for the best athletic performance.
Ink is pushed through a silk screen with a design on it. Only the clear parts of the screen let the ink through. The ink sits on top of the fabric where it’s heated and set in place permanently.
Ink is turned directly from a solid into a gas using high heat and is absorbed by the fibers of the apparel.
