As a part of my work with HBI I was tasked with designing graphics for seamless, tubular knit shapewear and devising a printing procedure for them. These could not be printed as a normal garment because they could not be fitted over a conventional printing pallet. They are form-fitting, allow stretch and then revert to their original shape. If they are stretched while they are printed, the print is distorted. Since they are a knitted, tubular construction, they can not be printed prior to being assembled. Working with my printers, we devised a printing method. Additionally, we used a spandisol additive to allow the print to stretch without cracking when the garment is worn. This resulted in an entire business segment being moved from sourced production to our internal HBI facilities. I also worked on a solution for garments that require molding, but we determined that it is best to avoid a decoration directly on the areas to be molded.
