    Face coverings advice for a newbie.

    Hi all.
    Very new to all this so please be kind.
    I'm trying to Dye-sub some multi-layer face coverings on a Flat Tshirt press but I find that the top layer to be printed is not tight so I am getting wrinkles which cause bands of no colour on the product.
    Does anyone have any advice on how to achieve a good print?
    Many thanks in advance.

    Print the fabric before cutting/sewing it into the mask.
    There are advantages to being able to just sub onto a ready made garment, but making it up after subbing is the best approach in terms of print quality

    I think I read on here from Earl that a cap press works really well with ready made face masks.

    If you have one it might. E worth giving it a try.

    Thank you both for your replies.
    I am using ready-made masks so I'll try the cap press and report back.
    Thanks again.
