T-shirt manufacturers and designers have refined the basic tee for a number of fashion and specialized styles for men and women - even kids, toddler and baby tees. We can screen print, embroider, or digitally print any cotton tee on the market.
Cotton/Poly Blends are sometimes preferable, as they tend to wrinkle and shrink less than cotton tees. They are comparable in price and also offered in a number of styles, colors and fabric weights. There are some decoration processes that don’t work well when polyester is added to the blend. Contacts us to learn more about some of the drawbacks.
100% Polyester t-shirts are not the same polyester you may remember from the fashion of the 1970’s. The polyester of today is specialized for moisture wicking properties and wrinkle resistance. Hydrophilic polyester garments are high performance apparel for sports and fast paced occupations such as a restaurant wait staff. They feel great when worn and are pretty snazzy for leisurewear as well.
