Custom printed Dri Fit shirts vs Cotton

I always hate to be in a tournament or enter a fun run and see a team with custom printed cotton shirts. Don't get me wrong, I love cotton tees and wear them all the time. But like anything else there's a place and time for everything. If you're going to be outside or anywhere you will be sweating, there are so many more benefits to dri fit apparel. If the reason is cost, it's not that much more, if any, to get custom dri fit apparel. After you factor in the set up fees, extra charges for multiple colors, and minimums, you might even be paying more. 
We always get the excuse, "Well we're only going to wear them once". Why? Why pay for a shirts just to throw it away at the end of the day. Why not get a durable, comfortable, great looking shirt that'll you'll be able to wear again and again?
Our Dri Fit shirts are UPF +50. The moisture wicking technology is woven into the fabric, unlike most shirts that are just strayed on topically and fade after a few washes. And our anti-microbial technology helps keep the garments fresh , attractive, and ready for more.
Call us or email us, there are so many options with our dri fit shirts that will fit your plan and budget. We guarantee you'll be more than happy with your custom printed dri-fit sun shirts.

If you've ever worked with a graphic artists or any kind of designer, you know how tough it can be to explain what your visions of the project are. That's why we are creating a videos series to show you all the newest options in our online design lab. We call it a lab because now you can experiment with your designs, you're in charge of the design process. We've just added new artwork that you'll actually want to use. Not the run of the mill silhouette clip art, but full color professionally produced images. We've also added some new features that will allow you to enhance your text. You can add a shadow or a glow to the background. There's also an option to twist or turn the words so they will fit into a flag or banner image. Use a color fade to give your text a boost!
Below is our first in a series showing off the latest features. We will be uploading more videos and more artwork for you to use free of charge.
As always, please contact us with any questions you might have.

New Camouflage Custom Shirts

I know this post sounds like a commercial but it's actually meant to introduce you to our new All-Over-Print Camo designs. Okay, maybe it is a shameless promotion but it's just that we are very excited to introduce our Water Camo and Hunting Camo SPF shirts! Yes, we have been printing on camouflage shirts for ever, why is this different? Before we would have to screen print your artwork or logo onto a camo shirt. This limited the amount of colors in the design because we had to use a screen print. We also have to use a thick white under base so the design would show up on the camouflage shirt.
We are now starting with a white dri-fit shirt and dye sublimating the whole shirt. Your artwork is included in the all over design so you will have a full color logo dyed into the fabric of your custom SPF Dri-Fit shirt.
We offer the water-camo in many different colors along with a bunch of hunting camos.
Email us or give us a call and we will help you to get started.

Hello Summer Sun

Summer is here and no matter what part of the U.S. you live in, you'll be soaking up some rays and you'll need to protect your skin before you get burnt.

Here in Florida we are outside most of the year, either for work or play. We make yearly visits to the dermatologist and  are experts on what shape a mole should be. Because of this we are very conscious of how important sun protection is, using either cover ups or sun block.

Lately, a majority of our custom prints are on dri fit apparel. Businesses like pressure washers or yacht detailers love the quick dry material. These fabrics spread the moisture throughout the garment so it is easily evaporated into the environment.
They also like the fact that the fabric is rated 50+ SPF and is recommended as an effective sun protectant from the Skin Cancer Foundation.

We've had a lot of people go for the less expensive cotton tees with a screen printed design. While these are great quality shirts and prints, it's not the best option if you're holding an event outside. The cotton will absorb the sweat and will make the shirt heavier, resisting evaporation. This is why cotton shirts take so long to dry. I know my grandfather would wear long sleeves and jeans outside. He would argue that it made you feel cooler than shorts and a shirt. He was essentially wearing clothing that was drenched in his own bodily fluids but I guess I can see his reasoning.

Well, whatever your choice of sun protection is, make sure you don't go out without it.

We're always asked how the dye sublimation printing process works and why we can't print on dark shirts. We've created this visual that will show you what your artwork will look like on different colored shirts and what will happen when you dye sub a dark colored shirt.
Because the artwork is actually dyed into the fabric of the shirt, different colored apparel will give the artwork a different effect. For example, white lettering shows up white on a white shirt but on a yellow shirt the lettering will be yellow. The reason is that white ink isn't an color option when using sublimation printing so the white areas of your artwork will be left blank letting the color of the shirt to show through. There are many advantages to sublimation printing and to screen printing, let us help you choose what method is best for your custom printed apparel.
