When it comes to customizing a t-shirt, your options are endless. If you have a small budget, don't be discouraged; there are plenty of affordable solutions to create the t-shirt that friends, family, and the public will love.
T-Shirt Material Determines Pricing
If you're looking for an inexpensive t-shirt, there is no shortage of options available for your order. Depending on your budget, you can climb up to a more premium option, but even the base-level shirts will be super comfortable and get the job done.
Your cheapest option is a jersey tee - a 100% cotton shirt. Cotton t-shirts are probably the most common type of t-shirts… and why wouldn't they be? They're super comfortable, soft, and breathable (all with an affordable price tag).
A poly-blend tee is a perfect option at a slightly higher price range. If you want a lighter-weight shirt and are willing to spend a couple extra bucks, this shirt will deliver. The shirt's material is a 65% polyester/35% cotton blend.
1 Print Location on the T-Shirt
It's easy to get excited while designing your own t-shirt. Regarding budget-friendly, it's best to keep it simple. More print locations mean higher costs.
Even with only one print location, you still have room to express creativity through your shirt design. Whether it's the back, front, or sleeves you want to print on, you'll still have plenty of space to show off great graphics.
In recent trends, minimalistic designs are the fashionable choice. Crowded designs can be hard to look at and make shirts look gaudy. A straightforward and blatant message can be beneficial to your message and inexpensive.
Direct-to-Garment has No Design Color Limitations
Color is an excellent asset in designing your custom shirts to make them total showstoppers with multi-colors in your design. Direct-to-Garment printing allows you to construct a pristine look by developing complicated artwork with many beautiful colors.
When adding lots of colors, the complexity of a design won't be compromised. Don't get misled by the idea that less is more in the world of t-shirts. Direct-to-Garment will allow you to create a design that screen printing is not capable of and keep within budget.
Price breaks are perhaps the best way to save money without surrendering anything. With the science of price breaks, the more shirts you order, the more you will keep! If you order more additional shirts and see a significant price decrease, you may even be able to an extra logo on the back.
A hefty price tag is the main factor scaring people away from designing their own custom shirts. When you throw your perfect design onto a t-shirt and see that the price comes out to over $120, your first thought would be, "well, that is way too much!" But that cost applies when you order a single t-shirt. When you order 25 t-shirts, your price would seem much more tolerable. Ordering 60 shirts would bring your price per shirt down even lower.
It may seem like a substantial commitment to increasing your order quantity, but doing so will dramatically lower your cost per shirt. Check out the price breaks for your order before you place it because you could be spending more than you should!

According to industry statistics, in 2022, there will be over 3 million construction companies in the U.S. With such market saturation, making sure your construction company stands out from the competition has never been more critical. Business owners can grow their construction company by handing out t-shirts and caps to help promote their company.
Your construction business caps and t-shirts should be high quality with a crisp, bold logo that's seen from 25 feet away. Your t-shirts should have a left chest print and a full back print that displays your logo and slogan in bold letters.
Marketing is valuable, meaning a construction company shirt is only as effective as the branding it displays. Analyzing how effectively your logo and slogan communicate your construction company's purpose and identity can help to look at different companies that have mastered it.
