Why T-Shirts?
T-shirts are built for comfort, usually out of 100% cotton, polyester, or a blend of cotton/polyester. They tend to be either lightweight (for summer or for men’s undershirts) or a little more heavy duty for regular wear. They’re easy to throw in the wash and can go with anything–skirts, shorts, pants, etc. Additionally, wearing a T-shirt can also help protect your skin; a regular T-shirt can keep out half of the sun’s rays!
What’s the Stats?
Believe it or not, about 95% of Americans wear T-shirts at some point in their life. Additionally, at least once a week, of the Americans who regularly wear T-shirts, almost 90% put on a T-shirt. bout 90% of Americans have at least one T-shirt in their drawers or closets that they just can’t get rid of because of the memories or sentimental value attached to it.

What Are The Most Popular Sellers?
Big buyers of screen printed tshirts tend to be large organizations, like colleges, fraternities and sororities, high school sports teams, etc. Many businesses tend to opt for custom embroidered polo shirts or custom company shirts that look a little more professional but are still matching in color, design, and logo. It’s a great way to identify and unify a distinct group of people. Other times you may see a large number of matching shirts is during class trips, when chaperones are desperate to pick their charges out of a large number of people.
What Do Costs Look Like?
For custom screen printed t shirts, the general rule is: “The more the merrier.” Many T-shirt companies who do custom made shirts like to do them in bulk, which drives the cost down. (This is typically why larger organizations opt for T-shirts, since they tend to be less expensive.) For specific colors, fonts, or designs, the company may add an extra cost. Additionally, some companies charge per letter, so you want to keep things concise.
