Others know the style and color of shirt they want and will play with the colors in the design to get the right look on the shirt. Hey, we know this can either be really fun or really overwhelming. We are happy to help you make the right decision for your group. If it seems too overwhelming, definitely let us help!
Popular garments for ministries include short-sleeve t-shirts, girls’ fitted tees, guys’ fitted tees, ladies’ t-shirts, long-sleeve t-shirts, hoodies and regular crew-neck sweatshirts. Looking for embroidery on polo shirts, jackets, bags, beanies or hats for your group? We have them too plus many other garment options.
Tips on Budgeting and Comparing Prices
The largest variables in price are number of colors in a design, number of locations the design will be placed on the garment (front, back, sleeves, etc.) and type of garment (t-shirt, sweatshirt, hoodie, etc.). One-color designs are the most affordable and the price increases slightly with each additional color added. Printing designs in multiple locations on a garment also bumps the price up.
Most garments are made of cotton or cotton/polyester blends. T-shirt prices increased dramatically in 2010 because of weather and natural disasters that adversely affected cotton farmers and apparel manufacturing facilities in various regions around the world which drove commodity prices up. Petroleum prices have also been trending up which puts upward price pressure on any polyester-blended apparel.
Generally, garment weight and color also affect pricing. Heavier fabrics, long-sleeve shirts, sweat pants/shirts and colored garments are more expensive than thinner, white garments. Dark shirts usually require a “base color” be applied to the garment in the printing process to ensure the colors in your design stand out and look crisp. This additional step typically increases the price of a dark shirt when compared to white or lighter-colored shirts.
T-shirts are generally separated by major suppliers into four categories: 4.2 oz. cotton fashion fit, 5.4 oz. cotton/poly blends, 5.4 oz. cottom and 6.1 oz. cotton shirts. The fashion fit shirts are popular with the younger crowd who like a thinner, form-fitting tee. The 5.4 oz. cotton/poly blended t-shirt is great because it is wrinkle resistant and rarely shrinks. The 5.4 oz. and 6.1 oz. cotton shirts are our most popular shirts combined with a 3-color design printed on the front. The heavier 6.1 oz. cotton shirt is popular with many clients who are purchasing white t-shirts for young ladies.
