Why the piqué quality is key when printing a polo shirt? We tested our “B&C fine piqué”, check the results.

Some people doubt the print accuracy that can be achieved on a piqué polo fabric. We took up the challenge and screen tested our B&C Fine Piqué and compared the results with a Standard Piqué. Look at this, it’s without comment:

Another interesting benefit of B&C Fine Piqué: its even and flat surface enables perfect colours reproduction.
When you print coloured visuals, you can be sure the colours will come out bright and vivid.
When working with other open weave piqué, the ink simply falls through, so the colour coverage is not consistent and comes out faded.

The video we made of it shows you how much the quality of the “Piqué” impacts the quality of the print.
Experts have been testing B&C Safran Piqué. They were looking for the limits of the fabric and have tested thin lines, details, engravings, tiny symbols normally used on paper, as well as big flat tints or bright multicolour designs. Water based, discharge, plastisol screen printing or DTG (Direct To Garment)…whatever the technique, the results are amazing!

Outputs of this test

When screen printing a polo shirt, the quality of the piqué is crucial.

If you want to achieve a faultlessly screen print, you need the smoothest and most even surface with the less hairy yarn possible. This will ensure the perfect detailing and a better end-result of your design. The unique superior quality of the 100% ring-spun combed cotton B&C Fine Piqué has an ultra-tight honeycomb structure, giving a perfectly smooth surface for decoration. This clearly sets it apart from other promotional polo shirt fabrics, allowing for finer prints and perfect detailing.
