Tips & FAQs
To get the best possible print results on cotton and cotton-blend shirts, we recommend you heat-press the shirts right before printing them, as follows:
- Temperature: Max. 330F
- Pressure: 80+PSI
- Time: 20 seconds
Then, once printed, simply cure the ink according to your ink manufacturer's specifications.
We recommend you cure the printed shirt based on your ink manufacturer's specifications.

Depending on your order, we will pretreat our 100% Cotton and Cotton-Blend garments as follows:
- Colored garments are pretreated using a variant of CheaterTreat.

Yes, all garments we carry are fully pretreated, inside and out. Simply heat press them and they are DTG ready!
Since we pretreat the entire garment using a fully-immersive process, you may notice a slight increase in weight, in comparison to an identical style shirt that is not pretreated. We've found in our product testing, that a close to original garment feeling can be restored, when the fully pretreated shirt is washed before wearing, by the end-user.
