How To Start a T-shirt Brand

Starting a t-shirt business can be a challenge, as there are several decisions to take and many possibilities available. Today we show you an inspiring example on how to start a t-shirt brand:

Before starting printing t-shirts you have to be clear about your printing budget. We recommend around 200-1000£ to start, if you want offer certain quality on your garments.

Marketing and management is just as important as having good designs. Starting with the name brand: a short, easy name that defines your style is the first step to success for your personalised t-shirts.


If you are not sure which printable t-shirts choose, we recommend you some popular models among designers:

We have made it easy for you to filter in our online tees catalogue by colour, style, cut or brand. This way you will surely find the custom t-shirts that best fit your designs.

Textile customisation depends especially on the design to be reproduced: it is not the same to print a logo in black ink or a detailed illustration. In these personalised t-shirts we have used screen printing:


Screen printing has the advantage of giving high quality results at a very low price, especially in medium and large runs. As a disadvantage, only flat colours can be reproduced.

Other printing techniques widely used by designers and brands are digital printing, embroidery or full print. Everything depends on the design!

A custom t-shirt brand not only stands out for the quality of their designs and their garments; the small details are equally important as well.

T-shirt labels can make a difference; that’s why we offer you a few different options to create your personalised labels. We made screen labels, hang tags labels and sewn labels for these screen printed tees:

Screen printed labels.

Hang tag.

Sewn label on the hem of the sleeve.

Custom tag on the hem of the bottom of the tee.

Finally, to keep your printed T-shirts organised and clean we recommend to fold and bag the tees. T-shirt packaging is a plus to protect your garments, and something that the customers values ​​when they receives their brand new tees at home.

To start a tee business you can contact our sales team directly. We wait for you! 🙂

Personalised tees for events

Without any doubt, personalised tees for events are a must today! A nice reminder for the attendees and at the same time extra promotion to generate more interest for upcoming editions!

Custom event t-shirts can be sold or given away. Whatever you choose to do, remember to offer medium quality tees. You can also create staff t-shirts for your event.

Vlissingen Vintage Festival organizers certainly understood what their attendees wanted for their 4th edition personalised t-shirts. The Fruit of the Loom Value t-shirt is a medium-premium range model of 100% cotton with Belcoro yarn for a softer feel and cleaner printing process.


Vlissingen Vintage is a 3 day festival, and as the name suggests you can find a vintage market surrounded by bikes, live music, food and drinks.

Another important factor for your printed event tees is a striking design, like our example of today. Just look at how original this design is, a real retro and vintage look that completely matches the event. We are really impressed!


Screenprint was used to reproduce this design in 3 colors: grey, green and black. Maybe you think now: black ink on a black shirt? Yes, in this case our graphic design team suggest to add black ink, in order to guarantee that the small details in the design can be optimally printed.

How exactly does the screen printing process work? First, we need to separate each colour of the design. A stencil of the design is created and attached to a frame with a special mesh. A squeegee is used to rub the ink through the mesh so that it sticks to the fabric where necessary – in the blank areas an impermeable emulsion is used to avoid excess paint transfer. Machines are now used for this technique though it is still a craft that requires skill and dedication just like our other methods for t-shirts printing.




Screen printing is by far the most popular technique to create customised online t-shirts. It is a customisation technique which always gives great, high quality results at a very attractive price. And the more tees you order, the cheaper it will be per item.

In case however, your design contains a photo or lots of colours or shading, we also offer a wide range of other personalisation techniques:

  • Full Print
  • CAD-cut vinyl
  • DTG digital printing
  • Classic Transfer
