7 Mistakes To Avoid When Printing Non Woven Bag

Printing Non Woven Bag

Considering that the process of printing non-woven bags requires the use of latest technology, chances of making mistakes are very high. Even for persons who consider themselves techno savvy some mistakes tend to occur from time to time. The following is a list of 7 mistakes to avoid when printing non-woven bags.

1. Forgetting to mirror the image

Reflecting the image before printing or cutting is crucial. you would find yourself in a big mess if you run and entire order of, say, thousands of bags through the cut and print processes only to realize at the heat press stage just before pressing on the heat press that you have not mirrored your designs. It can be the most costly mistake you have ever made.

2. Placing the transfer upside-down

This mistake affects even the most experienced persons. After going through an extensive run of orders you may realize that the transfer is actually upside-down. This will take you miles back. To avoid, make a compete garment from the beginning to the end, including pressing the same, prior to printing and cutting your entire job. This will ensure that you have correctly taken all the steps to print it and it is likely all the rest will be correct. Luckily, there are industry software programs with prompts before sending the job to print/cut inquiring if you would actually like to mirror the image. This comes in handy for persons who tend to make this continuing problem. Some transfer manufacturers recommend utilizing a cover sheet above the design. This practice minimizes chances of making this mistake, or better still making the process of rectifying the mistake less time consuming.

3. Not using the right solution for clear/transparent paper

This time, the mistake does not lie on the heater. After pressing the heater correctly and following all the settings on the available on the application sheet, you realize the design is nowhere on the garment. When you are decorating dark colored bags, use the appropriate transfer technology-opaque transfer technology. Remember printing on clear paper before pressing onto dark designs does not work. Transfer paper manufacturers specifically make solutions for dark colors hence you should first know what color you will eventually transfer the transfer to so as to select the most appropriate solution.

4. Using the wrong temperature

Different garments have different melting points and thresholds. Similarly, there are particular adhesives ideal for low temperature applications. If, for instance, you are using 400 degrees Celsius for all fabrics on the heat press, you may end up melting some items. Be particularly careful when choosing a heat transfer for each specific type of garment. Polypropylene bags are the toughest, yet there are some compatible heat transfers capable of applying heat at low temperature in shorter durations of time. Caution must be exercised lest this problem is confused with discoloration of burgundy bags when pressed. In most cases, you will observe a big press coloration which almost always disappears within 15 to 20 minutes.

5. Not observing rules for heat pressing making the decoration peel off

This mistake occasion a very unwelcome scenario especially when you are decorating your non-woven bags. When the decoration in the garments fails in the customer's hands, the customer feels cheated. Be sure to implement the following rules on heat pressing to avoid this;

- Always preheat your garment-this will aid in the release of moisture as well as wrinkles that can negatively affect adhesion. Lock the press down, possibly severally, for a few seconds on each bag, till you can see no moisture escaping.

- Ensure enough pressure-remove any hindrance to enough pressure by raising the press section up using pillows and pads. If there are any buttons, seams or collars on the pressing section, they will absorb moisture intended to be evenly distributed to your garment. You can counter the same by either increasing the pressure or removing the deterrents.

- Follow time and temperature specifications-higher temperature and/or more time is not always best. Transfer adhesives require specific settings; be sure to use them to get long-lasting results

6. Crooked designs

This happens to be the most common mistake with non-woven bags. The big question is; is there really a way of making sure everything is lined up correctly? Unfortunately, there is not, unless you use rulers and lasers. Yet there are some simple measures of minimizing crooked designs from occurring.

Start by making sure that the bag is loaded directly onto the machine. One technique commonly employed is to line up the label with the backbone of the machine. Once the bag is correctly loaded, the task becomes a little bit easier.

Since many at times loading straight is not possible, consider using this technique: fold the bag in half before pressing a center line in your garment. This line acts as a placement mark either for centering the designs or positioning them correctly for side print. Alternatively, there are some tools that can help you out. Examples include see-through plastic alignment gratings that make sure that the bag is on right. For optimum product efficiency, there are even more elaborate systems for instance systems projecting a laser line straight onto the garment.

Even though powerful tools are available for the task, some people still choose to keep it simple by doing it by eye or by employing a homemade template or even a simple ruler. For instance placing three fingers down from the top of each bag is a very good reference that is handy. Whatever you will opt for, make sure you learn from you're your mistakes and devise a strategy to keep everything straight.

7. Omitting care instructions

It is always advisable to include care instructions on each and each and every non-woven bag so clients can take good care of the bags and use for a long time. If the bag fails within a short period of time, customers tend to shift the blame to the manufacturer even if the mistake lies squarely on their hands. To encourage them take good care of the same, encrypt instructions on how to go about, say cleaning and storing, and you will receive a bi reward in the form of customer loyalty and even marketing.
