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.
