2 Tips for Ordering Custom American Apparel 50/25/25 T-Shirts Online

August 10, 2012

American Apparel has set the standard for t-shirts and when you are ordering your next Custom American Apparel 50/25/25 t-shirts or any other custom American Apparel t-shirts you might have a few questions, so here are 2 of the most common questions that we get asked:

1. Q. How does the custom American Apparel 50/25/25 t-shirt fit and what is the fabric like? 
    A.  When American Apparel was thinking about how they could make the best t-shirt on the market, they were definitely thinking of what you'd want.  With a more tailored fit than the standard baggy t-shirt that we all grew up with, this shirt has revolutionized how t-shirts should fit.  The sides have been brought in a little more and the sleeves are a bit higher and less baggy than your average t-shirt, but the fabric is where this shirt really sets itself apart.  Made of 50% Polyester, 25% Cotton and 25% Rayon, the custom American Apparel Tri-Blend is the softest shirt that you can order.  We've said it before and we'll say it again... "If heaven had a t-shirt, this would be it!"

2. Q. What do you recommend for ink (standard or vintage) on this t-shirt?
    A.   This is such a lightweight t-shirt that unless you really need your artwork to "pop" off of the garment, we suggest using our vintage ink process which is a thinner, watered down ink that is applied with a different mesh than our standard ink process.  There is no extra charge for this, but it will definitely allow the shirt to not feel weighed down while allowing some of the natural shirt color to come through the lighter coat of ink.  We've mastered this process so that all you have to do is work with your Coed Monkey Order Rep to figure out which t-shirt and ink color work best... An Athletic Heather t-shirt with the vintage white is always cool, but a vintage navy ink would also be cool... 

Bottomline, the custom American Apparel 50/25/25 t-shirt will change your standards for t-shirts, so check it out on your next t-shirt order and although it's a few bucks more than the bottom-of-the-line t-shirt, you'll instantly be able to tell the difference!
