Shirt recommendations

Only my 2nd post, as I try to tackle making my own shirts next. I'd like to make shirts that will at least last the summer with the kiddos and was wondering if anybody has suggestions as to where to find decent quality shirts to use with the iron on transfers? I am planning on using Amy's transfers since they come so highly recommended. TIA.

If I am only buying a couple of shirts, I normally buy them from Joann's or Michael's. And sometimes you can gte lucky and find them on sale.

If I am buying quite a few, I buy from jiffyshirts.com. They carry lots of brands, colors and sizes. Makes it really easy to coordinate shirts for both adults and children. The ship super quickly and I have always been happy.

I prefer the Jerzee or the Gildan brand but only because that is what I have used in the past. I am sure they are all great! All major brands!

I used Jiffyshirts.com last year and they have held up really well. Plus they have sweatshirts, hoodies, etc as well.

Thanks everyone for the info, exactly what I was looking for. Off to check off all the options. I think I can get everybody in at least first day matching shirts, and if I put in all this hard work, they can't say no, right?
