What is T-Shirt Printing all about?


There are many different ways to print T-shirts and other garments, choosing the right print method can be crucial to how your finished garments will look, and not all companies out there are able to offer you the results you are looking for when choosing which printing company you are going to trust. There are many sectors to the custom printed clothing market and what might be right for one, will not be right for all.

So how do you know what you need and what you are getting? At Shirtworks, we encourage you to ask questions and be happy with the answers before you proceed - after all, that's what we're here for.

The main factors to consider from the start will also govern the best method to use, and therefore what type of company, and the cost. These are:

* How many items do you want printed?

* How many colours make up your design?

* What will the finished garments be used for?

So, then you probably look for [ t-shirt printing ] using a search engine such as Google, and pages and pages of companies come up. At first glance, it's tricky to know who they all are and whether they can deliver what you need - after all they are all offering some form of printing onto clothing. Relatively few are offering you the level of T-shirt printing expertise and advice that Shirtworks offers.

On closer inspection, those many companies are not all doing what you need - as we mentioned, there are many sectors to the clothing customisation market. You'll see that some are novelty gift shops or small-scale corner shop printing companies, some are signwriters, and some are agents who buy from printers like us and sell on to you with their markup (although you'll probably not be able to tell from their website that they are just agents).

We, at Shirtworks, have over 25 years in-house experience of printing and embroidering T-shirts and other clothing and promotional goods. We started as a small operation back in 1986 and quickly grew into a leading T-shirt printing and clothing embroidery company supplying businesses, charities, clubs and institutions across the UK. See what our clients say about us and our customer survey statistics! We've used all the techniques on every different fabric, and learned the art and science of garment customisation from every angle, so we like to think we know what we are talking about!

And we haven't even mentioned clothing embroidery yet, which can be another great option for customising or personalising your clothing, depending on your needs. Read more about the benefits of embroidery here.
