First of all to print on nylon windbreakers you have to have a jacket hold down table. If you don't have that, good luck! Several Inks can be used, my best experiences always came from Internation Coatings, 2 part system. Multi-color prints require flashing the jacket first, then printing first color, flash, print, flash and so on till it is done. Not an easy product for amatuers.

Travelers,

I agree with you completely....

what we do is:

I'll send them through the dryer first...to get any shrink out of them first...or most of it.
I will then print with a 50/50 low bleed ink.....flash as little as possible....then hit it again.
ALL printing will be done while it is clamped in a jacket hold-down clamp......2 layers of fabric at any time is asking for trouble without a clamping system.

I gotta say that we only print wind breakers in 1-color. We use the Nylon ink additive to our regular plastisols and go from there. The jacket clamp is a MUST. We usually flash cure the Nylon inks as I have destroyed too many wind breakers running them through the dryer to want to do it much more.
