There are vastly different price ranges on custom t-shirts no matter where you shop, and Show Your Logo is no exception. If you click on through to the Show Your Logo custom t-shirt page, you’ll see that our prices range from as low as $2.27 to a high of $12.50 for a short-sleeve, adult sized t-shirt. Why is that? Isn’t a t-shirt just a t-shirt? Are you paying for a brand name?
Not necessarily…but occasionally. The range of prices generally has everything to do with the materials used and the process involved in manufacturing the t-shirt. Here are just a few of our many custom t-shirts to help illustrate.
This Fruit of the Loom t-shirt in a 50% cotton/50% polyester blend is a best seller. The price is irresistible. The materials used in the manufacturing of the shirt make it budget-friendly. These shirts don’t feel as heavy as a 100% cotton t-shirt, but their quality and durability is up to snuff. (As low as price: $2.27)
These 6.1 oz, heavyweight, 100% cotton t-shirt is a top-seller with good reason. An as low of price of $2.44 coupled with an extensive range of sizes and color options makes it a customer favorite.
These 4.5 oz, 100% cotton tees are yours for as low as $2.87. Note that they’re not quite as heavy as other t-shirts available for customization.
These 6.1 oz t-shirts are made with 100% cotton. They’re heavyweight, all right, just like Gildan Ultra Cotton t-shirts. Why the as low as price of $3.72? Hanes does some heavy marketing of these shirts to retailers. You’re paying Michael Jordan. That’s cool with us, especially if you like the Hanes brand name and feel like M.J. needs some more cash.
With as low as price of $3.33, these 4.5 oz, 100% cotton t-shirts have been dubbed “fashion” t-shirts because they are designed with a fitted shape. Note that these shirts, made with the same cotton weight as the Gildan’s above, are slightly more expensive. (Fashion’s going to cost you, but you’re worth it.) These fashion-forward t-shirts are a great investment when a fitted cut matters to your target market.
These 5.0 oz, 100% organic cotton t-shirts are just like the organic produce at the grocery store. They cost more. However, if choosing an organic product is important for your brand, these Anvil t-shirts are an excellent choice with an as low as price of $5.33.
These 6.1 oz, 100% cotton t-shirts have the same heavy-duty feel as the 6.1 oz Hanes Beefy T-shirts. However, these shirts have gone through the pigment dyeing process, giving the t-shirts a broken-in look. It’s kind of like paying extra for distressed jeans. As low as price? $6.06.
These 100% polyester t-shirts are moisture wicking and boast a contemporary fit. Moisture wicking technology in a t-shirt isn’t particularly cheap, but it’s definitely an appreciated feature to have built into your t-shirt on a sweaty kind of day. As low as price? $6.99.
