We use premium t-shirt brands Bella Canvas and Continental Clothing

We love to print on premium t-shirts, Bella Canvas and Continental Clothing are our ‘go to’ brands.

Printing for fashion brands is often very different to printing band tees or event tees. Fashion brands naturally focus on the overall product, usually paying particular attention to how the garment feels when worn and rightly so. They are not just selling a t-shirt they are selling a fashion item. We have all had those super cheap tees which only look good at the time you buy them and once they have had a go in the washing machine they warp and never look quite right again. This is precisely why we like to use Bella Canvas and Continental Clothing for these jobs, they look amazing, print great and wear really well.

Bella Canvas

Their range is vast and is being added to regulary, ranging from standard unisex tees to bomber jackets. Bella garments are all produced in America, they are 100% fashion focused and offer items that are bang on trend.
One of my favourite tees to print are the unisex tri-blends, they are soft, great fit and take a print well. These are also great for a discharge print, because of the poly-cotton-rayon mix they give a really nice vintage worn look.

Continental Clothing

A UK based company, Continental also offer a great selection of garments and follow the latest fashion trends. Continental Clothing pride themselves on their focus on social responsibility

We all have a right to a safe and healthy work environment, a living wage, a legally binding contract. We all have a right to be free from discrimination and harassment, to join – or not to join – a labour union, to choose our work freely. We all have a right to fair and reasonable working hours. And our children have a right to go to school.

I like to use the ladies rolled sleeve t-shirts and the unisex N18, their fabrics are amazing with a great fit. Printing them is a pleasure with great results. We recently printed a batch of Gin Festival event t-shirts using the Continental N18 and N20 tees. We used these because of the superior fit and quality.

Your Brand

For those of you who are planning a new range for your brand or if you are in the process of developing a new fashion brand, I would strongly advise considering both Bella canvas and Continental Clothing. They are more expensive than your standard Gildan Heavy Cotton tees but the premium brand garments are worlds ahead in terms of quality, fit and style.
