Hanes is Still Here: Their Best Value

Hanes still makes great T-Shirts when all is said and done. While the Hanes Beefy-T no longer rules the roost, it is still a big seller, although maybe a bit overpriced.
As a custom screen printer, I think the best value from Hanes is the #5280. It is a medium weight all cotton T-Shirt that comes in a stack of colors. It wears well -- the lighter medium weight shirts have replaced the heavy weights in overall popularity.

Of course, Hanes call it a heavy weight. but it's listed as a 5.2 ounce cotton T-shirt, and any screen printer will tell you, that means medium weight, baby!
The 5280 is priced about the same as the Gildan Heavyweight T, and a bit more than the Gildan medium weight T. It may have a slightly softer feel than the Gildan.
As ever, drop me an email if you would like to price out your custom screen printing job on the Hanes 5280.

Longlseeve Ts: Gildan vs. Fruit of Loom

Longsleeve cotton T-Shirts continue to be a popular style for decorating with screen printing. My two favorite longsleeves are the Gildan 2400, a heavyweight cotton T, and the Fruit of the Loom 4930, a middle weight cotton T.
Both have their place, with the Gildan the choice on a brisk day. Both come in a wide range of colors. I prefer the Fruit of the Loom, as I am more comfortable in a medium weight T these days, for ease of wear and style.
Drop me an email if you would like to quote your screen printing job on either of these excellent shirts.
