Performance T-Shirt from Gildan

I really like the longsleeve perfomance T-Shirt #42400 from Gildan. These moisture wicking garments are great for running and sports.

We print on the performance fabric through a fine mesh, adding a catalyst to the ink to properly adhere it to the specialty fabric. It comes in a range of colors including the insanely bright "safety green".
We can print one color on these from 9.95 on orders of 24 pieces or more. The unit price goes down as the quantity goes up. We can print up to six colors, drop me an email or call for more info.

    Manx Media Wants to Print Your T-Shirts

    Who Are We?

    We are custom screen printers, offering high quality printing on T-Shirts and Sportswear at the wholesale level. Manx Media is Steve Lafler and David Perkin. I'm Steve. I handle the order processing, invoicing, sales, graphics, marketing and general office/business tasks. David runs the press, burns screens, handles shipping and maintains the production facilities. We've been working together as custom screen printers in Portland, Oregon since 2005, but both of us have been in the business since the 80s.

    David is located over in the St. John's nieghborhood, Portland where he maintains the shop.  I work remotely from Oaxaca, Mexico where I've been since 2007.

    What Have We Done?

    David and I have printed T-Shirts and Sportwear for dozens of clients. Currently we do tourist T-Shirts for the San Francisco market, and summer camp T-Shirts for a company that has three camp sites in the Bay Area, California. We also do shirts for comic book stores and cartoonists.

    Here are some of the clients we've worked with:

    Cartoonists: Lloyd Dangle, J.R. Williams, Mary Fleener, R.L. Crabb, Renee French and Keith Knight.

    What Can We do for You?

    We can print your T-Shirts and Sportswear. Our focus is on top quality and service. We want to deliver the best possible printed shirts to you that exactly fulfill your needs. We put the goods you need in your hands, when you need them.For example, when Margaret Cho (a comedian) was on tour, she wanted 2 - 400 T-Shirts to magically appear at each venue the day of her show. We made that happen.

    We'll match you up with the style and color of shirt that fits the bill. There is a dizzying array of T-Shirts and Sportswear to choose from. Before we print the job, we'll show you a proof to be sure you are satisfied with the quality of the work.

    We can print up to 500 one color T-Shirts per day, 250 mulit-color shirts (2 - 4 color) or 150 full color shirts (5 - 6 color.)

    How Do We do it?

    We are expert garment printers. We print on a Workhorse 6-color manual press. We can print up to six colors in perfect registration. We offer a complete in-house art service at realistic rates.

    Bella: The Best Women's T Styles

    Bella continues to give American Apparel a run for it's money with beautifully styled women's T's and Sportswear. Today I'm posting about the Bella Baby Rib Scoopneck T (#b1003). It's a basic women's T that flatters the figure and features a stylish scoop neckline. It comes in offbeat colors like moss, plum, chocolate and currant along with standards such as navy, baby blue, black, red and white.
    The baby rib fabric takes a print like a dream. Manx Media can set you up with a custom order of the Bella #B1003 scoop neck T with a one color print for under $7.00 per shirt on orders of 50 pieces or more. Of course we can do multi-color printing, for a bit more. There is a one time/first time fee of 40.00 to set up a film and screen for your custom screen printing job. Shipping via UPS is extra. Bella comes in a wide range of great women's styles, such as spagetti strap tank tops. Call or drop me an email to discuss your imprinted sportswear needs.
