Buying Custom Screen Printed T-shirts – Tip Two – Picking the T-Shirt Color

Tip Two in Buying Custom Screen Printed T-Shirts

Now that you have the shirt style you want, the next step is picking the shirt color when buying custom screen printed t-shirts.

Picking your t-shirt shirt color may seem like a simple decision but there are several things to consider.

First, what are your team, club or business colors?  Organizations usually have contrasting colors like blue and gold (GO MICHIGAN!).    If you have purchased screen printed t-shirts previously you may consider choosing a different shirt color for this next order.

Second, you might consider a neutral fabric color like black or grey.  If you use a neutral color you may need to add a second or third ink color to your design.  This will effect the overall price of the order.  More on this in an upcoming blog.

Third, there are now fabrics that have had treatments applied to them.  Heathered fabrics have color variations within a range of the overall t-shirt color.  There are also t-shirts that have contrast built into the shirt.  Ringer t-shirts, raglan jerseys and shirts that have slight accents can give your final custom screen printed t-shirts some real gravitas.

Finally, the shirt color you select will be the palate that is used to build the graphic design.

All these factors will ultimately converge when you open the box and inspect your completed order.  The more knowledge you have about the process and the more thought you put into steps the more satisfied you will be with your purchase.
