Anyone having issues with stretchability using Brother inks? Before washing they stretch great, just what you would expect. After the first wash they lose pretty much all stretchability and just crack when stretched. Very frustrating. I'm using Brother pretreat. Prints look great, they just don't stretch. I've tried varying the amount of pretreat with no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To what extent are you trying to stretch the fabric? Excessive stretching will always cause some type of cracking. Are you printing on 100% cotton? On 100% cotton shirts I have not had any problems with cracking, but I stay away from customers who have a requirement to wear the tight stuff that would typically cause stretching and lead to cracks. I also quit using Brother pretreat when the Firebird came out with their pre-treat a few years ago.
