Comfort Colors Garment Dyed Tees and Tanks:

These offer unique colors not offered by any other manufacturer. They are the go to shirt for high school and college aged kids. A higher price point than your traditional popular tees, the colors and feel are worth it. Their shades of greens, blues, red, and everything in between are a few shades different than any other manufacturer. Printing your message on these is sure to gain attention.

They offer a ton of different hip styles that are more tapered than your traditional tees. They have various blends and textures making them very soft and comfortable to wear out on the town or even to bed. Their Triblend comes in many different styles including tanks and vnecks and both men and women’s styles. A slightly higher price point compared to the traditional custom tshirts but well worth the extra money.

We were actually introduced to this brand by college coaches we were calling on. At the time they weren’t carried by any of the major distributors. Low and behold a year later and all major distributors with the exception of one is carrying the full line of A4. They have tons of styles for both adult and youth as well as women’s and mens. They also cater to more popular trends with camo accents and piping. A great 2017 popul styles for your custom tshirts. These are strictly a performance brand so everything will be of materials that assist in moisture management from their hoodies to their shorts and everything shirt inbetween. Their quality and styles compete with the big boys but at a percentage of the big boy cost.

Gildan Softstyle:
If it’s Gildan then you know it’s quality. This softstyle is a few years old at this point and it uses ringspun cotton to give it the unique softness. It’s also tapered with a thinner body and shorter sleeves. It comes in various styles for adults in both mens and womens. A generous price point that can boost your tshirt sales or impress your own wearers.
