We Tested. You Decide.

We had every color of our top-selling solids, heathers and triblends tested with four types of inks: Cotton White, 50/50, Polyester, and Discharge. Check out the results below!

100% Airlume Combed and Ring-Spun Cotton

We recommend cotton ink for all our 100% cotton tees. We never over-dye our fabrics, which makes them perform well with discharge ink. Typically, it is not recommended to discharge on tricky colors that are found in the green and purple families.

52% Airlume Combed and Ring-Spun Cotton, 48% Polyester

All our our Heather CVC colors work great with cotton ink, meaning even without a poly blocker there is virtually no dye migration. The only color we recommend using a 50/50 or poly ink is our solid black blend.

50% Polyester, 25% Airlume Combed and Ring-Spun Cotton, 25% Rayon

The majority of our triblends work well with a cotton ink. Our denim triblend is better with a 50/50 ink and there are a few tricky colors that we recommend using a grey barrier ink on the first pass then a 50/50 or poly ink on top. Discharge results on triblends vary because the poly and rayon don't take the discharge ink, however the soft-hand ink is a great compliment for the fabric.
