wrinkle troubles

well over all I like printing on cloth but there are a few things…. when there is a lot of ink on the surface of the linocut the cloth wrinkles and stretchs. See figure 1. It took more prints than I thought it would to get 4 good ones. some times as many as 6 or seven before it would print without wrinkling the cloth. I tried to feed it in several different ways or alter the presure of the printing press. There didn’t seem to be any set way that it would work for sure, but by just printing I would finally get ones that didn’t wrinkle or stretch the cloth.
