What makes our t-shirts so good?

It might sounds obvious, but we’re incredibly proud of the quality of our t-shirts and the printing we use.

We use one of the most state of the art Direct-to-Garment (DTG) printers in the country for our in-house printed designs. We don’t use screen-printing, although a small number of our t-shirts and hoodies are vinyl transfers.

This means you’re guaranteed to get the best quality printing available right now in the UK, so it won’t start to fade or peel after a couple of wears and washes.

Here’s a little more information on the tees we use...

Men’s – For the vast majority of our t-shirts we use 100% cotton* Gildan Soft Style t-shirts, but will use Gildan Heavy Cottons when these are unavailable, particularly in larger sizes. Ringer t-shirts are usually printed on Fruit of the Loom garments.

Women’s – For the vast majority of our women’s t-shirt range we use 100% cotton* Gildan Soft Style which are fitted cut garments. Based on your feedback, we’re working on offering more styles in the near future.

Kid’s – For the vast majority of our kid’s t-shirts range we use 100% cotton* Gildan Soft Style t-shirts, which are replaced by Gildan Heavy Cotton or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts when unavailable.

Imported items - These can differ depending on country of origin, supplier and even by specific design but most are printed on (but not limited to) Gildan Heavy Cotton, Gildan Soft Styles, Anvil, Fruit of the Loom and Sol’s.

*Ash grey, antique red, antique blue, antique green t-shirts tend to have a 10% acrylic/polyester, 90% cotton composition.
