The top 5 custom T-Shirt options



Printed clothing folded on top of a desk

Personalised t shirts are good for many different reasons, whether it’s celebrating a special occasion, personalising your wardrobe or giving them as a gift. There are many reasons why you should get custom T Shirts and personalised clothing created.

When we get contacted about custom t shirts we usually get asked questions about the quality of the T Shirts that we have available and what T Shirts we’d recommend – and this is a very valid question.

The reason for this is simple, many people are looking for a mixture of quality and cost and they want something that is going to be comfortable to wear all day (or all weekend depending on how hardcore you are) which isn’t going to leave a huge dent in the bank.

For this reason, I’ve decided to create this list of our top 5 T Shirts which are chosen not just by me, but by our printing expert and our sales team as well. This helps to ensure that each T-Shirt covers 3 different points – Affordability, Comfort, and Printability.


The GD01 by Gildan is a beautiful T-Shirt which is ideal if you’re looking for a mixture of price and quality.

It features a tubular body which means that it falls perfectly around your body to give it a more ‘fitted’ look than other T Shirts that are available. It’s made out of 100% pre-shrunk cotton (100% cotton is a must if you’re looking to get T Shirts printed) and it’s available in a wide range of colours. This means that we can create all of your custom designs and the T-Shirt is perfect for all printing methods.

Another massive plus is, of course, the price. For small quantities, the GD01 is exceptionally well priced and this price gets better and better the more you order thanks to our price break system.

What does let Gildan down is that the quality on the T Shirts isn’t as good as some of the brands that we have available. However, don’t let this put you off if you’re looking for a T-Shirt that you’re going to wear for the stag do then this is a perfect choice if you’re looking for something more long-lasting and comfortable then continue reading below.

4. ANVIL AV105

The Anvil 105 is the perfect choice if you’re looking for something that offers a bit more of a fashionable look. It has a tubular body which means that it hangs perfectly to give it more of a stylish appearance.

It’s made from 100% Ringspun cotton as well which means that its comfortable to wear and has excellent printability so we can print your epic designs onto them easily and it will have all of the quality and detail that you intended.

As Anvil provides more of a stylish look and fit, the price is ever so slightly higher than the GD01 – but it’s still incredibly well priced, especially if you’re ordering over 11 T Shirts to take advantage of our price break system.

Another huge plus point to these tees is that they have easy, tearaway labels so you can quickly remove them if you find the labels are uncomfortable or if you’re looking to completely rebrand the T-Shirt.

3. SOL’S REGENT 11380

Now we’re really getting into the fashion end of the market. The Sol’s Regent T-Shirt is made from 100% semi-combed Ringspun cotton which gives it a more comfortable feel than the previous two T Shirts. The 100% cotton also means that it offers a perfect print quality so we can create your designs exactly how you want them.

The Regent has been part of Sol’s catalogue since 1995 and it’s easy to see why – there’s a huge range of colours, it’s made from high-quality comfortable material and it provides excellent print quality – a must if you want to create custom T Shirts.

As these T Shirts are high-quality, the price is above both the Gildan GD01 and the Anvil AV105 but not by much. This means that they still won’t cost a fortune to get a batch of these created.

The T Shirts are available in over 40 different colours and they run in sizes XS to 3XL.


If you’re looking for comfort, look no further than the B&C Exact range. The elastane 1×1 rib neck and tubular body shape ensure that you get a comfortable, stylish T-Shirt that’s perfect for all day (or longer) wear.

It’s also made from 100% Ringspun, pre-shrunk cotton which not only provides maximum comfort but it also means that it’s perfect for printing on. The T-Shirt also boasts twin needle sleeves and hem which provides much-needed strength to the T-Shirt and improves the overall durability.

While the B&C Exact T-Shirt is more expensive than other options, it’s not overly priced and is still incredibly affordable. Again, our Price Break system will bring the cost down if you’re looking to order larger quantities.

With multiple colours available and a range of different sizes, this is the perfect T-Shirt if you’re looking for something that’s long-lasting, easily customisable and won’t break the bank.


The Continental EP01 is a favourite amongst the staff here at Garment Printing for a number of different reasons.

The quality of the T Shirts is, simply put, amazing. They’re soft, comfortable to wear and they’re also perfect to print on. They’re not the cheapest option that we have, but this is offset by the fact that they’re made from 100% organic cotton which means that they’re not only gorgeous to wear, but they’re also eco-friendly as well!

The 100% cotton material means that we can print on them with no issues whatsoever and they also feature a single label in the back so they’re perfect for fully rebranding.

As mentioned, at Garment Printing, is one of our favourite brands, in fact, they’re loved by us so much that our Director and Chief – Gavin Drake – refuses to wear a T-Shirt by any other brand and that’s saying something!


So, there’s my list of the top 5 T Shirts for customisation. All of the T Shirts mentioned above are perfect for customisation and they are sorted by price and quality so you should look no further when considering T shirt printing.
