Ordering custom t-shirts (for a team)

Post by Colorado13 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 11:29 am

Has anyone designed and ordered custom t-shirts online? There are many websites that print t-shirts; I don't know which one to use. I need to design ~10 team t-shirts (all one design) and welcome advice from anyone who has done this. Thanks!

local may be better... likely more control over what you get. For only ten shirts, the setup and shipping wouldn't make on-line any cheaper

I used Custom Ink a while ago.

Designed the shirts on their website and had no problems.

In my experience, t-shirts from printing companies online are very thin and cheaply made. I always go down to my local print shop which carries a wide variety of shirts from cheap to well made name brands. Pricing of course varies depending on amount and complexity of the design.

Check with any of your local baseball or soccer team organizations, or school/PTA. Every club I've ever seen orders tons of shirts, either for teams or grade school field trips or High School Spirit events, and they will know who in your community can do this fast and fair. Most can work with your design, but keep in mind silk screening color limitations (as in, fewer is better). And then, you can stock your paint rag box with all the old ones....
Salvia Clevelandii "Winifred Gilman" my favorite. YMMV; not a professional advisor.
