Default Re: Solids are KILLING ME!!

the issue is with the white underbase, and if you don't get a good underbase, your color output will suffer; including the flaking you are getting on the red area. in my opinion, your pictures pose some of the trickiest trouble shooting out there. i've had fibrillation with my non-pretreated Keya shirts, but not with the ones that i pretreat and print with white ink.

i also like Canvas and Next Level. my last job with Canvas was kind of like the Gildan issue. i'd say over half pretreated and printed fantastic, and then the others did kind of what Gildan does where the pretreat just soaked in. so far the Next Level tri-blends have printed great, which tells me that their knit is really tight. they are still cheaper than American Apparel, so you might try some of their ringspun options.
