How to Print Custom T-Shirts Best Suited for Your Target Market: Part One

logo t-shirtsIf you’ve ever been shopping for custom t-shirts, you know all too well that there are an overwhelming number of options available to you. When you make a decision about which t-shirts to print on, you have a ton of variables to consider. Which brand name? What type of fabric or material? Should you opt for custom tag-free shirts? Of course, there are factors such as finding the right color shirt for your brand or organization, and in some instances, finding the right sizes. Everybody’s on a budget, so price is also an important factor. Finally, how do you choose which company to rely on to print your custom t-shirts? Put all these question marks together and it can feel like a daunting task choosing the right t-shirts.

Consider this. There are really three common options when it comes to printing on custom t-shirts. You can choose 100% cotton t-shirts, 50/50 blend t-shirts (made of 50% cotton and 50% polyester), and performance t-shirts (100% polyester).  There are advantages to each type of tee, and perhaps some disadvantages. It all depends on what you’re looking for. When making your choice, it’s really important to consider your target market and how they will wear your printed t-shirts.

We’re going to simplify the decision making process for you right here. Check out our breakdown of some of our most popular custom t-shirts. We’re organizing them here by fabric/material. I’m including our “as low as price” (which applies to high quantity orders) as a means of price comparison. Today, we’ll share some of our best-selling, 100% cotton t-shirts.


100% Cotton T-Shirts

T-shirts made from 100% cotton have a high quality, heavy feel to them. The brands utilize “pre-shrunk cotton” in the manufacturing process of 100% cotton tees, so consumers don’t have to worry about the shirts getting too tight after a round or two through the dryer. Manufacturers also identify each t-shirt’s weight. The weight of the t-shirt means that if given one yard of the material used to make the t-shirt, it would weigh the identified number of ounces. In other words, a t-shirt identified as having a weight of 6.1 ounces is going to have a thicker feel than a t-shirt labeled as 5.6 ounces. If you’re giving away your promotional t-shirts at a hot and humid summer event, you’ll probably want to choose a lighter weight 100% cotton t-shirt, a 50/50 blend t-shirt, or even a performance t-shirt. On the other hand, if you want your shirts to deliver some warmth, a heavy weight, 100% cotton t-shirt is a great choice.
