Order One Custom T-Shirt Online- No Minimum Custom T-Shirts

"I only need one or two custom t-shirts... is that something you can help me with?"

While we specialize in large quantity orders of Soft, Custom Screen Printed T-Shirts, we still get a lot of people asking if we can print on only one or two pieces.  While we want to help each and every person that calls/contacts us, we realize that our screen printing method is not very cost-effective for quantities below 25 pieces.  

The best printing method for one or two pieces is Direct-to-Garment Printing (Digital Screen Printing), which is basically a photo-copied type of printing that is great for short-run quantities.  While the print is still high quality, depending on the fabric and ink color, the logo may not be as vibrant as with standard screen printed apparel... and this is not something we offer, but...  

Saying that, we still want to be able to help you get what you want... so while we don't have a preferred printer to send you to, here are 4 quick things to consider as you look for the right printer to help you with one or two custom printed t-shirts:

4 Steps to Ordering One or Two T-Shirts
1- Save your image in the right format: (as either an AI, PSD, JPG, PNG or EPS) Save it to the size that you will want it printed.  If you are creating the image from scratch, begin by making the canvas size in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop to the size that you will want the entire image printed.

2- Google to find a Printer:  Search for "custom digital printing" or "custom digital printing in _______ (your city & state)," "custom t-shirt digital printing" or "custom t-shirt digital printing in _______ (your city & state),"

3- Do the right research and determine which company is right for you... one that can offer you both the best price, quality and and customer care... along with confirming that you can get your custom, digitally printed t-shirt on-time (since this type of order typically requires a faster turnaround time)

4- Order one or two digitally screen printed t-shirts, and please keep us in mind for future orders if you need more than 25 t-shirts so we can screen print your t-shirts for a higher quality, longer lasting print.

Although we might not be able to print for you on this one or two piece order, please let us know if we can help you on larger orders in the future!

Save Big Money On Large Custom T-Shirt Orders by Following this Tip
"We love helping our customers save $$$ on custom t-shirt orders..." ~ Bill Svoboda, Founder

No matter the size of order, we know that price is always something that's a big part of the decision process, when someone is thinking through where to order custom printed t-shirts. Fortunately, ever since we started 13+ years ago, we have been able to offer very competitive prices that compliment our high-level of customer care, but we are still always looking for ways to help our customer save money on their orders.

Since we get asked so frequently for ways to save money on large orders, our founder Bill decided to hop in front of the camera to outline one BIG money saving technique that some of our largest clients use.  And while this video may best apply to someone that is ordering hundreds or thousands of t-shirts per year, another simple way to cut costs is to relook at how many ink colors or logos you are having us print on your t-shirts... along with possibly choosing a different brand.


Our Coed Monkey Brand Reps are always here to help, so please let us know if you had any questions, because we wanna make sure you look amazing in soft, custom printed t-shirts (that fit your budget!)

[VIDEO] What does American Apparel's Bankruptcy & Acquisition by Gildan mean?

March 06, 2017

"American Apparel's 50/25/25 was the first t-shirt I fell in love with." 
~ Bill Svoboda, Founder

Since American Apparel's last round of bankruptcy, and acquisition by Gildan, America has been wondering what the future of American Apparel will be... and what all of this means for Screen Printing on American Apparel t-shirts. 

Some of the most common questions range from "Will I still be able to get Custom Printed American Apparel T-Shirts," to "Since Gildan aquired them, does that mean the quality is going to go down?" and to even, "Will American Apparel still be made in America."

So, since we hear a lot of things that the public may not hear, our founder Bill Svoboda wanted to make a short video, to update everyone on what we know... and what that might mean you, as you are thinking of having us print on American Apparel t-shirts:


Here at Coed Monkey, we wanna be more than a printer, but a partner... helping you look amazing in custom screen printed t-shirts!  So if you are looking for alternatives to American Apparel, here is one of our favorite options to consider (still super-soft & still tailored but with an even more cost-effective price), our Custom Canvas 50/2525 T-Shirt:

Our Custom Canvas 50/25/25 T-Shirt is a great alternative to American Apparel right now

Please let us know if you had any questions, or if you are looking to order one of our Coed Monkey Sample Packs to help you choose the right blank t-shirt brand for your t-shirts.
