There are many Garment Types and Styles available on our Instant Quote Generator, so how do you know which one is right for your band? Here are a few things to consider when ordering a custom band t-shirt...
What is your budget?
- Printing on standard 100% Cotton T-shirts is typically less expensive than printing on fashion fit or other specialty t-shirt styles. Consider how much money you have to spend, and also how much you're comfortable selling the shirts to your fans for. Thanks to it's low price point and extensive color selection, the most popular, "standard" band shirt is the Gildan 5000 100% Cotton T-shirt.
Are you looking for standard shirts or a specific style?
- Consider the style you want your custom band t-shirt to be. Do you want a loosely fitted standard shirt? A v-neck? Tank top? A shirt with a more fitted style to it? If you're looking for a Fashion Fit shirt, we highly recommend the Canvas 3001C shirt. With a feel comparable to American Apparel, this soft and fitted shirt will most likely still fit within your budget.
Do you want men's shirts or women's shirts?
- While unisex or men's shirts are always a safe bet for a custom band t-shirt, many bands do opt to print shirts specifically for ladies. American Apparel, known for their high quality garments and popular branding, is available in both men's AND women's shirts. Some alternatives to American Apparel include the soft, fashion fit Bella 6000 t-shirt, the Anvil 815 tank top, and the Bella 1011 spaghetti strap shirt. V-necks are also available in women's cut, including the ultra affordable Tultex 0214TC.
All fans are different, so to get a feel for which styles and sizes would sell best, ask around your merch table for some input before placing your next t-shirt order!
