Why do the images on some screen printed shirts become brittle and begin cracking with time?

0

Have you ever taken a pair of jeans out of the drier, only to be been burned slightly by one of its metal buttons or rivets? Depending upon which setting you use…it can get pretty doggone hot in there! In extreme cases, repeated exposure to high temperatures can make the ink brittle. This is why you might have noticed screen printed t-shirts where the image has begun to “crack” and fall apart. It is also precisely why we recommend drying your t-shirts on a low heat setting and preferably – turned inside out.
