A long time ago, before the Internet existed, t-shirt screen printing was a whole mission. In some cases, it was a Mission Impossible type mission.
If you wanted to find t-shirt screen printing services, you had to go to a local shop. That means having to physically leave where you are and commute to a specific location to get the service you need.
We respect local shops, but we must say that we are happy we live in the digital age. Today, you can get your custom t-shirts printed online without ever leaving the comfort of your home—except for when you step out on your porch to get your package after it arrives.
But can an online t-shirt printing company really give you the same quality product as a local screen printer? And what about customer service?
Don’t worry, we’ll answer all those questions and more. Here’s everything you need to know about why online t-shirt printing is easier than ever.
The Luxury of Ordering Custom Shirts Online
One of the main benefits of ordering online is that you can do it from the comfort of your home—or anywhere else with an Internet connection. No more having to take time out of your busy schedule to physically go somewhere to place a t-shirt order.
You can easily order custom t-shirts for your clothing brand, organization, or event while you sit on your couch and watch a football game. Just hop on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, connect to the Internet, and go to a reputable online t-shirt printing company’s website (just like this one!)
Why is Ordering T-Shirts Online Better?
There are quite a few reasons why ordering t-shirts online is simply better than going to a local shop. Here are some of the most notable ones:
Online T-Shirt Printing Makes Way for Scalability
One of the best things about ordering custom t-shirts online is that it allows your t-shirt printing orders to scale up easily. Need 100 shirts for a volunteer event? No problem.
But what if you need 5,000 shirts for a marketing campaign? Again, no problem.
When you work with a major online t-shirt printing company (like us), you can print as many shirts as you need without breaking a sweat. That’s something most local screen printers can’t say.
There are no maximums. You can order as many shirts as you need without having to worry about a local shop being able to accommodate your large order.
More Bang for Your Buck
In addition to being able to print large orders easily, online t-shirt printing companies can also give you more bang for your buck. That’s because most online t-shirt printers have lower overhead costs than local shops.
What does that mean for you? It means that you can get your custom t-shirts printed at a lower cost without sacrificing quality.
And if you need a large number of shirts, we have great news for you. The more shirts you order, the lower the cost per shirt will be. So, if you need a lot of shirts, ordering them online will save you a lot of money.
If you’re wondering about shipping costs, don’t worry. At Scrappy Apparel, we offer free shipping on all orders so you can score major savings.
A Wider Variety of Printing Services and Products
Local print shops are great, but they are usually limited in the services and products they offer. On the other hand, online t-shirt printing companies like Scrappy Apparel offer a wide variety of printing services and products, which gives you more options for your custom apparel needs.
For example, we offer:
- Screen printing
- Cut and sew manufacturing
- Custom hats
- Private labeling
Think of us as your all-in-one custom apparel solution. We can handle all your t-shirt printing needs, from start to finish.
Better Quality Control
When you order custom t-shirts online, you can trust that you’ll get a high-quality product. That’s because many online t-shirt printing companies have a whole staff of experienced professionals who are dedicated to ensuring that every shirt is printed to perfection.
At Scrappy Apparel, our misprint percentage is virtually nonexistent. Our manufacturing capabilities are top-of-the-line.
When you order custom t-shirts from a local shop, the process can be a bit stressful. There’s usually a lot of back and forth between you and the shop owner or manager.
For example, you might have to go back and forth several times to get the design just right. Or, you might not love the way the shirts turned out but you feel like it’s too much of a hassle to go back and get them redone.
When you order custom t-shirts online, the process is much more streamlined and stress-free. (At least it is when you work with us.)
Let’s Get Specific
So we’ve explained why it’s much easier to order t-shirts online, right? Well, now let’s talk about how it’s not only easier, but better overall when you place your t-shirt order with Scrappy Apparel.
Besides our free estimates, design layouts, fast turnaround time, and free shipping, we offer something that will absolutely blow your mind. It’s called the BBP.
Scrappy’s Brand Building Process (BBP)
No, it doesn’t stand for beautiful, blissful printing—but that’s exactly what you get with our BBP.
It actually stands for Brand Building Process. Our BBP is simply how we do things at Scrappy to ensure that we delight our customers with every step of the ordering process, from first contact to final delivery.
Here’s a breakdown of how it works:
Grab Your Free Quote
We start off by providing a free quote. Why would you need to pay for something like a quote? We don’t know!
Regardless, we offer the opportunity to get a free estimate for your specific project. We’ll get back to you in 24 business hours.
Meet Your New Bestie
Once we’ve given you a quote that you cannot resist, we’ll introduce you to your new bestie, a Scrappy Sales Rep.
Our team member will listen to your wants, needs, hopes, and dreams before they get to work and make some custom apparel magic happen.
Review Pre-Production Layouts to Ensure Perfection
How can you be sure your order will turn out perfect unless you look at it and approve it first?
Since Scrappy loves to do everything the way it should be, our sales rep will show you pre-production layouts to review, edit, and approve.
This includes print size, location, private labeling, and other factors depending on what your project entails.
Sit Back and Relax
Once you’ve gone ahead and approved your layouts, we get to work and you get to rest. We’ll get into our zone of genius and manufacture your order. Once we’re done, we’ll send your order straight to your doorstep. Isn’t that just amazing?
How to Ensure Success with Online T-Shirt Printing
Sure, ordering t-shirts online is a piece of cake. But there are still a few factors that are important to keep in mind when you place your t-shirt order. Let’s take a look at them:
The Reputation of the Printing Company
When you work with a reputable company, you can be sure that you’re getting quality products and services. You should look for a company that strives to build great relationships with its customers. This means that they’re always available to answer any questions or concerns you might have.
You should also look for a company that has an excellent track record. If they have happy customers who are willing to share testimonials and leave positive reviews, that’s a good sign.
The Quality of the Products They Use
Who wants to wear a scratchy, itchy, low-quality t-shirt? Not us! That’s why it’s important to choose a company that takes the time to source or develop products that are a joy to wear.
The best way to ensure that you’re getting quality products is to order samples. This way, you can see and feel the products for yourself before you commit to a larger order.
We recommend looking into the different fabrics that are available. If you’re looking for t-shirts that are soft and comfortable, look for ones that are made of 100% cotton or a cotton/polyester blend. If you’re looking for t-shirts that are more durable, look for ones that are made of 100% polyester.
The Potential for a True Partnership
Especially if you are scaling your own clothing brand, there is nothing more helpful than having an expert manufacturer in your corner who can provide you with insights and recommendations on the best decisions to make.
When choosing a company to partner with, look for one that offers more than just t-shirt printing services. Look for a company that is invested in your success.
The Turnaround Time
When you’re working with a professional company, you can expect your order to be delivered on time. But it’s always a good idea to ask about the turnaround time before you place your order.
Make sure you choose a company that has a commitment to providing accurate turnaround times. The last thing you want is to sit around and wait for your order while your manufacturer just makes excuses.
Of course, the cost is always an important consideration when you’re placing an order for t-shirts. But it’s important to remember that you get what you pay for.
Don’t choose the cheapest option just because it’s the cheapest. Instead, look for a company that provides quality products and services at a fair price. This way, you can be sure that you’re getting a good deal without sacrificing quality.
