Are you positive that the shirts were dtg printed? I ask this because the majority of dtg users will not print white ink on a white shirt. How much of a white box is the around the logo? Do you think it is pretreat fluid?

I have no clue how the garment was decorated so that is why I asked. How did Spreadshirt tell you they decorated it? Can you post a picture of the shirt with a closeup of the white box?

I can tell you that most dtg printers will print a white shirt and you will not see a box around the artwork. I would suggest trying another dtg company.
