The process we intend to use is duplex. Color-fast dye is applied to both sides as the fabric travels between two rollers. These rollers have the same image on them, but they are mirror images of each other.
I evaluated dye-and-discharge printing and like it too. But I decided it wasn’t quite as sharp as the duplex method. As you’ll recall from your days at the textile academy, dye and discharge takes cloth that has already been dyed and knocks out the white areas of the image with bleach.
The beauty of these two methods is that both sides of the bandana have the same intensity. There’s no sense that you’re ever looking at the back the way you are with those disgusting silk-screened bandanas. Yuck!
Of course, each bandana actually has a back. You can tell you are looking at the back if the letters that say MADE IN USA are backwards.
