Add lettering to bike jersey?
The jersey I'm looking at is advertised as being "made from scientific polyester micro fibers" whatever that means.
I want to buy one in a solid color but add lettering to the back of it. My wife has some basic silkscreening equiment and has made shirts for her mom's daycare before but there is a big difference between screening onto cotton shirts and synthetic wicking fabrics.
I prettymuch ruled out "iron on transfers" as the fabric would probably melt, but is there any other way to add lettering to a jersey?
If someone in your area does custom printing on tshirts with a dye sublimation setup, they can put your artwork onto your polyester shirt. That's how the custom jerseys are done -- they just do it onto a white fabric before it is sewn up.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dye-sublimation_printer covers the technology.
I got a couple of basic white jersies and had fronts and backs done -- up to 11x17 was the biggest size the fellow I worked with could do. Not quite as nice as a full custom one, but MUCH cheaper.
Printing black onto any color will probably come out black. I don't know what happens if you put a color onto colored fabric -- does red onto a yellow jersey give you orange? Ask the printer.
