I explored several printed samples

On organza silk, and light cotton fabrics.

I tested the size of the font. how it's readable on textile.

Made Several test: of colors, typeface size, fabrics, and overlaps of prints.

The test of overlap of prints was made to see if I could print a larger format than the plate. In this case without noticing the junction between the prints but, the results show it's quite difficult to make the ovelap invisible. So for final the project it's ok because the ovelap was only on one edge with no print color on the backgound (just the numbers) and use a bit of tape to be more precise.
