Shrinkage with the SIlk Chiffon over time
  • I have been printing on the silk chiffon for a long time with my epson pigment based wide format printer.
    The prints have slowly shrink over the best years as much as 12 percent. I don't steam them as I did not think you should but I am concerned over this shrinkage as they are for art pieces and they hang over (but not attached to) another printed piece on paper. Any thoughts on this. For example I did a 36 x 36 piece has shrunk about 10% in width and 9%in length. Again this is happening over time. Starts out at the correct width and length and then slowly shrinks.
    Help would be appreciate. It says you can not dry clean but I am wondering about dry cleaning if that would take the shrink out.
    Any help would be appreciated.
