I use a few different styles for Lemon Ice Tees:
50/50 Blends (Poly/Cotton) are a lightweight, super-soft poly-cotton mix. They have a trim fit, but don’t shrink as much as 100% cotton shirts. Collars are sturdy and don’t droop.
100% Ringspun Cotton tees are soft-hand, semi-lightweight cotton. They will shrink a little, being all cotton, so I’d size up if you’re on the fence. Collars are also sturdy and don’t droop.
Tri-Blends (Cotton/Rayon/Poly) are even lighter, also super-soft and always have an athletic or “heathered” appearance. Slim fit, but with a more relaxed collar and mid-section than the 50/50 blends. They won’t shrink much either, and I’ve personally owned both styles for over a decade.
I only print on high-quality shirt brands, depending on the color and availability: American Apparel, Los Angeles Apparel, Bella Canvas & Ei-Lo. After 14 years of printing, I’ve found these four are the most comfortable, reliable and durable tees.
If you’re in doubt, size up!
