What makes a good T-shirt

the deal

On Our T-shirts

and why it even matters... 

While we stock from a range of suppliers we have been in the game long enough to know what to use for the right customer and since we stock a range of tees from different suppliers you may well wonder what the real difference is (other than Price) It really depends what the end use for your garment is? Is it a work tee that will be worn hard, all day, everyday or is it band merch? The weight or GSM (grams per square meter) may also be a factor. Do you prefer a heavier weight tee for winter and a lighter one for summer? Other factors may include the fit or cut of the tee, some prefer a slimmer cut with a slightly longer tee maybe for a gym or fitness.

We realise that some customers still like to source their own cheaper tees, we get it! But keep in mind that they are quite often cheap for a reason. We have seen warping and shrinkage occur after we have  started printing on a dual layer print due to inferior cotton.

We prefer to use the garments from our suppliers as they will give a consistently good product, our favourite suppliers are Gildan and ASColour
