Why do some garments have inconsistent fabric color?
Some of our products are pre-faded for an aged or distressed look, which is achieved through various processes such as stone wash, marble wash, and snow wash. These processes involve the use of mechanical abrasion to break down the fibers of the fabric, causing the color to fade and create a bleached, and even slightly worn-out appearance.
Unlike garments made from mass-colored fabrics, our garments are carefully washed and dyed in small batches. Therefore, even with the same dyeing process, there could still be minor variations in the garment's final color due to the intricacies of the process. Within the industry, these variations are often called "dyelot chromatism."
We strive to minimize disparities and ensure that the garments fall within the same color range, although slight variations in color depth may still occur.
Typically, 80% of our small-batch dyed garments have consistent colors with a color fastness rate of 2 or 3, which are within the standard range.
The inconsistencies in the fabric color of pre-faded garments are an inherent aspect of the small-batch dying process. They can also give the garment a unique and individualized character.
What if there is a shift in the position of my printed design?
During the direct-to-garment (DTG) printing process, there is a possibility of placement errors, which can result in a slight shift in the print position.
Placement errors typically occur for two reasons:
- Garment movement: During the printing process, the garment may shift slightly, causing the design to become misaligned. This can happen due to a variety of reasons such as the type of fabric, the garment's thickness, or the tension of the printing pallet.
- Material stretching or shifting: Depending on the material of the product, it may stretch or shift slightly during the printing process, leading to slight variations in the final print placement.
PODpartner maintains a placement error limit of 1cm. This means that if your printed design has a shift of 1cm or less from the intended position, it will not be considered a quality issue and is not eligible for a refund. We do our best to minimize the possibility of placement errors, but it's important to keep in mind that small shifts within this limit are a normal part of the DTG printing process.
