If possible, try using more pressure. My heat press is kind of on the fritz right now so it hasn't really been pressing evenly and I had some that would definately spread out quite a bit when stretched (Right now I'm using a large sweatshirt on the bottom of the press to give me more thickness so it gets more pressure, seems to be working well). However, I'm wearing one i did right now and it barely spreads out or cracks at all when stretched. You might also try doing them a little longer (20 seconds instead of 15.)

Finally, if it ends up not working out for you, there is still the option of plastisol transfers that you can apply with the heat press for that screen printed look and feel. I'm still experimenting with the ones I just got... they seem quite nice but I still need to perfect the transfer and wash test them.
