Choosing the Right T Shirt Printing Company

How do you transform a simple T-shirt into something unique? The answer is simple – you can personalise it with a design of your own. You can print a T shirt at home for this purpose. What would you do if you have to print a number of tees? The easiest way to do this is to get help from a T-shirt printing company.

Which questions do you need to ask before you order the printing of the tees? When you get in touch with a company, make sure you ask the right questions. The answers would guide you to make the right selection.

How does the company ensure the quality of the tees? A design would only look good on a tee if the raw material is of good quality. Check the types and brands of the T shirts that the company uses to make personalised items. If the printing company uses high quality fabrics, the finished product would have the look and feel you want.

Does the customer supply the design? If you have a special image or a funny quote that you want to print on the T-shirt, it is important that you choose a printing company that accepts artwork from customers. If you need the T-shirts for the employees, it is also a good idea to print the name or logo of your business on them.

Is assistance with the artwork available? At times, it may be difficult for you to come up with your own artwork for the tees. At such times, you need a little help with the design. Many T shirt printing companies offer an extensive library of designs that you can print on the tees. You may also get their graphic artists to create a unique design for the tees.

Do they cater to all order volumes? Some printing companies have limits on minimum and maximum orders. Others offer T-shirt and hoodie printing for all order volumes. It is best to ask the company about these limits in advance. This would ensure that they cater to the order volume that you have.

How much cost does it involve? The prices for printing T shirts vary from one company to another. You need to ask for a price quote before you order the tees. Also, make sure you are aware of what the quote includes. You may have to pay more than what you think initially if the company later adds the shipping and delivery charges to the cost.

What is the turnaround time? If there is no time constraint, you can choose a company that takes weeks to complete the order. However, if you need the finished products within a specific period, it is important to choose a company that can meet the deadline. Ask about the turnaround time for your order before you place it to ensure this.

Do they offer the method of printing that you need? Different printing methods are suitable for different orders. For example, if you need a simple design on 500 tees, screen printing is the most appropriate method to do it. Enquire about the type of printing method that the printing company specialises in before you order the T shirts.

How is shipping and delivery handled? Make sure the company offers shipping and delivery of the finished products. It would be even better if the shipping and delivery are available for free. However, do not choose a company just because it offers this free of cost. Focus on the quality of the tees instead.

The answers to the questions would help you understand whether the T shirt printing company is suitable for you. If it seems appropriate, you can go ahead and order the tees for personal or professional use.
