When you think of wearing custom T-shirts made, sometimes it’s hard to think about wearing them in the next season. Here, at TakeHold Printing, we would like to help you design something you can wear season after season. A screen-printed T-shirt is sure to last you year after year. 

Screen Printing Process

The art of screen printing requires a special mesh screen, a squeegee, fabric ink, your image, and also the right type of fabric. Typically, cotton or a cotton/polyester blend will hold the ink the best. Many people like the cotton/poly blend for softness. 

Your design is then cut into a stencil and applied to the mesh screen. The ink, one color at a time, will then be added to the image. The squeegee is then used to pull the color across the image and into the fabric. Once all colors have been applied and the ink has dried, the image will then be heat set. 

Custom Apparel That Lasts

If you’re thinking about purchasing holiday gifts for your friends and family, why not choose a custom T-shirt? You can choose a design that speaks to their personality. Every time they wear their new, custom-made shirt, they will remember who they got it from. T-shirts and other accessories are popular for gift giving. 

By choosing the right fabric and the best style of shirt, you can be sure to have a long lasting design. Being wintertime, you can choose long sleeves that will still last into the cooler parts of spring. Choose designs that can go season after season as well. 

Sports for All Seasons

For most, basketball season is upon us. Maybe you aren’t sure how to dress but want to show your school spirit. If you had a short sleeve shirt you had made for football, then just layer it over a long sleeve shirt for basketball season. Any other sport will work, too. 

Layers can go a long way. You can choose generic designs that are made for your school that doesn’t pertain to a specific sport. School colors rarely change so choosing shirts and designs that go with the school are always a good idea. 

Types of T-Shirt Styles

When choosing the best T-shirts for screen printing, really it’s the material that matters most as described above. The styles of shirts you can choose are nearly endless. Crewnecks and V-necks are pretty popular styles. You can also choose other neck styles as well as sleeve length. 

Shirts aren’t the only things that can be screen printed. You can also choose pants or even blankets for those chilly nights. You can even customize special tote bags and purses.
