Finally A Way To Find The Best Shirt For DTG Printing!
We’ve created this advanced database to help you find the absolute best shirts to print when using FIREBIRD Inks and Pretreatments. Each shirt is tested in five areas: White Vibrancy, CMYK Vibrancy, Discoloration, Hand Feel and Washability.  5 stars being the best and 0 stars being the worst. We went a step further by giving the FIREBIRD seal of approval to the shirts that work best! Click the brand logo below or visit the gallery and view our notes, pretreatment amounts and curing time with each color.
