Hi! May I ask what kind of brand you using for white shirts?

I have Epson F2100 and have been playing with setting one/double strokes, with/without pretritment, density,contrast etc.... colors are bright BUT after just first washing you can see some white dots and white fuzziness coming on top of designs..... Not sure what else I can do or try?!

I use only white shirts for fight now and most of my design are for kids (toddler,youth sizes) but I need to have all sizes from baby to regular Adults.

We recommend Cotton Heritage style 1082 t-shirts. It's what we use for all sample prints that we send out and print at trade shows. Get from:
