Indigo Clothing is a t shirt printing specialist, printing t-shirts in quantities from 20 to 200 000 garments. When selecting a t-shirt printer the two key things to consider are (i) what t-shirts are being used to fulfil your order and (ii) what print method is being used to put your design onto the tees? If you use the wrong t-shirt or an inappropriate print method you may end up with an a lot of t-shirts that you aren’t happy with.

Firstly, decide what you need the t-shirts to do. What image do they need to convey, do they need to last a long time, do they need to be light or heavyweight, do they need to come in multiple colour ways, do they need to be unisex or do you need specific men’s or women’s styles, do they need to be organic or ethically produced?

Printing T-Shirts

Secondly, you need to print the t-shirts you have chosen. You can mix and match styles, colours and brands but we do have a minimum order of 20 items for screen printing. This is Indigo’s method of choice for printing due to the print quality but it has a time consuming setup process. The colours are bright and vibrant, the quality excellent and washed at 40 degrees without problems. Direct-to-Garment (DTG or Ditigal) and heat transfer (vinyl) t shirt printing methods are more suitable for printing smaller order quanities.
