About Us

Our fully-immersive pretreatment process is a game-changer, designed to streamline your production workflow, enabling you to focus on growing your business, without the time-consuming guesswork of spray and transfer-film processes.

Pretreating America's Favorite Brands

At CheaterTee, we believe that a great print starts with a great shirt. That's why we exclusively pretreat shirts from America's most popular brands, such as Gildan, Bella + Canvas and Next Level. Our fully immersive pretreatment process sets us apart, helping you achieve unparalleled vibrancy on even the most challenging colors.

Our Process

CheaterTee pretreated garments are processed exclusively using FIREBIRD Industrial Processing [FIP] systems. The pretreatment used is based on FIREBIRD FBX formulations, with specific enhancements made to enable usage in washer/extractor systems.
