Default printing on Bella+Canvas DTG Fleece 70/30 blend

Relatively new to the DTG game, but I was wondering if anyone had experience getting a decent and vibrant print out of a Bella+Canvas DTG Fleece, a 70/30 blend -- it's more on the loose/stretchy side of hoodies. I've tried multiple tests and have yet to get a satisfactory looking print on this thing.
The "best" I've gotten out of it is doing two rounds of pretreat and pressing before putting it on the Brother to print, but still, the brightness just drops out of it as soon as I cure it with my heat press.

Any tips? Or is this a wash? Thanks.

equipment:
Brother GTX-422
Stahl's Hotronix heat press
SpeedTreater pretreat box
Adelco DigiCure conveyor dryer (not installed yet)

I ended up with a brighter print by going back to Image Armor pretreat and curing at a lower and longer temp exposure than the Brother tech originally instructed my shop. -- 330 for 45sec to cure pt, then hover for a minute, and two rounds of 330 at 45sec to cure print -- (thanks to a tip here: https://www.t-shirtforums.com/direct...ml#post4225626)

Still have a ways to go until I get this Brother pretreat figured out with hoodies.
