Why should you start t-shirt printing?

T-shirt printing is a form of t-shirt production that makes custom t-shirts accessible to almost anyone. T-shirt printing starts with a t-shirt, known as a blank, produced by a manufacturer. This manufacturer produces shirts specifically for this or for use as a customized product in the custom product aftermarket that exists for t-shirts.

Custom t-shirts printing

While some well-known brands will also produce blank t-shirts for this customized t-shirt printing aftermarket, most often there are brands that you may not have heard of. That does not mean however that there is any lack of quality in the t-shirt printing market. Far from it! There is a diverse range of manufacturers that produce the whole range of t-shirts along with the price and quality line. We work with many such brands here at Printify!

T-shirt printing techniques

There are many different types of t-shirt printing techniques. These techniques have evolved over the years, some becoming more sophisticated, others are relatively new to the market. T-shirt printing is always being developed with new and modern processes. T-shirt printing has come a long way from some of the garage-based machines that you may be familiar with. 

If you went to a high school with a big football team with a huge fan base, then you might be familiar with some of these methods, especially some of the older ones. However, T-shirt printing has come a long way since some people begin printing them in their garages or basements. Let’s look at the most popular ways of t-shirt printing today.

T-shirts printing step by step

1. Creating Printify account

The first step to creating your budding custom t-shirt printing empire? Create your Printify account with us today. Once your account is created, you just need to wander over to the mock-up generator to start putting the first pieces of your store together. 

2. Choose a t-shirt you want to print

Choose the t-shirt you’d like to print from our product catalog. You can see which are the best selling, and also compare print providers and sellers by price. Not only that, you can see our ranking of the print providers, that way you know which ones are rated the best! 

Here are some of our best selling custom t-shirts for printing:

  • Unisex Jersey Short Sleeved Tee by Bella+Canva, 3001
  • Unisex Heavy Cotton Tee by Gildan, 5000
  • Men's Short Sleeve Tee by Delta, 11730
  • Unisex Ultra Cotton Tee by Gildan, 2000
  • YOURDESIGN

    3. Mock it up

    Then, the mockup generator launches. The mock-up generator is the way you can develop products on our platform. Use it to upload your image and place it on your product. The mock-up generator will show you where the print zones are on the product. Some shirts have front, back or sleeve options, while others will be just front print. 

    Don’t forget, we have three methods for creating shirts:

  • DTG printing: Direct to Garment Printing, your design is printed directly on the t-shirt print areas.
  • All-over print t-shirts (AOP): your design can be printed on the entire t-shirt.
  • Embroidery: Your design is sewn into the garment. See our embroidery guide.
  • 4. Check image quality

    Take special note of the image quality, we do a quality check just to make sure the image you’re using for your design meets our printing standards. If you’re able to, make sure you have a dpi of 300 - this is the best quality for t-shirt printing. The quality will suffer if you stretch the image from a smaller to a larger design.

    5. Print it and order a sample

    Custom t-shirt printing is the next stage. You’ll want to order a sample to make sure your custom t-shirt design is cooked to perfection. That way, you can be sure that your design looks exactly the way you want it to look. Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to get things published to your store!

    T-shirt printing and print providers, ranked and rated

    Sure, you could do all the research period you could look at from hundreds of print providers all around the world. You could call them each individually, visit their websites, and decide which is the best print provider for you to work with. And if you’re lucky, after doing all that research, you’ll still be around to sell your products! We have a better solution. Use our platform. Higher providers are ranked, they are rated, the production times are listed. You get to decide who you want to work with when you choose which t-shirt printing company to fulfill your orders. That is the advantage of working with Printify.

    Custom T-shirt Printing Costs

    T-shirt printing costs

    Platform cost. Production costs. Shipping cost. When you are going about your t-shirt printing for your store, in order to be profitable, you need to know all of these things. Luckily for you, we are completely transparent about these costs. You get to see these cars with each print provider before you decide where to even make your product. 

    Imagine that you want to be as profitable as possible, keep your costs low, and predictable. Imagine that we know this and that we know all of our store owners think this way. 

    You don’t have to imagine it because with Printify, it’s reality.

    T-shirt printing no minimums

    We were just talking about screen printing above. Imagine that with screen printing you'll have a somewhat more expensive production process designed for printing a large number of T-shirts. T shirt printing with screen printing means that train providers typically will require a minimum number of shirts to produce in order to create the aforementioned stencil.

    What if we told you with us there is no minimum. What have we told you that are printing methods that allow us to make each t-shirt on demand? That means there’s no minimum, you can make a single order, have one t-shirt, or an order of 1000+ t-shirts. There’s no limit and there’s no floor, that’s what it means to have no minimum with Printify for t-shirt printing!

    Order routing means no trouble for your order

    We've learned The thing is too about production in our time. Production can get a little messy, sometimes print providers are open sometimes they're on holiday sometimes they run out of their blanks. The horror. 

    Not with us. No longer. We’ve learned that the unpleasant circumstances of life can be optimized out of our production process by allowing custom order routing. Is one of your suppliers experiencing an uncommonly strong strain of the seasonal flu? No problem. Route that order to a new provider in a blink of the eye. 

    At Printify, we hate when orders go unfulfilled. That’s our whole mission to fulfill orders on our platform for our store owners. We’re not going to let something like a little hiccup at a print provider stop us from getting your product to your customer. And we allow you that flexibility with custom order routing.

    Get started with custom t-shirt printing

    Selling custom t-shirts is one of the most popular ways you can monetize your content or your brand online.

    No up front cost

    Even if you sell other products, selling custom t-shirts costs you nothing and can add real money to your bottom line. Consider that of 50 stores we surveyed from popular Youtubers and influencers, all of them sold at least some kind of t-shirt in their shop.

    Designing custom t-shirts

    The most popular custom t-shirt designs aren’t even complex. Catchphrases, slogans, even inside jokes are usually what sells best. A lot of the designs are just words on a simple black or white t-shirt that lets every other fan that the wearer comes across know that they are in good company.

    Custom t-shirt dropshipping

    This is where the magic happens - custom t-shirt dropshipping. Because the t-shirt is printed on-demand and shipped only when sold, the print provider can ship the t-shirt directly to the customer. Never has it been so easy to make, sell, and deliver custom t-shirts than before.
