Picking The Right Tshirt For Custom Printing

We are back with another quick but informative post to help you with picking the right tshirt for custom printing t-shirt orders. In today’s post we will be discussing some of the different types of blank t-shirt options for you to chose from.  Many times organizers don’t know, or don’t care about picking the right tshirt for custom printing so they  choose what they know, a super basic plain cotton t-shirt. Yes, those are usually the cheapest option, but in some cases for a couple more dollars per shirt you can have a lot more options.  Also while they maybe suitable for the event, we want to provide you with some option that will get people wearing your custom screen printed shirt even after your event is over.  If you are investing in custom screen printed t-shirts to get your event, logo or artwork out there, why not pick a blank tee that will get worn over and over again!  It’s definitely more bang for the buck.


Picking the right t-shirt for fundraisers, work shirts and promos

T-shirts are great for fundraisers! Not only can you get your message out there with people wearing your shirts, but its also an inexpensive way to do so.  Cookies are great, but once they are gone, they are gone….or maybe on your hips 🙂  Don’t let your t-shirts be a one and done!  Picking a basic, quality t-shirt will help ensure that your t-shirt will get worn by your buyers while running daily errands and not used for rags because they were cheap and uncomfortable.

We love using a basic 50% cotton and 50% polyester for our basic tees. Some companies offer these as an upgrade, but not us. This is our standard. If we would’t wear it, we won’t sell it.  It has the heavy feel like cotton, with a bit of stretch-ability from the polyester.  These tees are great for screen printing and heat transfers. Don’t be afraid to get something beyond the basic one color tee as well.  All options below are 50/50.  Don’t be afraid to ask about your options, and if your budget allows, go for it!

School Pride and Spirit Wear Custom T-shirts

When getting students into spirit wear for the school year you have to have options that are fashionable.  Students now a days want something they can wear out to games, the movies and around in social atmospheres around  their friends.   Remember shirts will also be bought by family, and parents of student athletes so you know they need to look good and stand out!  Speak with your printer about what types of blank apparel are trending, and how you can apply this to your situation.
