One of the top reasons why Screen Printing is so popular is because it allows your unique design to be transferred in a high-quality way. This means you can expect your unique design to be more vivid and more vibrant, and thus be more noticeable. Another reason why Screen Printing Tees is suggested when creating Custom Tees is because Screen Printing will last the entire lifetime of the shirt (as long as the shirt is properly cared for). 

Screen Printing tends to work best on cotton T Shirts. Cotton is a natural material that easily absorbs colors, allowing the printed design to be colorful and vibrant. While 100% cotton is preferred, it’s possible to choose a cotton blend, but keep in mind the more cotton used to make the shirt, the more vivid the end result. The point of creating Promo Tees is to spread awareness so the last thing anyone wants to happen is for a T Shirt design to either be dull or fade away much too soon. This makes it essential to choose the right fabric and colors, as well as the right style when wanting to use the Screen Printing Method for creating long-lasting and high-quality Promotional Shirts.

Wondering about the difference between ringspun cotton and regular cotton? Ringspun cotton is a process that straightens and thins the cotton, which in turn makes these strands of cotton much softer. It also makes for an overall stronger material and thus will last longer when compared to regular cotton. While Screen Printing on regular cotton T Shirts will look fantastic, ringspun cotton T Shirts will absorb even more ink and accordingly will appear even more vibrant.
