Here is the question of all time. It is going to depend on the t-shirt. That is an easy way out of that question. All kidding aside, custom t shirts
do shrink. It is the amount that becomes the problem in answering. Thru my years of dealing with custom screen printing
on t shirts I have found that if you are very concerned about the shrinking you need to go with a 50/50 blend
(50% polyester and 50% cotton). They are the best when it comes to shrinking. Personally I wouldn’t wear a 50/50 custom tees
if I had a choice. I believe if you pick a good quality 100% cotton t-shirt
like the anvil 979
or the g2000
by guildan you will be fine. Most 100% cotton t-shirts
are preshrunk today and that means less shrinking after you wash it. They still say that it has the possibility of shrinking up to 8%. Shrinking is not a problem as long as you buy a good quality custom t shirt
. You can find many different brands at http://www.bendershirts.com/
where shrinking is at a minimum.
