If you are using a DTG it needs to be on a 100% cotton shirt. I have read it might print fine but after a wash or so, the polyester part will fade fast. Sorry, I am of no help. But if you were wondering why it wasn't working, that is probably why. good luck!

We have printed on camo shirts the are 100% cotton on our Anajet, we treated the shirt like it was a black shirt (pretreat) and give it a white layer. Came out great.

Because of the fabric content of camouflage shirts they are more difficult to print on digital garment printers. You should print them as dark shirts - pretreat them, print a white underbase, and then print your color print on top.

As said above, you should treat it like a black shirts, and underlay the artwork with white, and pretreat. However, some camo apparel are treated with scent blocker, and other types of antibacterial garment treatments. These may not interact well with the pretreatment, and inks for your DTG printer.
Hope this helps!
