New from Fruit of the Loom this t-shirt ticks all the boxes for screen printing. Made from open-yarn fabric designed for screen printing , it has a fine 28 knit gauge which gives a smoother, stable print area. It looks like Fruit have decided to move with the times and create a more retail looking soft feel t-shirt which moves away from their usual heavier boxier offerings. 10 colours have been initially released with more to be added in the new year.
Gildan Premium 4100
A recent addition to the Gildan T-shirt collection. The Premium Cotton Ring Spun T-Shirt has been introduced for customers looking for a bit more than the lighter 64000 ringspun t-shirt. Weighing in at 185 gsm it has quite a chunky feel for a ringspun tee. Prices start from just £1.32 plus VAT for whites and £1.61 plus VAT for colours. We like this shirt because of its thickness so it can hold a thick opaque colour like white without the print looking to thick.
This is a quality retail garment. With a weight of 425 gsm it is at the more expensive end of our t-shirt range with prices starting from £3.73, but as an individual purchase or purchased with a DTG print in retail terms it is a bargain. You will find that this item will pass the test of time and retain its shape and colour wash after wash. This t-shirt is ideal for re-branding; ask us about our neck label printing service. Please note delivery is 2 days for Continental products.
