What is Better 50/50 or 100% Cotton?

A 50/50 blend is better if you need custom t-shirts for sports jerseys or volunteers, whereas cotton is better for company apparel, band merch, or gift shops. Overall, the main difference is that cotton is heavier and the print is less likely to fade.

What is the Right Logo Size for Shirts?

If you're printing a logo on the front of t-shirts, the ideal size is about 11" x 12.5" for adult men, 9" to 11" for adult women, and 9" to 10.5" for youth shirts. This is the most common area to print a graphic, so use these measurements for the best look.
