What You Should Know About Printing Custom T-Shirts

Whether you're printing custom t-shirts for an event, party or team, being prepared means you'll get it done right the first time around. Here are a few pointers so you'll have perfectly printed custom t-shirts just the way you expected them.

  • Plan your timeline accordingly. Printing out t-shirts takes time and you can wait a few weeks or more. Leave yourself enough room so you won't have to pay more for a rush order.
  • Before you head out to the printers with your design, think about what t-shirts you'll be printing on. Some printing shops sell their own tees for printing, but it might be worth your while to shop around for the shirts you want at a better deal.
  • Check with the printers to find out what colors are standard and which ones need to be mixed. Colors that aren't stock colors can cost you more.
  • Always get a quote for your order so you know what you're paying for, how much and when you can expect to get your order.
  • Always inspect the proof before you print multiple custom t-shirts. You may catch an error that either you or the printer has made.
