Materials Best Suited for Print-on-Demand T-Shirts
Gooten’s Custom T-Shirt selection is a melting pot of exquisitely crafted fabrics, ensuring durability and print quality.
Our tees are 100% cotton fabrics, polycotton blends, or tri-blends (cotton/polyester/rayon).
Some of our print-on-demand apparel catalog’s most common garment compositions include ringspun cotton, airlume combed cotton, and 50/50 or 90/10 polycotton fabrics.
Open-end cotton is the product of a spinning technique that twists the yarn by rotating short fibers. Compared to other methods, such as combing and ring spinning, open-end spinning costs less, making the overall process more cost-effective, and the production speed is higher. The process results in bulky, fuzzy fabric.
“Ringspun” is a specialized manufacturing technique that elevates the caliber of cotton. The process consists of continuous yarn spinning, twisting, and thinning, yielding extended, velvety threads that produce durable, ultra-soft fabric with increased breathability compared to conventional cotton. The cotton’s texture is smoother and devoid of impurities, which is the goal of the process.
A step further is airlume cotton. The method considers intensive combing before cotton is spun into yarn. The aim is, again, to eliminate impurities from the raw material. Although this process incurs some material loss and extended duration, it uplifts cotton’s value and the garment’s premium properties.

Open-End vs. Ringspun Cotton
Although both open-end and ringspun cotton have benefits, the latter offers more optimal results for DTG printing, as its texture is smoother, ensuring the end print will be more crisp and of higher quality. The ringspun cotton fabric is also softer to the touch, elevating the premium properties of the T-shirt.
A tri-blend fabric comprises cotton, polyester, and rayon. Initially developed as a silk substitute, rayon is soft and has moisture-absorbent qualities, ideal for athletic or athleisure wear. The fabric is light and suitable for vintage-style prints. When printed with water-based ink, tri-blends show natural heathered properties due to the selective removal of cotton color.
While print results might be less vibrant than other more common fabrics, tri-blends offer a naturally heathered, vintage look. The print results on tri-blend T-shirts might appear less vibrant than prints on 100% cotton or cotton/polyester blends, but neither is superior; they’re merely distinct.
Tri-blend T-shirts exhibit minimal shrinkage compared to 100% cotton shirts, with only a slight size reduction that shouldn’t significantly impact the fit over time.
