My company is buying work shirts with a printed logo for the production employees. Is there a type of t-shirt printing that is considered more "food safe"?
I've seen t-shirts where the printing is beginning to flake off and I can see this as being a potential foreign material contamination risk. I know embroidery could work but I'm looking for a printed option.
Hope someone can help! :)
Drawing on my days (a while back in years) selling printing and especially printed clothing...
The best and safest for a food company is offset printed - similar in nature to making a copy on your office copier.
Tell your uniform printer you want off-set printed shirts and that you need the ingredient list for the ink as some printing inks contain soy and/or carmine that come from beetles.
Embroidery could work, you might want to get a sample first as some will thread up after a short period of time and cause an issue for inclusion.
