Save Money on Custom American Apparel T-Shirts!

Price is often a main concern for people as they look to order Custom Printed American Apparel T-Shirts online, but there are a few things to consider next time you look at ordering custom t-shirts.  

1. Quality of Garment- Custom Ameican Apparel Tri Blend 50/25/25 T-Shirt is the most expensive t-shirt that we offer, while the standard 100% Cotton Gildan t-shirt is the cheapest shirt that we offer, but there is a HUGE difference in quality between the two and we also offer a great mix of in-between options to consider.  The Custom American Apparel Tri Blend 50/25/25 is super-soft, features a tailored fit and slightly higher sleeves than the 100% Cotton Gildan t-shirt, but the Custom 100% Cotton American Apparel or Custom 50/50 American Apparel t-shirt also offer the softer fabric, tailored fit and slightly higher sleeves (to compliment those big bicepts), but both of these garments are significantly cheaper.

2. Reduce the number of Ink Colors on the custom t-shirts- This may sound super-simple, but we have so many first-time custom t-shirt buying customers that are now aware that a 5 color print will cost more than a 1 or 2 color print.  The price will change per quantity ordered, but take it from us, if you want a super-simple way to get more shirts for you money, just reduce the number of ink colors per logo and you'll love the results... which brings us in to our 3rd point.

3. Reduce the number of Logos on the custom t-shirts- Simply put, just like the number of ink colors increasing the price of production, the more logos you print, the more it will cost to print.  If you are on a tight budget, you might want to reconsider doing 12 t-shirts with a 1 color front, back, left sleeve and lower back placement... could you get away with a 1 color front and back instead?  This will save you A LOT of money!

We're here to help and it's never our goal to bump the price up to make more money... we get more of a kick out of saving you money and putting a bigger smile on your face than adding one more ink color to the logo to make a few more cents. 

If you had any questions on the right garment or printing style, please contact us and we'd love to help you save money!
