The Only Way Out Is Through
These cranberry, tri-blend shirts are made from part cotton, polyester, and rayon to result in a ridiculously comfortable shirt. They’re unisex too, so they look great on everyone.
The design is printed using clear, tonal discharge ink. The discharge ink essentially re-dyes the shirt to create the image. With this method, you don’t have the familiar thickness of Plastisol prints where the ink sits on top of the shirt fabric. After an initial wash, you won’t even be able to feel the design at all. This results in nothing but pleasantly wearable softness.
All my favorite shirts are tagless, so I make sure the ones I produce are tagless as well. Instead of standard tags, the neck tag design is printed directly on the fabric using the same discharge ink.
