I am playing around with printing my images on T-shirts. Material and printer and transfer type all have to be considered. These are my favorite T-shirts – they are really stretchy (viscose & elastane) and cut with a swing. My ink-jet printer does an excellent job with the resolution and color. The transfers iron on well – as long as I am patient and don’t rush it. After washing, there is a bit of cracking which is okay for a sort of vintage look. T-shirts with less stretch – say more cotton or linen, don’t seem to have the same problem. I am going to keep playing around to see if different transfers do a better job. Then there is the issue of color prints on colored material.
