How to Work with a T-Shirt Company

One of the ways to make sure you get what you want is to focus closely on the design process. Better companies will present you with several options allowing you to make your selection, with modifications if needed. Seeing multiple options helps you target the right design for your needs. 

Make sure that the designer and the printer are on the same page. The design is only as good as the printer’s or embroiderer’s ability to execute it. The printer is going to need high-resolution artwork (300 dpi or greater), or either Illustrator or eps vector files. The GetBold team is fully integrated and have worked together on thousands of T-shirt and apparel projects.

What to Look for When Choosing a custom printing company

A company’s reputation is a reflection of its past performance. Research that performance. Read the reviews. Good information helps you select the right T-shirt printing partner with the capabilities your project needs. When you know what you want, it is easier to find a company that can deliver it. 

Here are some considerations to make sure you find a company that can deliver on your requirements: 

  • Make sure that the company has a wide array of apparel options. Long sleeves, short sleeves, women’s, men’s, youth, tanks, and sizes from S to XXL.
  • You may want to find out if their offering goes beyond t-shirts to hats, hoodies, jackets, sweatshirts, or letterman’s jackets.
  • What Range of production capabilities do they have? Can they handle both printing and embroidery, or applique? Do they only print on one side, or can they print on both sides? 
  • What is their history of meeting deadlines? What is a typical turn-around time? Can they turn the job in a reasonable time? Do they have the capability to meet a tough deadline? What are the rush charges? 
  • What quantity will you be needing? What is your goal? Do you need a few shirts or a promo giveaway for a tradeshow? Some companies only do bulk orders.
  • Price/Cost: Discuss the price up-front. Price still affects quality, both in the quality of the garment or the quality of the design. A good “rule-of-thumb” is to not go with the lowest quote. The level of Quantity is typically a “get what you pay for” decision.
