What shirts can I print on?

Posted on 29 October 2008 by Shaun

Ok so you have a basic idea of the printing methods and hopefully you have some inspiration and vision for your line…so now what do you do?
Before you really get into it you should be familiar with what resources and garments you have available to print on.  Here is a list of some blank apparel manufactures available for print. I am sure I missed some but these are some well known and not as popular brands you can look at.

Follow us on twitter for more articles and resources about the clothing industry!

Here are my personal favorites along with the quality…

American Apparel         Most popular among indie clothing brands, I think its a little over rated
Alternative                   Pricey but great styles and quality
Tultex                          Best value for the money
Alstyle                         Good basic shirt to start with
Eternal                         Very high quality, high end type shirts

The ones marked with asterisks are some of the more used ones in the industry.
