FLEECES BY INDEPENDENT TRADING COMPANY

We have created a quick guide for our favorite sweatshirt company to assist you in creating some awesome garments to keep you warm during the cooler seasons!

Some notable facts: Fleece is a blended material and any water based ink will have less success than a plastisol print. We can use plasticharge ink on the 80/20 cotton poly fleece with a great degree of success, but as always, plastisol is going to be your best bet for bright colors. Water-based will provide a soft hand, but the ink will not be as opaque.
