What To Look For When Buying A Custom T-shirt
You will hardly get good-quality custom t-shirts from a mass retailer. This is because the ones that are popular are usually made to order. There are different ways of ordering a custom t-shirt and they include a text or an image that customers want on the front of their tee, a particular motif or a styling pattern that an artist wants to be printed on the tee etc. Custom tees can be wonderful gifting ideas because while they are inexpensive, they give the look and feel of a personalized and thoughtful gift.
What are the factors that you should consider while buying a custom tee? Find below.
Source of purchase
Custom tees can be great options for corporate gifting. In this case, you will require buying large numbers of tees and that could blow your budget if the source of purchase is a normal retailer. However, you could save a lot of money by opting to buy in bulk.
While buying in bulk will save you money, it will compromise a good deal on the quality so if you want to ensure that you are buying a unique product; try purchasing from a designer outlet or a store that sells personalized stuff. If you are buying for a team of players, you could also get their names printed on the back of the tees.
Choice of fabric
This is yet another important factor while buying a custom t-shirt. If you want the customized prints or details to stay as they are, opt for polyester instead of cotton. Cotton tends to shrink after the first wash and the prints might look crinkled or damaged.
My wife got me a great t-shirt that was a beautiful cobalt blue and was custom made as per my liking. However, it was made of cotton and shrunk a good deal after the first wash and did not fit me well later.
