Discharge Printing With discharge prints fabrics are dyed prior to printing, then the design is applied with a chemical that bleaches out the color of the originally dyed fabric. One example is a white micro dot on a navy ground. The fabric is dyed navy, then the dots are “printed” with a chemical that takes away the navy color. You can identify these fabrics because: • the background color is the same shade on the face and back of the cloth; • the print design area is white or a different color than the background; or • if you look closely at the back of the fabric, you can see traces of the original background color in the print design area.

Differential Shrinkage One problem that is fairly common is differential shrinkage. This is where two fabrics with different finishes are sewn together. This presents a problem at seams where one fabric shrinks differently from the other. The result is puckering.
