American Apparel 2408 – Fine Jersey Tank
American Apparel has far and wide become the go-to company for promotional tees. According to Jeff Sheinbein, CEO of Social Imprints and industry veteran, “American Apparel is the industry standard. They have the most recognizable t-shirt blank in the industry. They were the original and they set the standard.” The Los Angeles-based clothing company continues to exceed expectations, and their Fine Jersey Tank is no exception. To put it simply, this thing is fucking cozy. This unisex tank features a nice loose drape making it the perfect tee to throw on over your swimsuit or after a sweltering gym sesh. Above all else, it is exceptionally smooth and tight-knit — i.e., a screen printer’s wet dream.
Next Level 6933 – Terry Racerback Tank
If you want to create a tee that women will want to wear, Next Level’s Terry Racerback Tank is your best bet. The Terry Tank is super soft, lightweight, and fitted (which means it’ll actually be worn in public). Next Level has been a popular secret among industry experts since the very beginning. Next Level is an American Apparel knockoff. And that isn’t a bad thing. With Next Level, you get all the benefits of an American Apparel silhouette at a reduced price. Affordable and high-quality? Gasp.
Bella + Canvas 1001 – Women’s Baby Rib Short Sleeve Tee
Anyone who has been tasked with creating their company’s promotional tee in the past knows that Bella + Canvas is the place to go for quality, fashionable women’s tees. And much of that success can be attributed to their Women’s Baby Rib Short Sleeve Tee (i.e., the little black dress of startup tees). Not only does this hundred-percent cotton shirt fit great, but it looks good on everyone. Featuring a classic silhouette with a slim fit, crew neck, and short sleeves, the B+C 1001 is to the stereotypical girl-next-door as the hoodie is to the stereotypical techie.
American Apparel 2456 – Fine Jersey Short Sleeve V-Neck
For those of you who thought that Simon Cowell was the only person who still sports a v-neck, think again. While the v-neck definitely had its time in the spotlight—oft worn by the likes of Jude Law, Drake, and Tyson Beckford—it has recently become popular among us common folk. And if you’ve ever donned one yourself, we can almost guarantee it was American Apparel’s Fine Jersey Short Sleeve V-Neck. Note that it doesn’t say deep v-neck. Alas, those have never been—and, God willing, will never be—stylish. This particular tee is especially popular for screen printing because of its smooth and tight-knit material made from one-hundred-percent cotton. The only tricky part about these bad boys is that your design can’t be too big or spread across the front. But if you’re interested in doing a simple logo, the v-neck is a decent choice.
Bella + Canvas 8850 – Women’s Flowy Long Sleeve Off Shoulder Tee
Remember when we said that Bella + Canvas is known for their fashionable women’s tees? Well, we have more proof with their Women’s Flowy Long Sleeve Off Shoulder Tee. The premise of this tee is not nearly as complicated as its name may suggest: Bella + Canvas gave the essential long-sleeve tee a facelift and the result was the B+C 8850. Featuring a poly-viscose blend, draped silhouette, and wide neckline that can be worn on or off the shoulder, this comfortable option ensures that your startup tee will be worn to both morning Starbucks runs and mid-afternoon spin classes.
Hanes 6319 – Adult Beefy-T Long-Sleeve T-Shirt
Tech folks, by and large, are known to work long hours, sometimes at the expense of their personal style. And, let’s face it, they’re probably not wearing yesterday’s outfit because they got lucky last night. Fortunately, Hanes has the answer to every dedicated techie’s prayers with its Adult Beefy-T Long-Sleeve T-Shirt. “The Beefy-T has the same soft feel of the American Apparel tee but less of a fashionable fit,” says Sheinbein. This men’s tee features a full-cut, which assures roomy comfort. Plus, the pure cotton feels terrifically soft all day (and night) long.
American Apparel 2406 – Fine Jersey Pocket Short Sleeve T-Shirt
Rounding off our list of shirts, we introduce you to American Apparel’s Pocket Sleeve Tee. Pocket tees are the hottest new thing among women and men alike. Men feel like they’re getting all the comfortable benefits of a short-sleeve tee while also being semi-trendy with that ever-game changing pocket on their chest, while women view it as the t-shirt equivalent of the super popular boyfriend jean. Made from 100% fine jersey cotton and tightly knit for exceptional screen printing results, the pocket tee is here to stay. That said, does anyone really even use that pocket? Ever? Curious.
