T-Shirts

There are a lot of manufacturers out there. After a lot of fairly intense research, I have chosen the following T-shirt models as a canvas for my designs.

The Womens’ T-Shirts are made by Bella Canvas. The model number is the „Favorite Tee“ BL6004. It fits like a well-loved favorite, featuring a slim feminine fit, crew neck, short sleeves and superior cotton.

Offered in a variety of solid and heather colors, it boasts the following benefits:

  • Looks good: High stitch density for smoother printing surface
  • Comfortable: slim feminine fit, longer body length
  • High quality: WRAP Certified Production.

The Mens’ T-Shirts are made by Anvil, a well-known brand owned by Gildan. The mode number is the „980 Adult Fashion basic Tee.”  

This T-shirt has been praised for its comfortable and athletic fit – ideal for surfing-toned bodies and is available in a fantastic set of colours. Some further key highlights are:

  • Keeps its shape: Preshrunk jersey knit
  • Looks good: High stitch density for smoother printing surface
  • High quality: Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Certified

So what about the printing?

Our manufacturer uses “Direct to Garment Printing (DTG)” an exciting printing method that uses highly modified inkjet printing technology with speciality water-based inkjet textile inks made by DuPont.

This technology enables the manufacturer to digitally change the design and enables the single print on demand model. It delivers exceptional print quality, being able to replicate photographs and full colour images on to any colour fabric.

…and delivery?

Our manufacturer is a small UK-based business who ship worldwide. Have a look at our delivery table for approximate delivery times. Once again, we have focused on the environment above speed. Our printer uses standard Royal Mail, leaving a lower carbon footprint. We trust this is in all our interests.

 

Thanks for your interest in the shirts and production process. We have tried to put a lot of thought into it and will continue to optimize as things develop!
