Best T-Shirt Brands to Use for Screen Printing Quality Custom Tees

We’ll be the first to say that it’s not all about labels and you can really go in any direction. But, when it comes to quality it’s a different story. Especially, when we’re talking about a custom tee that'll be worn often.

Before we talk about brands ask yourself two questions.

How often will the tees be worn? Daily, Monthly, Yearly?

What kind of activity will be done in them? Working Hard or Hardly Working?

Okay, now that we have that all figured out, we can dive into the brands. To make it easy we compiled a list of the top brands for t shirt printing. Also, note that these brands have many other apparel items that can be used for screen printing, like, hoodies, hats, sweats, tank tops and jackets.
