I have never seen a hard defined edge with pretreatment unless it's on the edge of the heat press platen or the edge of the sheet. If the the cover sheet was cutout then I understand, but who cuts a coversheet to mask the image. If it was a square or rectangle edge, I can understand. But again, in this situation, I mentioned the only logical explanation was it's a transfer and that was the end result.

I'm just sayin......

How is the beginning of the month last minute??
I wasn't aware of when he purchased from Spreadshirt. We were asked this week so i thought he just purchased the shirt recently. So if he purchase at the beginning of the month thats 3 weeks WOW.

One more day and FatKatz would have been able to save me. I’m still grateful and amazed by the community response.

Re: Not happy with Spreadshirt order, DTG process in general?

I called Spreadshirt and they said that in the holiday rush they have been substituting some DTG shirts with transfers. I, apparently, was the unlucky recipient of two of these shirts.

They are offering to reprint the shirts, but I think I’m going to ask for a refund, return the shirts, and print somewhere else. If they needed to change the process to meet orders, I wish they would have contacted me so I could have immediately canceled and printed elsewhere (I ordered the shirts at the beginning of the month!).

I'm going to look local here because shipping times just aren't working out. Again, thank you for everyone's feedback, advice, and offers to help! Much appreciated!

Unfortunately FatKat is a bit too far out of the UPS range to make it to the NJ address by Christmas.

WholesalePrints, would you still be up for it? UPS claims shipment from Boston tomorrow would arrive by end of day on the 24th.

Even if the image had a white background the RIP software should have the option to not print white. I don't see how this could be an image issue. You would have to select the settings for a Dark Print and tell the software to print an underbase. Might be possible if you are in a hurry and not watching what you are doing. A more plausible scenario is wrong type of pretreatment was used.
