Triblend Vs. 100% Cotton

We offer a large variety of garments, ranging from 100% cotton to Triblend to Poly blends.  

So which is the best for printing? 

The print outcome will vary depending on the fabric chosen for your apparel. If you're reading this, you already know that we offer 100% cotton blends, poly blends (50% cotton/50% polyester), and tri-blends (50% polyester/25% cotton/25% rayon or 50% polyester/37% ring-spun combed cotton/13% rayon).

The DTG printing process is best suited for garments that are 100% cotton. If you’re looking for the most opaque result we would recommend 100% cotton. 

Over the years, the printing industry has seen the demand for poly and tri-blend garments grow to the point that we knew we had to offer them in addition to 100% cotton.  Our team has tested DTG with countless poly and we're confident in our ability to produce a high quality print. 

Poly and tri-blends will have a faded/vintage outcome with DTG printing due to their looser weave and combination of fabrics. This means that the fabric of the garment will often show through the ink.
