Guide to Custom T-Shirts


Looking for the perfect custom-printed shirt for your team, retail business or event can feel overwhelming. We get it!

When you first embark on the challenge of sourcing custom t-shirts, there are so many variables to consider.

Our Guide to Custom T-Shirts can help!

How is the fit? How is the sizing? Does is run small or large? Is it pre-shrunk? What colors are the most popular? What about the quality? Is the art-work set-up properly? Is this the best price available?


Sourcing for custom printed apparel can be tricky!

If the fit, color, quality, weight or artwork isn’t quite right, your customers simply will not wear your apparel as a result  but don’t fret, we’ve got guides for that Screen Printing Guide and Shirt Fabrics . You really don’t need a PhD in t-shirt buying just to get your project off the ground.

When purchasing shirts for your team or retail business, starting with simple demographic data will help you narrow your search. Who are you serving? What is most important to them, value or quality? Do they prefer a classic style or something more young and edgy? Are they minimalists and loathe flashy logos or are they maximalists that prefer something artsy?



A mature demographic may prefer a more relaxed, heavier weight fit while a millennial might prefer a poly-cotton blend with a vintage feel.

Color preferences vary based on location, demographics, industry and your brand’s color palette. However, it is helpful to consider what emotions you are trying to convey by using color psychology. For example, if you are buying t-shirts for a smoothie business, a sorbet pink, lemon yellow or a zesty green color would convey a sense of “freshness”.
