the processMost people make the mistake by compare the quality of T-shirts by the weight of the material. The thickness of T-shirts usually gets measured according to the grams per square metre of the material, which is between 120 grams and 200 grams.

This is only an estimate, but a 145 gram T-shirt is not necessarily a better quality shirt than a 170 gram T-shirt. T-shirts that gets categorized as a 145 gram per square metre preshrunk and produced from 100% cotton material with interlock weaving appears neater and will keep its shape better as for example a 180 gram “ carded cotton” T-shirt.

Carded cotton usually is made of lower grade material and mass produced. The colour process of these lower quality shirts also differs and lower quality shirts tend to fade. However these lower quality shirts still remain very popular because of price sensitive clients and a large competitive market.

This is the most common and the oldest process in which T-shirts can be printed. Positives must be prepared, silk screens must be manufactured and these silk screens then get set up. This is a lengthy and time consuming process and therefore more expensive on lower quantities, but cheaper on high volume printing. The minimum amount of shirts printed with this process is 50, if the print consists of 1 or 2 different colours in the design, 100 shirts if the design consists of 3 or more colours.

A big advantage of screen printing is that the ink penetrates in to the material and thereafter goes thru a heat process. This printing method lasts even longer than what the shirt itself will last.
