Brand your custom screen printed t-shirt

There are many different ways to brand your custom screen printed t-shirt, and our hope is that this blog will give you some insight on a few different techniques to brand your shirts!

The first piece of advice that we have for our clients is to build a relationship with a specific printer. We advise you to sit down with your printer and let them know about plans pertaining to your custom t-shirt design. From this point your printer should have a good vision for where you are planning to go, and they can advise you on what they feel is best for the shirt, print colors, and size, while keeping the integrity of the vision you have implemented.

The second piece of advise is to explore different tag items. Typically most shirts come with an inside tag, however, some shirts will also have a tag on the bottom of the t-shirt. We propose that you use a design company to create customizable tags that will showcase your brand name and any other information that you deem relevant. This is a perfect way to show your customers what kind of quality they can expect to see from your custom t-shirt line and the kind of care you’ve put into creating a brand they will want to share with their friends.

Lastly, we advise all our customers to explore a versatile market for the their custom t-shirt line. We see so many our customers create spectacular t-shirts, but they seem to always market towards adults and tweens. However, baby, toddler, and even youth sized shirt seem to always get left out of the mix for some unknown reason.  We suggest that you always try to find new ways to expand your clientele and think outside of the box! And, of course we want to help you succeed in doing so!

Regardless of where you are with your custom screen printed t-shirt line, we want to help you make a brand for yourself! If you would like to speak in further detail about middlemen that we use or suggest, or have questions pertaining to starting your very own custom screen printed t-shirt line, do not hesitate to contact us through phone or email!

Have you been searching the Nashville area for a local screen printer who specializes in custom screen printed VBS shirts? With summer in full swing, one commonality that I have noticed is the enormity of VBS going on around us! We would love to help you create your custom VBS shirts- ones that will reflect your VBS theme.

I have such vivid memories of growing up and being taken to VBS for that one week out of the summer. It typically began with singing and dancing which led to snacks and hanging out with your friends, and ending with a variety of arts and crafts. The other aspect of VBS that I loved was being able to wear the custom t-shirts that had been printed for that particular week and theme. It was a way to really showcase what the church was trying to emphasize. Over the past few years we have worked with several large organizations who host VBS, and we help them create a one of a kind custom screen printed t-shirt. Some have been extremely elaborate, while others have been very simply in their design. Regardless, we dedicate a generous amount of time with each client to ensure they have the best quality shirt and design for their budget.

Here are three reasons how custom screen printed VBS shirts can be useful:

  1. They send a message: Shirts can send a message loud and clear to children, other workers, parents, and anyone who can see the shirt. They allow your audience to grasp the message that you are trying to convey for that one week!
  2. They can be used to show authority: While this may seem silly, one important aspect of any event with children is their safety. Why not create multiple shirts or a variation of a shirt to separate the children from leaders?
  3. T-shirts are inexpensive: Don’t let the “custom” fool you into thinking they are too expensive for your budget. Think of it in these terms: the more detailed the artwork (meaning more colors) the more expensive printing becomes. Thus, something simple, one to two colors, means that you are saving more money than you think!

Have questions or need direction with printing custom t-shirts for VBS or any event going on this summer? Please do not hesitate to contact us at so that we can walk through the steps and get your quote started today! Make this VBS one that is exceptionally memorable!
