A Simple Guide to Hiring Custom T-Shirt Printing Services

If you are looking for custom t-shirt printing services and don't know where to start, you are in the right place. This article gives you a clear and straightforward guide:

Why and What Do You Want to Print On Your T-Shirt?

This is the first step; it allows you to determine the services you require. You might either have commercial needs or personal ones.

Commercial needs mainly revolve around advertising and identity, where you print a particular company's logo and have your employees or other individuals wear them.

Personal needs may include printing a t-shirt with an image or message that inspires you. When you determine what you want to print on your t-shirt, you can move to the next step.

Looking for A Custom T-Shirt Printing Company

An internet search can reveal several custom t-shirt printing companies near you. Consider these factors when making your choice:

  • Your locality

It is always recommended to choose a company near you so that the entire printing service is made easy and cheaper. It also allows you to visit the custom t-shirt printing company to get first-hand feedback on the quality of work you may expect. If there is no company in your locality, you can choose the nearest, but ask for a sample first before fully committing.

  • Types of t-shirts you want (including design, colour and size)

You, of course, need plain t-shirts of a particular colour. Does the company you choose have the type of t-shirts you want (These can be slim fits, long sleeve, short sleeve, hooded, etc.)? Are they available in the different sizes you need?

  • Cost

Which company has the most competitive prices? What is the quality of the t-shirts and print work? Is there an offer on bulk printing? Is there free delivery? The answers to these questions help you determine whether you are getting a good deal.

The factors above show you that you need to check out the websites of different companies and also contact them.

What Might You Find On Custom T-Shirt Printing Company Websites?

There are two things you may come across:

  • A company that requires you to contact them first so that you can discuss your needs and send them images or texts to print.
  • A company that has an online system where you first choose the type of t-shirt you want, which then directs you to a page where you are expected to design the image or text and paste it on the t-shirt (you have the option to upload the image or text). The company will look at your design and get back to you to discuss and clarify your needs.
