It’s your orientation camp at your polytechnic or university. Your friend has mocked up a beautifully designed T-shirt, and it’s your job as part of the camp committee to get the T-shirt printed. You scurry around hurriedly, trying to find a T shirt printing service that can get the job done right: you want quality prints at a budget, and they need to be ready before the camp starts.
If you ever face such a situation, here are three tips to help you find the perfect T shirt printing service in Singapore for all your customised T shirt printing needs.
1. Go online!
One of the most common mistakes students make when searching for a T shirt printing service is heading down to a physical printing store to get their design printed. You should avoid that as much as possible. Physical stores, such as those at Queensway Shopping Centre, will likely charge you more for your T shirts, as they have to cover the costs of renting the physical space.
Instead, heading online for your T shirt printing needs can help greatly save costs. You can even get an instant idea of how much your order would cost without the hassle of a phone call, as all the information is available on the website. You can even spend a bit of time comparing the prices of different sellers, all without moving away from your laptop. It is definitely a much easier way to find the cheapest T shirt printing service in Singapore.
2. Check your T-shirt’s material
Before ordering your T shirt, confirm with your camp committee the type of material you would like your shirt to be printed on. Then, you can search for a T shirt printing service that offers that material.
There are two main types of T shirts: cotton shirts, and dri-fit shirts. Cotton shirts are great for simple events, and are cheaper, while dri-fit shirts are great for absorbing sweat during physical activity. The feel of each material greatly differs as well, and every person is likely to prefer one or the other.
After deciding which material you would like your shirt to be printed on, then you need to find a printing service that can offer that particular material.
CustomPrint offers both cotton and dri-fit T shirts.
3. Understand the different types of printing
There are actually multiple ways of printing a T shirt and the method used can greatly affect the cost of your order.
The main factors that will affect the cost of printing are the number of colours you require on your T shirt, the size of the print, and whether special printing is required.
As researching on the type of printing can be tedious, online shops can be useful as they skip this step altogether – you can input all your specifications, and the online system will generate the best price for your T shirt order.
Finally, the types of printing can affect how your T shirt looks when the order is completed. If you have concerns over the types of printing, it is recommended you contact your printing service.
