    Wondering how long the printing lasts on rashgaurds? couple washings? 10 washings? I've seen some fall apart like next day and some last a while. I guess I'm wondering what brands printing holds up and which ones dont????

    Got a new Sprawl one I wore for the first time yesterday and washed. Washed lightly (inside out as well to preserve the screen printing and then Hung dry and there are already lil parts of the sprawl logo coming off. The actual RG is great, but the crappy printing is sorta of a dissappointment. I will probably be buying an HCK rashguard from SSFGear.com here since they go up to higher sizes than most just to try it out.

    I would have thought Sprawls would have held up really well due to what I've seen from their shorts.

    I never expect much from screen printing to tell you the truth, but I have screen printed NBA/NFL replica jerseys and they have been washed alot and hold up better unfortunately.

    We've found for this sport, screen print is definitely not the way to go. We started using heat transfers (that stretch with the RG) and never looked back. Actually, everything but our shorts are transfers, except the embroidery on the shorts and hats.

    Hunter uses transfers and they come off almost while you wear them.

    Our xfgear Rashguard Prints last for years. If you Get one of our white rashguards then we use somthing we call "Rattooed" and it is actually inked into the material and it will never come off or fade.

    Getting the print to stay on Rashguards is not easy. You can't screenprint in the normal way because it will crack and peal on the rashguard material. We pretty much finally got it down pat but every once in a while we will have a shipment that we have problems with. Since we guarantee all "Authentic" Gameness products under normal wear and care, we are very picky with our products but even with that in mind, sometimes things still get messed up!

    HCK used to sell rashguards that were sublimated therefore the print would never come off. The problem was it was very, very expensive to do this, thus his rashguards were $70.00.

    I have not personally seen XFGear's rashguards in person, but from what I understand, I think they probably have the print down to a science. If they are actually putting the dye into the material instead of on top of the material, which is very close to sublimation, they probably can guarantee the print will last for years.

    I will post pictures of our rashguards tonight. I have been wearing the same one 2-3 times a week for the last 6 months and it's washed after every use and it still looks great. I am 100% pleased with the product and will be releasing it in a few weeks for sell.

    The XFgear rashguards are the best in the business. Their quality and custom work is worlds beyond the rest. We are close with the SSF rashguards but we can't offer the custom work and the brite colors that XF can.

    I haven't set a price yet, but it will be under $35 for the loose or tight fit.

    If you guys like dealing directly with SSF then you can buy all his quallity stuff and also get XFGear Stock stuff dirrecly from him. SSF is now an authorized dealer for XFGear. So now you can get both SSF and XFGear quality products in one place.

    Hi Guys,

    This is my first post on the Sherdog Forums. I've been reading them though, for over 5 years, but just started my business two years go. Here are some images of my newly developed sublimated designs. I've tried hard to finally get the process down along with the price. These styes will all retail between 34.95-44.95 CA.

    We'l have them available soon for purchase on our website.
