    Custom Tees: Getting The Best Value

    Creating custom tees can provide you with a world of possibilities, but that’s not to say that you need to pay a fortune for custom printed t-shirts.

    Here we take a look at the many ways in which you can get custom tees in Omaha at a great value.

    Go for a design that features either one or two colors

    Going for a simplistic design that features just one or two colors is a lot more cost effective than opting for something more complex with a lot of color when it comes to screen printing. This is because each and every one of these colors must be printed with a different screen or stencil. This results in more time and materials so it carries a higher price tag. A one color screen print will be more cost effective compared to custom tees that feature three or more colors.

    Choose your T-shirt:

    When choosing a garment brand for your custom tees, there is practically a never ending range of styles available for screen printing. If you’re wanting to balance quality with budget then you need to choose your brand carefully with American Apparel most certainly being an out-of-the-question, top end tee. Opt for brands like Next Level , Bella+Canvas, or Gildan. These brands offer up plenty in the way of well-structured materials and design variety.

    Use negative space to create another color: 

    Clever use of negative space can add another color to your palette, as well as achieving an effective design. See the image above for the perfect example of negative space in action.

    Check out the pricing structure

    Making the most out of the pricing structure and the price breaks that are provided for buying in bulk is key to cutting your costs per shirt. So check out our pricing sheet and choose an amount that works for you, as well as your budget.

    There you have it! The tips outlined in this post can help you save some real money when you choose to screen print custom tees.
