50/50 vs. 100% Cotton

Have you ever wondered what difference it made to get your custom prints done on 50/50 blend or 100% cotton? At RockSports, we want you to be informed so you can make the right choice for your custom apparel. Through careful research, we have assembled the facts so you can find them right here in one place and take the guess work out of custom screen printing. Your first question might be, “What are my options?”.

The two major options are 100% cotton, and 50/50 polyester cotton blend. The benefits of 100% cotton are that it has a heavier, more luxurious feel, and the non-ringspun variety is a good base for four color printing. This is because of its density and tight surface, which is ideal for the fine dots and the continuous ink layer involved in the four color printing process. Ringspun 100% cotton has an even softer feel, however the fuzzy texture can show through an image and may yield a worn look or a dull image.

The advantage of a 50/50 polyester cotton blend is that it is a more durable material and will hold up better under more frequent wearing and washing. Although the shrinkage difference between 100% cotton and 50/50 blend has been greatly reduced, the 50/50 blend still has the advantage in this area and the 50/50 blend has a lighter feel that some may prefer.

At RockSports screen printing in Round Rock, we strive to provide you with all the information you need to make the right decision from concept to production and this is no exception.
