Garment Guidelines & Apparel Suggestions
- We only print on 100 % Cotton Garments of any color. Lighter colors normally print better.
- White garments can be made of blends, or 100% Polyester.
- No garment can be treated with a stain resistant / waterproofing chemical.
- Avoid products with more than a 1 X 1 rib fabric as fabric weave will affect print detail.
- DTG Printing uses water base inks, and may not produce neon like bri/bright prints
- AVOID colored/dark Gildan shirts. Through our experience, they don’t yield optimal print results.
- Dye lots may affect print quality in an order
- Yellow, red, and pink shirts may show slight staining of pre-treatment of shirts mandatory prior to printing
- Fleece must be 90% cotton, we recommend Hanes Print Pro Fleece or American Apparel.
- IF POOR QUALITY GARMENT IS SUPPLIED THAT IS LESS THAN 100% COTTON, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE PRINT QUALITY AND WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR FINISHED PRODUCT.
- SAFETY COLORS, CAMO., & GARMENT WASHED/DYED GARMENTS PRINT VERY POORLY.
