Customized T-Shirts

Whether it's to promote your company or cause or to give that special feeling of belonging to your family reunion, customized tee shirts (or "t-shirts") are a fun, popular, and surprisingly inexpensive way to get the job done.

There are hundreds of vendors locally and nationally. As you compare their offerings, here are some points to consider:
  • t-shirt - many companies offer shirts from major apparel manufacturers. The quality feel and longevity of your shirt depends on the shirt you choose. Heavier shirts ("Beefy T's" for example) are generally associated with a higher quality product, but they may not be suitable for hot summer wear. Also, be prepared to pay extra for the extra large sizes
  • printing method - silk screening and iron transfer are the common methods. Silk screening is usually better but requires more setup work
  • design - many vendors will accept a PC graphics file; others will take "camera ready" artwork; for a fee, some will take your rough idea and do the creative work for you
  • minimums, set-up costs, turnaround time, and shipping - compare each vendor's offering in these

    areas. Many companies require a minimum number of shirts while others charge a set-up fee instead.
