removing screen printing.

Recommended Posts

since Champs is a corperate sponsor for the NHL, they are giving their Employees(in local markets, i do believe) free jerseys, that have the champs logo on them. one of my good friends is a store manager, and half his employees could get a Shiat less about hockey, so he's getting me a jersey. i was wondering if there was any way i could get the screen printed CHAMPS logo off it without damaging the jeresy itself.

Wash it a few times. That always did the trick for the old NFL replicas.

Screen prints are meant to be washed in hot or cold water, and survive wear and tear. If you tried to heat it you'd likely be left with a residue in spots. Enjoy your Champs jersey!

What kind of material is the Champs Sports logo screenprinted onto? I know that there is a way to remove dried ink from cotton T-shirts (my girlfriend did this a few times to correct some stray ink spots on some of her T-shirt designs), but I'd have to ask her how she did it when she gets home from work tonight. I should have an answer by tomorrow...

At the screenprinting place I work at during the offseason, we use acetone (sp?), I believe, to remove stray ink spots. It's applied after it has been through the dryer, and quality control will sometimes use it when they're checking shirts that have been done for awhile, so I assume it doesn't have to be applied immediately after being printed. Though I'm not for sure on how long or what materials, exactly, it can be used on, it's something worth checking, I guess.

Sounds like a reasonable solution. And when you get frustrated that the screen printing isn't coming off, you can huff the acetone and feel better about it all.

How big and prominent is this logo? Got any photos?

Perhaps there's other options to cover it up rather than remove it.

I am silk screen printer. I use a chemical called SR-97. It gets both cured and un-cured inks out. You need to use some pretty high pressure to blow it out, but it works.

I'd be thinking patch -- large or small are both readily available online.

If it's a legit NHL team jersey with a small Champs logo (like a typical sponsored giveaway), I'd look for some kind of commemorative patch for that team.

If it's a "Champs" jersey, maybe the colors lend it to some NHL team.

So it's below the main patch? OK, that makes it tougher.

Front numbers? :)

Maybe some kind of checmical is the only solution after all.
