What are the best quality brands of T-shirts for silk screening???”

The important thing about choosing T-shirts for silk screening or other type of printing are the weight and mesh quality, being in europe I would say that they shouldn’t be less than 160 grams which corresponds to 5.5 oz, less than that weigh they look a bit translucent, other aspect to take note is the mesh quality, which should be uniform and without imperfections such as small spots, blobs, flock or blotch, that may show as a bump. This can be tested by holding the front or back part of the T-shirt against a strong light source, a lamp or the sun, (moving the palm of your hand inside the shirt against the light also helps), and that should show the uniformity of the textile and also if it isn’t too thin (the weight), of course the exact weight should be given by the manufacturer, and after a while one would be able to differ the weights by experience acquired by handling different kinds of T-shirts. And of course we are talking about 100% cotton white T-shirts. Coloured T-shirts app

I like Gildan as well as many other brands which I use for custom t-shirts screen printing. I think it all personal, you should check different brands and see which work better for you, it is not that easy 🙂
