KEY FEATURES

OPTIMIZED FOR PRINTABILITY

Unique print surface and super smart product details make this a printer’s dream! Personalize it your way with DTG, screen or transfer printing and get best results.

Picto Russell Minimal Shrinkage

LOW SHRINKAGE FABRIC (LSF)

The Authentic sweatshirts are super soft on the inside. A 100% cotton face yarn gives the best surface for decoration. The 3-thread-construction provides a low-shrinkage fabric and superior hand feel with volume.

EXCEPTIONAL SOFT TOUCH

The high-quality yarn makes our Authentics one of a kind. The fabric feels fuller, more luscious and comfortable than most other sweats.

Printability

A PERFECT FOUNDATION FOR YOUR FINISH

Combed, ring-spun cotton forms a smooth surface which makes for a particularly refined look, on any colour and when used for DTG, screen or transfer printing. High-quality 3-thread fabric construction with 100% cotton* face yarn guarantees excellent printing results.
*Face yarn for melange colours: 92% or 100% cotton depending on colourway
