There is a great deal of variation on the way digital inks interact with a specific textile material. The ink performance can vary significantly depending on the exact chemical characteristics of the textile and the way the fabric is woven or knitted. It is not uncommon for garment manufacturers to treat the fabric with special chemicals for various reasons. Thus, the performance of Genuine AnaJet inks on a specific fabric may vary significantly and the ink may not work for a given garment type. AnaJet does not guarantee its inks will work on a specific garment. If you are printing on an unfamiliar fabric, it is always necessary to test your results before beginning a production run.
