Custom T-shirt printing continues to be incredibly popular. Sports teams and other groups love being able to choose the words, graphics, and even pictures that are included on their shirts. For churches and nonprofit organizations, custom tees are a great way to show appreciation to patrons, community supporters, and volunteers. If you have a special community event, you can present participants with a customized T-shirt as a way of commemorating the occasion, so everyone who assisted receives a wearable keepsake. With silk screen printing in Dallas, TX, you have many options when it comes to showing off your school pride or community spirit. Of course, finding the right custom T-shirt printing company is the first step.

Printing

Make a Checklist

First and foremost, you should identify what you need. Most companies are happy to assist with school logos or phrases and will be able to match a color scheme. However, not all printing businesses offer a wide array of materials and shirt styles or cuts. You also need to know your size ranges. Do they have someone in-house who can help with the graphics, or do you have to do that yourself? This could be a deciding factor. Knowing what you need before you contact the company will help you narrow down your choices faster.

Quantity and Quality

If you can, you should check out the company in person. The easiest way to gauge a quality shirt is by the feel. Getting your hands on samples of the merchandise is the quickest and simplest way to determine whether or not you’ll be satisfied with the quality. The quality of T-shirts varies quite a bit, but you don’t always need the top-of-the-line option. Shirts that are meant to be given out as souvenirs don’t need to last a lifetime. Be reasonable with your quality demands, and you should be quite pleased with the results.

Quantity is another matter altogether. There usually isn’t a lot of leeway when it comes to the number. Some printing businesses like to work in bulk. Others are quite pleased with smaller orders. Identity the minimum amount needed or a range before you contact the company. They can tell you whether or not the order is manageable.

Design and Graphics

A design or graphic is sometimes nonnegotiable. If it must be a mascot or company logo, you really don’t have any other choice. Fortunately, printing companies are generally able to accommodate you. Sometimes you may have been toying with the idea of an image or character, and you’d like assistance with the final product. There are printing businesses that absolutely love that sort of a challenge, and they’ll jump at the idea of assisting you. However, not all printing companies are so eager to aid with artistic endeavors. Be sure to let them know if you need help or if you can provide pictures for reference.

Shirts

Speed and Cost

You won’t receive 100 highly customized T-shirts within 24 hours. That’s unrealistic. Printing businesses already have orders in place, and rush jobs typically cost extra. With a little bit of leeway, you shouldn’t have any difficulty getting your order completed in a reasonable amount of time even if it is very specialized. Speak with the expert team at Rimshot TShirts if you have any questions or need assistance, and your silk screen shirt printing in Dallas, TX, should go off without a hitch.
