Choosing the right company for your custom t-shirts can seem daunting. In St. Louis you have a lot of options. You want the best quality printing on a comfortable shirt and you want them ready when you need them, right?
Custom t-shirts screen printing is an industry that the average person really has no idea of the process of which is carried out to get a design from a computer screen onto a quality t-shirt. I’d compare it to things like having your oil changed in your car or having an electrician come in and adding additional outlets to your house. Most people are not familiar with these processes.
When it comes to custom tees, I would first recommend a company that is going to take the time and speak with you about your specific needs. We are talking about having something completely custom made and the buyers input is just as important to the process as any other aspect. A t-shirt shop is custom printing your design on shirts and it should look exactly how you want it.
Another important thing to keep in mind is look at the history of the company. History means experience and a track level of doing things correctly. A company that has been in business for 20 years has seen everything. They know the tricks of the trade and their know how means they have been doing it long enough to keep at it.
Most people have no idea about the shirts available for purchase. T-shirts follow trends and typically set them. So a soft feeling cotton shirt with a slight taper down the side may fit your needs more so than a traditional cotton. Any issues with artwork, design, colors, ink colors should be caught early in the process and honestly, the first visit is really when any issues should arise so they can be nipped in the bud.
Probably the most important trait you want to find in a custom t-shirt company is time frame. Do they have a track record for fast turn around times on orders and meeting customer deadlines? Look at reviews you might find on the web. The last thing you want to experience is being one of the customers whose shirts are completed in the time frame you need them and your event becomes less successful because you don’t have your shirts.
