Where to Buy Blank Tshirts for Crafting One of the questions I get most often is, “where do you purchase blank shirts for screen printing?”  I’m excited to share with you an online supplier that offers amazingly low wholesale prices with no minimum order!  Plus, the shipping is fast and cheap… or free if you order $50 worth of items.  They carry my favorite brands and have a ton of styles to choose from.

Favorite Tshirt Brands for Screen Printing

My next frequently asked questions is what brand shirts do I prefer.  I love a soft-feel shirt.  My go-to brands are Bella + Canvas and Next Level.  Specifically I like the Bella + Canvas 3001C Unisex Jersey Short-Sleeve T-Shirt and Next Level N6210 Men’s CVC Crew.  Bella + Canvas has more color choices but otherwise they are very comparable.  If you are looking for a heavier weight t-shirt that is still soft, try the Comfort Colors brand.

For kids, I will often choose the same brands, Bella + Canvas or Next Level.  Unless I’m making a shirt that will only be worn once or twice, like a holiday shirt that they will outgrow before next year, then I will choose Gildan brand.  Gildan is your basic, everyday t-shirt and one of the cheapest prices you can find.  The white shirt is $1.77!

Where to Buy Youth Child Infant Shirt Blanks

For babies and toddlers, I like the Rabbit Skins brand.  It’s a little softer and great quality.  I choose this brand also because it is not a ribbed material.  Some baby onesies have a ribbed material.  These are a little harder to use in screen printing and can cause some bleeding because of the uneven texture.

      • It’s transfer tape. You can buy it here: https://amzn.to/2SV88RL
        It’s the best transfer tape for easily applying your vinyl to the screen! It comes in a huge roll that will last a long time. I use it for all of my vinyl projects.

  2. What is the fit of these shirts? I have a hard time finding longer shirts that aren’t too tight. Thanks.

    • If you are looking for a loose fit, long shirt, you will love the Bella + Canvas 3001. They are a unisex fit so they are loose and they are longer than most tees. I wear this one almost daily! Shirtsinbulk.com has free returns so you can return them if you don’t like the fit.

  3. Thanks so much for all your tutorials, they’re fantastic! Do you find using t-shirts that contain polyester a problem at all, I recently did a screen printing course and we were told to use 100% cotton as the ink cans it on top of the polyester fibres. Just wondered if this is actually an issue or not. Many thanks! Lauren

    • Thanks for checking out my tutorials! My favorite shirts to screen print are the cotton/poly blends. I love wearing soft style shirts, so these are my go-to. I haven’t had any problem screen printing them. The darker color inks soak right into these shirts and look great (white ink is a little different on all shirts). I have also done 100% poly before too and gotten good results with those!
