Do I need a special kind of ink to screen print polyester?

Asked by landismasnor (4points) November 27th, 2013

I am wanting to screen print on a polyester jersey, is this even possible? Do I need to do anything differently or use a special ink?

I haven’t screen-printed for several years but when I did there were inks for cotton fabrics and inks for synthetics, the differences having to do with how fluids soak into each (cotton soaks up a lot more of the pigment medium).
