Should I Screen Print 50/50 or 100% Cotton

When it comes to custom screenprinting on t-shirts it doesn't really matter which you use. With 50/50 t-shirts you get a couple of nice benefits. The main advantage of 50/50 tee shirts is that there is absolutely no shrinkage. Secondly, they do not wrinkle like the 100% cotton shirts. However, the 100% cotton t-shirts have their benefits as well. They are thicker and softer shirts, but don't be confused. Be sure to look at the weight of your tee shirt before ordering your 100% cotton shirts because they are available in two different weights. The first is lighter than the 50/50 which would be 5.5oz and the heavier 100% cotton is the 6.1oz. For example Hanes makes a 5280 100% cotton shirt that weighs 5.5oz and the 5180 Beefy T which is 6.1oz.

My main advice when it comes to choosing my custom t shirts is ... if you are using white tees go with the 100% cotton 6.1oz because they are thicker, but on the color shirts just decide which advantages suit you.
