When it comes to picking out a favorite brand, our decisions are influenced by several factors. In everything from professional sports equipment to your favorite shirt to lounge around the house in, you choose whatever brand fits into a certain set of criteria.

Synergy Print Design uses the same process when making recommendations for custom name brand apparel. We base suggestions on three important factors:

  • Price
  • Quality
  • Durability

Some of our favorite brands for custom apparel are Gildan, Hanes, and American Apparel.

Great custom shirt ideas from Synergy Print Design

Gildan 5000

Gildan is a great brand overall, and their products are offered by many screen printers. Their apparel is priced well for the cost-conscious consumer, with a wide range of quality. While all of their products are good, we know that some outshine the rest in quality, which influences the direction we may point our customers in.

If you just need plain white T-shirts for a last-minute event and may not wear the shirts again, we would recommend a Gildan style 5000. It’s 100% cotton and one of the least expensive shirts out there.

What if the event is a charity race, and you want to wear something more durable and geared more towards performance? An affordable option for a high-quality, durable shirt might be something from Hanes.

The optimum ortho team.

Hanes 4820 shirts

Hanes make a moisture wicking T-shirt that feels great during a race when you’re trying to stay cool: the Hanes 4820. This particular style is similar in feel to Under Armour, without the hefty price tag to match.

Now, let’s say you are organizing this same charity race, and you want special shirts for the top five winners. You may want something a lot nicer that they will wear more often and appreciate.

Our top recommended brand for such a high-quality prize shirt would be American Apparel.

Band t-shirt

American Apparel

The American Apparel 2001 T-shirt is 100% cotton and has a soft, smooth feel that everyone loves. These shirts also make excellent gifts, and leave a lasting impression.

You can see there’s a lot more to getting a customer what they want than to just pick a T-shirt from a catalog. It’s about understanding what you want, even if you don’t know when you come in and see us. We ask you the important questions that will help narrow down exactly what you’re looking for.

Here at Synergy, our team has years of experience and a great knowledge of the products available to you. Come see us and let us help you get what you need!
