3 Suggestions for Back to School Custom T-Shirt Printing

It’s that time again! School supplies have made their way back to the center aisles in our grocery stores, and I can already hear the whining come from the mouths of our children protesting the onset of the inevitable: a new school year. Regardless of whether or not you have a child attending Kindergarten or making their way to college, we, at TakeHold Printing, want to help our schools print the perfect t-shirt!

 3 Suggestions for Back to School Custom T-Shirt Printing:

 Make your shirts fun! We suggest using wild colors to attract the attention of your students and have fun with the design! We also suggest that our clients take full advantage of our design studio on our website, which is extremely helpful when designing a custom screen printed t-shirt. This tool can help narrow down color selections, font size, size of design, and other questions that you might have, pertaining to your custom screen printed t-shirt.

If you are looking to attract the attention of your students and parents, then we suggest creating a shirt that speaks to the mission of your school and what you are seeking to accomplish. Maybe this shirt is for an upcoming event or a back to school bash. Regardless of the event, custom screen printed t-shirts are a great way to unify all students and faculty! Who knows, it might even bring a little excitement (and less grumbling) to the new year!

We also suggest that schools takes advantage of our discount and promotional offers. These incentives work great for organizations, schools in particular, that need a large amount of shirts but are looking to keep the cost reasonably low. If you are looking for a steal, then we suggest keeping an eye out for our regular, monthly emails or give us a call at 615.943.1402 to see if we are running a special!

4 Dollar T-Shirt

Here at TakeHold Printing we want to introduce our customers, and potential customers, to the concept of the 4 dollar t-shirt! If you are in the market for high quality custom screen printed t-shirts and are looking to save a buck (or two!), then we want to let you know there is a way to purchase our 4 dollar tee!  We have compiled a list of three simple, yet effective, ways to reduce your shirt cost!

1. The first tip that we suggest is using an affordable t-shirt brand, such as Gildan or Comfort Colors. If you are ordering a large amount of t-shirts, we always suggest Gildan because they are practical, affordable, and a very durable t-shirt. We have used Gildan t-shirts for mud runs, marathons, construction companies, and even preschool functions. Why? Because they are the most practical and cost effective t-shirt that you can purchase!

2. Although using an affordable t-shirt brand, such as Gildan, is extremely cost effecient, we also recommend ordering higher quantities of shirts to offset the cost of each shirt. For example, a shirt order that contains 50 shirts will be more expensive, per shirt, than ordering 200 shirts. If you are looking to save some money then this is definitely the easiest way to do so!

3. Lastly, we want to cover the topic of artwork. I realize that this might surprise our customers; however, our goal is always to inform and educate our customers on tips and tricks to save money. Artwork cost is determined by the amount of colors present in a particular design; therefore, colors present equal and determine the amount of screens that a printer must use (more screens = higher print cost/ less screens=lower print cost). The more simple the artwork, in terms of colors present, means that less screen will be used, thus the cost remains affordable. We recommend simplifying artwork as much as possible to get the best bang for your buck.

So there you have it- 3 simple, yet effective ways to purchase your 4 dollar t-shirt! Three factors that we guarantee will play a major role in decreasing the cost of t-shirt and help you save money!

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!
