Make sure you have sourced the correct fabric to make the garments your customers desire. Not all 100 percent polyester is created equal. Things like stain guards and the weave style can impact your image once it is pressed. Always test the feel of the fabric once it is sewn together, and the image quality once pressed before committing to large rolls of it.
