I'm sure you'll get lots of different replies to this, but I have tried several and always end back up at TRIANGLE low bleed white.

I usually use QCM 145 white for 50/50's or sometimes QCM 170 white (which is made for 100% poly) if I'm really having trouble.
170 white is pretty thick though.

Glacier 159 might be bleed resistant enough. I don't know for sure I don't use it. But I can say that The 158 will still bleed some even though it claims to be low bleed. 145 and 170 I think are better. Call Chris at QCM he will go over your options for what you want to print on. They are very helpful.

thank you all for the replies . i have a sample of QCM158 from last year summer SGIA expo and i'll give a try . let's see how it works. i found that overcuring 50/50 fabrics are fatal and need very precise curing time.
thanx again to all
