Which T-Shirt material is best for Photo printing?

 Which T-Shirt material is best for photo printing? I recommend white 100% polyester for Sublimation.


Depending what kind of T-Shirt am printing these are the options am using.

100% Cotton

Good for Photo printing with Hot Peel on white or light T-Shirts. The fabric is softness, breathable for all climates, absorbent, has a tendency to shrink and wrinkle


Good for both warm and cold climates, breathable, durable, non shrink as it has polyester in the fabric, non wrinkle. Mixer of Polyester 35% / cotton 65%

100% polyester

Good for Photo Printing with sublimation, screen printing. Amazing for cooler climates, less breathable than cotton and cotton/poly blend, non wrinkle, very durable, can withstand high wash temperatures, non shrink.


Best result is printing on a white T-Shirt that is 100% polyester.
What paper am using?
